No fair using a search engine to search the web.  I just want to see who knows this bit of trivia.<br /><br />From where does the following partial sentance hail from?  <br /><br />"...crack up in a dirigible..."<br /><br />

I'm just trying to think of a tv show that has a dirigible in it.<br /><br />Kim

<br />Now you have me running through the whole Gilligan's Island theme song to see if it's in there somewhere.  Thanks for the ear worm!<br /><br />

I've been wracking my brain all day long, and I have no clue.  Which is kind of freaky, since I seem to be so very good at such things

Was that from the Excelsior episode of Archer?

Okay.  It would help if I titled this correctly.<br /><br />Originally, I had posted "Televition (Cinema?) Trivia."  I then removed Cinema.  Well, I was wrong.  It appears to have been Cinema only (and appears to have been shown around the same time television first made its appearance).<br /><br />I thought it was interesting, the use of "crack up" intead of "crash."<br /><br />A 1970s show was made from the 1930s short collection of about 11 or 12 episodes, which were themselves based off of (I think) a comic book strip, which was based off of two short stories.  Interesting how an idea evolves.<br /><br />

Well, I had no idea where that was from, so googled it - and still came up with nothing.  I'm curious to see where it came from, and if it was from a show I've ever heard of.

Would that be "Buck Rogers"?  That's the only TV series/movie serial/comic strip I can think of that fits the time period.

<br /><br /><br />Great Guess.  It is indeed!<br /><br />When I realized there was a 1939 short series, "Buck Rogers in the 25th Century," I decided I needed to see it for a comparison to the 1970s show.<br />Instead of blasting off into deep space and suffering an accident that put Buck to sleep for 500 years, he and a teenage Buddy were in an accident in a "hot air balloon," which went down in a remote area due to an ice storm.  As they decended, they turned on a tank of gas which the boys father, the professor, had told them to turn on.  It was a "suspended animation" gas that the doctor had invented.  When the hot air balloon "cracked up," it was in a snowy region and the balloon was quickly covered by an avelanch (sp).<br /><br />Wow, although it was 16 or so years too early, the boy looks and sounds very much like the eldest son in "Leave it to Beaver."  Even his mannerisms, such as his head-nodding, seem identical.<br /><br /><br />Anyway, I thought it was worth a look back, just for the heck of it.  Cinema sure was different back then.

The Theme from the 70's Buck Rogers is one of my favorites of all time.  When they did it on South Park, it made me want to pop the series DVD in again to watch it  =)
