Give-A-Show Fridays: The Beverly Hillbillies!

This week starts out the one additional set of slides Remco released for their Ugly Mugly Projector, and they feature TV shows that I believe were all on CBS at the time. There were two Beverly Hillbillies slides, two Hogan's Heroes, two Wild Wild West, two Gunsmoke, and two Family Affair.

Interesting story as to how I got these in my collection. When I bid on the Ugly Mugly projector set with the Doctor Dolittle slides, I put in a bid for a dollar or two more than the starting bid, and managed to win with the starting bid, to my surprise (the only other set I'd seen in recent months had a starting bid of about 3 times what I paid for mine with postage). The seller was actually the seller's mother, and the seller didn't even know these were put up for sale by her mom, so it took me some time to get it.

Anyway, the package arrived, and when I opened it up, I was surprised and delighted to not only get the complete Ugly Mugly Doctor Dolittle projector and set, but also all ten of these slides, plus another set of Doctor Dolittle slides that was missing only one slide (plus an extra of #1)! I did some research, and could only find one place on the web that even mentioned these other slides at all -- that was a Hogan's Heroes fan site, that put a dollar value on those slides alone of about $50-100 each.

Here's the package for this release, in case you're curious:

Next week: Hogan's Heroes!


  1. somehow.. they don't quite capture the feel of the show..

    Oh and on that second one.. small mistake.. the first slide or so, is repeated in a place where it seams clear it wasn't meant to be ^_^

  2. You're the only one who's mentioned it so far, MM! If I can ever figure out which DVD I've archived the video file to, I'll fix it and repost!
