Cricketmom, that was fun to read. I was born in 60' so I remember most of it! For some reason it made me remember the Converse colored sneakers (Green, Orange, Blue, Red...all kinds of colors. Also Schwinn bikes! Don't ask me why... ltlgto
ltlgto.................He wasn't familar with the Schwinn Krane, until we googled it. Then he got on a roll and started looking at every Schwinn known to man. He said they are re-making it, now he is pining away about the Phantom again. I think that is the one with the knee action.
I have an OLD Schwinn bike, prolly from the 70's or 80's. I ride it to school everyday, rain or shine. I love it; it's the Ferrari of old bikes! LOL ---Allie the Chihuahua http://www.dogster.com/?41063 ---Mönica the Kitty http://www.catster.com/?57596
How about them "Banana" seats! Cricketmom, your husband may be a little older than me. I think the Phantom is from the mid 50's. They have a remake of them also. Allie, I have a 79' Schwinn in green and yellow my wife bought for me at a garage sale. Does your have the long banana seat on it? We named one of our dogs Sen-Sen (as in the old licorice candy). Kandylands Sen Sen-Sation. We sold him as a pet when he went over-sized, but I think the buyers planned on keeping the name. I don't remember the candies myself, but I've heard it on a Billy Joel song. ltlgto
ltlgto.............My husband has not celebrated a birthday since he turned 39. I remember when those banana seats came out. I have a Schwinn in my garage that I bought at a grage sale. It is blue and chrome. I can't remember the name of it. I polished it up. It looks great. I dust the cobwebs off of it every now and then.
Beany and Cecil - One of the earliest television sea serpents was featured on BEANY AND CECIL/SYN/1950, a 15-minute puppet show produced by Bob Clampett about the exploits of a small boy named Beany who sailed the seven seas accompanied by his pet Cecil, the green "seasick" sea serpent and Captain Huffenpuff, the blowhard captain of their ship, the Leakin' Lena. Originally entitled TIME FOR BEANY, the program first premiered on KTLA-TV in Los Angeles on February 1949. An animated cartoon spin-off BEANY & CECIL/ABC/1962-64 continued their adventures. Whenever Beany was threatened by the program's chief villain, Dishonest John, Cecil came rushing to the rescue with his favorite saying "I'm coming Beanie-boy!"
Who's Beanie and Cecil? Only the neatest kid and his sea-serpent friend that ever lived. At least on TV. >Whenever Beany was threatened by the program's chief villain, Dishonest John, Cecil came rushing to the rescue with his favorite saying "I'm coming Beanie-boy!"< I had a Beanie Boy stuffed toy(sorry, I refuse to call it a doll) and my cousin had the Cecil stuffed toy. They had pull strings and said different things. ltlgto
I remember everything except the Studebaker. Glad I'm not the only one! Romper Room Captain Kangaroo Lassie Bonaza My Three Sons My Favorite Martian My Mother the Car (I'm probably the only one that remembers that one!)
Cricketmom: that was a fun read. I too, was born in the 60's (really late 60's) lol and i remember most of that stuff too. I wish I had kept my coca-cola running shoes lol anyone else have a pair of those?
