'Tis the Season

It took a while to adjust to holiday specials airing in November. I remember having only one chance to catch these programs as a kid, and that made them a little more special.As the flood of seasonal mirth begins, it's tricky to sift through all the different programs now available 24/7.When choosing what to watch, avoid any sequels or live-action remakes.

Almost.5) Frosty the Snowman (1969)Happy birthday! Yes, it's fu... read more

SORRY ABOUT THAT, CHIEF

Don Adams, a three-time Emmy winner for his role as Maxwell Smart (aka Agent 86) on the '60s James Bond-spoofing series Get Smart, died on Sunday of a lung infection. He was 82. Born Donald James Yarmy, Adams dropped out of high school and joined the Marines in 1941. After contracting malaria during the Guadalcanal campaign, he returned to the United States as a drill instructor, where he acquired his distinctive clipped style of speaking — one that would serve him well professionally. In addition to Get Smart, its feature film (The Nude Bomb) and prime-time resurrections, his credits included voicing Tennessee Tuxedo, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer's Comet and Inspector Gadget. read more
