Slogging through Jon's Random Acts of Geekery this morning and the alcohol induced Alzeheimer's I seem to have contracted has dissipated for a few. Thank goodness for site's like this one.
Of particular interest is the post on the "Scarecrow of Romney Marsh", Walt Disney's TV adaptation of a series of English stories featuring "Doctor Syn," a Vicar by day, and the fearsome Scarecrow by night that aired in three installments in February of 1964.
Of added importance was its date of airing: February 9, 1964. This was the night the Beatles made their first appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show. To young 9 year old Yuma, it was the absolute tits and the greatest night of television programming ever seen.
