First appearing on The John Byner Comedy Hour before becoming a regular character on shows like Van Dyke and Company, Bizarre, and his own show, Super Dave Osborne was an Evel Knievel parody played by longtime comedian Bob Einstein.
Dave always set himself up for incredibly dangerous stunts (which were masterminded by his incomprehensible sidekick, Fuji Hakayito), only to get horribly maimed in the process. It was very obviously a dummy getting hurt, and we all loved his hilarious schtick, so here's 15 great moments from the living legend's career.

The crazy bastard actually went up against Mr. T!

For those that experienced the 80’s, its hard to forget the fond memories of being able to wear bright neon clothes, making mix tapes and working out with Jane Fonda. And for those born after this golden decade, it’s clear to see that the 80’s is still having an impact on future generations, with today’s teens still listening to Bon Jovi whilst fashion stores such as Asos and Topshop are bringing back 80’s fashion style.

People saw a major shift from the conventional TV platform to web providers like Netflix, Amazon Prime etc. As a result, a great multitude of people started watching their favourite shows as and when they wanted, often also exploring programs that they would have never discovered otherwise.On the whole, everyone concerned had a better idea about the television ratings, and those ratings in turn influenced the efforts of producers. Today, we see a refreshing variety of TV shows, ranging from alien conspiracies, crime thrillers to
There are a bunch of movies from our childhood that looking back are kind of messed up. Whether it's kids getting turned into blueberries or aliens coming down from outer space only to phone home, we've had to deal with a lot. But there's one movie that confused a lot of kids, and probably scarred even more for life. Watership Down was an animated movie made in 1978, and while a cartoon about rabbits seems like it'd be a great choice for children, the truth is that it was kind of horrific.
