The nose-twitch­ing witch Sa­man­tha Stephens flew onto tele­vi­sion screens when Be­witched de­buted in 1964. Star­ring El­iz­a­beth Mont­gomery and Dick York, the show ran for eight sea­sons, out­do­ing The Ad­dams Fam­ily, I Dream of Jean­nie and The Mun­sters as the long­est -run­ning fan­tasy sit­com se­ries!

Charles Lewis Tif­fany and Teddy Young founded Tif­fany and Co. in 1837. Be­fore be­com­ing one of the world’s pre­mier jew­elry providers, the store was a sta­tionery and fancy-goods em­po­rium and even­tu­ally de­signed the New York Yan­kees’ “NY” logo, re­vised the Seal of the United States and even de­signed the White House china in 1968!

Dis­ney’s an­i­mated tele­vi­sion se­ries Duck­tales pre­miered in 1987. The show in­spired its own fea­ture-length movie, Duck­tales the Movie: Trea­sure of the Lost Lamp, which was the very first Dis­ney an­i­mated movie to be spun off from a tele­vi­sion se­ries!

Grammy-win­ner Lit­tle Richard recorded his first hit “Tutti Frutti” in 1955. He wrote the song while work­ing as a dish­washer: Af­ter getting a surge of dirty dishes, he shouted the tune’s catchy lyrics, “Awap bop a lup bop, a wop bam boom, take ‘em out!” and then penned the rest of the song that night!
