In 1958, Tom and Jerry, not the MGM cat and mouse rivalry, but the singers Simon and Garfunkel, released their first single “Our Song”.
In 1959, Walt Disneyʹs movie “The Shaggy Dog” was released in movie theaters. It cost $1 million to make.
In 1970, another case for the Copycat Corner: The Rolling Stone magazine revealed that the opening words of Lennon and McCartneyʹs “Come Together” were the same as the lyrics in Chuck Berryʹs “You Canʹt Catch Me”. The lyrics: “Here come old flat top, he come groovin' up slowly…”.
In 1977, The Final Episode of “The Mary Tyler Moore Show”: Minneapolisʹs WJM has just been bought by a new owner who has made it clear he will be clearing out some of the deadwood on the news staff. Most assumed it would be Ted Baxterʹs empty head that would roll. The staff was summoned and the verdict was swift: “Ted, youʹre staying. And the rest of you guys, Iʹm gonna have to let you go.” After their last broadcast together was over, they stood in the newsroom until gruff news director Lou Grant blurted out, “I treasure you guys.” In a flash, they were locked together in a weepy group hug. Said Lou, “I think we all need some Kleenex.” Georgette replied, “Thereʹs some on Maryʹs desk.” No one wanted to let go, so the whole gang, like some gigantic, ungainly crab, scuttled over to the desk in one of TVʹs most hilarious, touching, and inspired bits of physical comedy.
In 1981, angry parents in Ocean City, New Jersey, protested a sex education book issued to 8th graders that featured “Ms. Wanda Lust” and “Captain Veedee-O.”

In 1983, “Still The Beaver” movie aired. Jerry Mathers is “Still The Beaver.” And June has bad news for the boys, who both happen to be back in town for this CBS reunion movie. While Wally and his wife Mary Ellen are busy having shady building contractor Eddie Haskell create their new home, Momʹs considering selling the old homestead. (Golly Mom, you canʹt do that!) Eventually the Beav does persuade her to sell — to him. All the better for the divorced Beav to raise his sons, Oliver and Corey…Feldman. The reunionʹs a success and leads to a Disney/TBS series “The New Leave it to Beaver,” which runs 105 episodes.
In 1984, Jane Curtin and Susan Saint James star as divorcees sharing living quarters (and the raising of their kids) in CBSʹs “Kate and Allie.” Ari Meyers, Frederick Koehler and Allison Smith play the kids.
In 1986, the “monkey cam” makes its debut on “Late Night With David Letterman.” Its groundbreaking use of a videocamera strapped to a monkey would help prepare America for the camerawork on “N.Y.P.D. Blue.” It was so stupid, it was funny as David Letterman laughed himself silly looking at the monkey doing his normal monkeying around.
In 1994, the largest omelet was 1,383 square feet made with 160,000 eggs in Yokohama, Japan.
