It Was a Thing on TV: Episodes 262 & 263 + Minisode 19 – Stumptown/Raising Dad/Fuji Vice

Marvel Month on It Was a Thing on TV continues why we also pay tribute to a wrestling legend!

First, MCU month rolls along with a recent series where Cobie Smulders has a lot of lesbian sex and some other stuff happens in Portland. This was a good show but sadly the pandemic reared it’s ugly head forcing the show’s premature end. Also, there’s a brief discussion spoiling Episode 4 of “Moon Knight” at the start. You’ve been warned.

Next, Bob Saget is playing a widower taking care of his daughters, but it’s not Full House.  It’s the early 2000s, this show is on the WB, and the two daughters on the show went on to much bigger and better things in the upcoming decades.  Marvel month rolls on with Raising Dad.

Finally, in honor of what would have been Mr. Fuji’s 88th birthday on May 4th, we present perhaps the single greatest thing the legendary WWF manager gave us.

As part of a series of skits on WWF Tuesday Night Titans in 1985, Fuji and his wrestler Don Muraco play Crockett and Tubbs in this parody of the NBC drama. This sketch is so bad it’s good.
