Not only had I forgotten Cricket, but I forgot Robert Conrad was in Hawaiian Eye. Though I know I watched the show, I remember him only from Wild Wild West and (even better) Black Sheep Squadron.

Welcome, Anonymous. Hope you find a piece or two of interest.

These were real shows? I've never heard of either of them.

They sure were real shows! I watched them both. What I find interesting is that thinking back, I would have said Surfside 6 was the one I'd most like to get on DVD, but I remember watching and liking Hawaiian Eye, and after seeing the clips, I'm not sure which I'd prefer.

I liked Bourbon Street Beat (the other 77 Sunset Strip spin-off) best, but couldn't find a video for it.

Okay, here I am. The biggest living fan of these two shows.

Hm. Hunks in swimming trunks. I wonder why?

Are you still head of the Poncie Ponce Fan Club, Evan? Does everyone recall that Troy Donahue was on the show for a year?
