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.
His started off innocently enough...
Then there was the time where he got wrecked by a wrecking ball
Or when he was a living archery target
Let's never forget his car wreck stunt
Or when his "roller-skis" went horribly wrong
Remember that time he jumped from the top of a building?
Super Dave's stunts only got more insane from here...
Playing piano on the back of a truck seemed like such a great idea at the time...
His stunt school went about as well as could be expected...
Then there's his bungee jump
The crazy bastard actually went up against Mr. T!
He kinda lost his head during one of his stunts...
But nothing could stop him from his... attraction to his line of work
Of course a monster truck got involved at some point
If you celebrate Christmas, then you know that the most important and exciting day of the year is the one whenever your Sears Wish Book arrives. That's when you know that it's time to start writing out your Christmas list, comparing all the potential toys that you might consider. Pages and pages of Barbies, Lego, and board games to dream about, before writing them down on your letter to Santa. The Wish Book is one of those things that you never really stop looking at. You just keep on flipping through the pages any time you get bored, probably because
When you were growing up, the library of video games was nowhere near as extensive as it is now. There were obviously a lot of good choices, but compared to the variety now, it was such a small percentage. Clearly it was because video games were still new when we were all young, but what we lacked in quantity, we made up for in devotion. Sure, there weren't new games every day that we could play on our phones, or elaborate and large games with graphics that end up looking so realistic it's creepy, but we did have characters that
Chevy Chase is one of those iconic actors who had their hay day in the eighties, but since then, has seen a huge change in the way the public perceives them. While he was beloved for his Saturday Night Live classics and of course his time as the patriarch of the Griswald family, the actor no longer has the same clout that he used to. He had a brief attempt at a comeback, but if anything, he ended up making everything worse. But now he has spoken with The Washington Post about his career and his controversies, and it really
Watching Grease as a kid was basically like seeing the epitome of idyllic high school situations. The coolest guy in school falls in love with a girl who teaches him how to be a better person, while teaching her how to loosen up. It really defined high school movies forever, and has remained a classic ever since. It's hard to believe that it has been 40 years since the movie came out, but here we are. When Grease came out in 1978, I don't know that anyone expected it to become the mega-hit that it did. John Travolta is still
