My wackadoodle Auntie and Unkle have done it again over at Kindertrauma. I know, I know, I’ve practically become a fucking commercial for their website, but it’s just that damn awesome!
I recently submitted a “NAME THAT TRAUMA” to the Kindertrauma Castle hoping to help out a coworker of mine….and uh, the sheer brilliance that came pouring out of my Auntie’s mind is nothing short of breathtaking. Seriously. Go and click the pretty pink words in this paragraph.
Okay…you see what I’m talking about? Never mind that one of the awesome Kindertrauma readers figured out what movie my coworker was looking for…the whole B.J. AND THE BEAR riffing made my weekend.
And it got me thinking about B.J. AND THE BEAR…remember the intro? man, the song is fucking killer!
BJ AND THE BEAR
I really thought the lyrics were “Blue jeans and better scenes“, but turns out they’re “New dreams and better scenes“…no offense to the super talented, Glen A. Larson, but don’t my lyrics sound way more awesome? The answer is yes. Anyway…
You can’t talk about B.J. (Billie Joe) McKay and his buddy, Bear, without mentioning Sheriff Lobo! Remember his show? Sure you do! It was called THE MISADVENTURES OF SHERIFF LOBO! Remember? No? Here’s the opening:
MISADVENTURES OF SHERIFF LOBO
How ’bout that gratuitous ass shot in the opening?! TeeVee ruled when I was a kid!
Speaking of TeeVee shows I loved as a kid, but no one seems to remember…anyone else out there remember the DUKES OF HAZZARD spinoff, ENOS? You see, Enos (the bumbling Deputy Sheriff) joins a Special Branch of the Los Angeles Police and partners up with a cool Black cop named Turk (Samuel E. Wright, the voice of Sebastian in Disney’s The Little Mermaid). Every episode was book ended by Enos writing a letter to Daisy Duke (his one true love) back in Hazzard County, telling her about all his awesome adventures in wild and crazy LA!
I’ve been all over the damn internet trying to find the intro. I can’t remember how the theme went, but I do remember the end of the opening…Enos and Turk take down some bad guys and Turk puts out his hand for a “gimme five” and Enos, God bless him, slaps a “thumbs up” right in the palm of Turk’s hand!
STOP THE PRESSES!!!!!
Thanks to Sonny Shroyer’s official website, I have found the intro!
Peep that shit right HERE! Click that link and scroll down…you’ll see a link for the Enos series, click it and be amazed by the intro to Enos!
And I’ll do you one better! Click HERE to see the closing credits which run over the fabled White thumbs up in the Black gimme five salute…which is possibly the most inspiring image ever put on television!
Wow. Thanks internet for truly having everything I really need!
