Here’s a full 180 degree departure from my norm around the bubble, but this thought came to mind and I just had to take a shot at it (maybe a partial pun intended!). When I was growing up, shows including Three’s Company, Happy Days, Hee Haw and All In The Family, to name a few, were staples in my afternoon and evening entertainment. There was one, however, that has remained near and dear to my heart, and that would be Welcome Back Kotter. Oh, how I loved tuning in to see what those lovable misfit Sweat Hogs were up to, forever wrangled by their misfit of a teacher, sweet, quirky Mr. Kotter. My favorite characters on the show were, of course, Mr. Kotter, and the impossibly handsome, charming, dreamboat, Vinnie Barbarino, aka John Travolta. Years after I rode my tricycle out of childhood, I came across these dolls on Ebay. How could I resist a walk back down TV memory lane? And so tonight I give you those goofy guys with hearts of gold and perhaps a brain cell or two between their fabulous heads… Mr. Kotter and Vinnie Barbarino! May the Sweat Hogs live on in reruns from here to eternity! :)
Shot with no flash inside my refrigerator… yes, you read that right… amazingly terrific lighting in there, oddly enough!
