It happened This week!
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!
