In 1906, comedian Henny (Henry) Youngman was born in Liverpool, England, and was later raised in Brooklyn, New York. Dubbed the "King of the One-Liners," Youngman was known for his simple, rapid-fire jokes -- sometimes telling over 50 of them in an eight-minute comedy routine. His famous one-liner -- "Take my wife, please!" -- became so popular it was included in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations. Youngman also appeared in such films as "The History of the World, Part I," "Amazon Women on the Moon," "The Unkissed Bride," "National Lampoon Goes to the Movies" and in a cameo appearance in "Goodfellas." His name also became a running gag on TV's "Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In" ("Oh! THAT Henny Youngman!") He died at age 91 on February 24, 1998.

In 1934, An Academy Award (Short Subjects, Cartoons) is won for the film, "Three Little Pigs".

In 1935, The Mickey Mouse film, "Mickey's Service Station" is released. Donald Duck and Goofy also appear.

In 1955, "The Ballad of Davy Crockett" by Bill Hayes reached the number one spot on the pop music charts and stayed for five weeks beginning this day. The smash, hit song sold more than 7,000,000 records on more than 20 different labels. Everyone seemed to be singing the song that saluted the frontier hero who was "Born on a mountain top in Tennessee..." Coonskin caps started sprouting up everywhere as the Crockett craze spread like a frontier fire. "Davy Crockett" was a big TV show in the 1950s that starred Fess Parker in the memorable Walt Disney production.

In 1957, "The Gumby Show", TV Childrens show by Art Clokey, debut on NBC as a spin-off of "The Howdy Doody Show." The Claymation(tm) star was accompanied by his pony pal Pokey too; first runs also appearred in 1969 with new characters Prickle and Goo, and even more new episodes in 1988.

In 1963, Peter, Paul and Mary released the single, "Puff The Magic Dragon". Through the years, controversy continually surrounded the song. It was banned by several radio stations whose management figured that the song was about the elicit joys of smoking marijuana. The group denied this startling assumption. "It's about a magic dragon named Puff" they said. So there. The trio recorded a dozen hits that charted between 1962 and 1969. "Puff" was their third song. It went to number two on the pop charts and puffed around for nearly three months. The group next did a Bob Dylan protest song, "Blowin' In The Wind" and ended a sterling career with a John Denver song -- the group's biggest -- "Leaving On A Jet Plane".

In 1966, "Batman" (also Mar 17) In his first two months in prime time, the Caped Crusader battled the Joker, the Riddler, and the Penguin -- and became a national obsession. But when Catwoman steals his heart (not to mention two priceless gold cat statues) in "The Purr-Fect Crime" and "Better Luck Next Time," Batman (Adam West) meets his match. Pursuing the lost treasure of pirate Captain Manx, Catwoman lures Batman and Robin (Burt Ward) to her hideout. She nearly does them in, but they break free and track her down. In the chase, she falls off a rocky ledge into a bottomless pit. But Catwoman had nine lives and appeared in eight more episodes. Although Newmar turned over her cat ears to Eartha Kitt, the first Catwoman remains the best. Meow and forever.

In 1991, Eddie Van Halen and his wife, actress Valerie Bertinelli, gave birth to a son in Los Angeles. The couple named the child Wolfgang Van Halen. Why Wolfgang? After CNN war correspondent Wolf Blitzer? No, sorry. He was named after composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, who was rocked by Falco in the song "Rock Me, Amadeus", which was parodied into "Rock Me Jerry Lewis" by Tri 5 f/ Mike & Bud, which. coincidently, is Jerry Lewis's birthday, who had many funny records played on "Dr. Demento"'s radio show, which also played "Big Bad William" by Van Halen, with guitarist Eddie Van Halen, wed to Val, who both gave birth to Wolfie.
