1. Beverly Hillbillies - Granny's Garden

Description: LikeTelevision™ Fans - this episode - Granny's Garden - features Granny wanting to plow a garden in her front yard. Mr Drysdale and Jane take the Clampetts on a tour around the california's commercial farms and a supermarket. This is an odd episode and seems like a big infomercial for the california growing industry.

3. Boy in the Plastic Bubble, The

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents - a cult classic made for tv movie called The Boy in the Plastic Bubble starring John Travolta, Robert Reed, Diane Hyland, and Glynnis O'Connor. Travolta stars as Tod Lubitch, a real kid with a huge problem with his immune system, so he has to live in the plastic bubble. While most folks remember the imfamous Jerry Seinfeld episode with the kid in the plastic bubble (a.k.a. Bubble Boy), few have seen this mildly annoying sugar coated california treat. The film is filled with star power - with Robert Reed, best known as Mike Brady from the Brady Bunch as the Dad, Ralph Bellamy as the Immunologist, and Diana Hyland as the mother. As you might already know - she was John Travolta's lover at the time (she was 41, Travolta about 23). She died on March 27, 1977 in Travolta's arms after suffering through breast cancer. Diana Hyland was also the original mom and tv show wife of Dick Van Patten on the show Eight is Enough. Diana Hyland wins an Emmy for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama, the movie was also nominated for an Emmy in Sound Editing and Outstanding Writing in a Special.

8. Classic TV Commercials - DeSoto

Description: The LikeTelevision™ classic tv channel proudly presents a classic car commercial for the DeSoto, which I believe was a division of Chrysler.

12. Fast and the Furious, The

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents - the 1954 classic, The Fast and The Furious starring John Ireland and Dorothy Malone. This was the original film that started the series of movies with similar titles, most recently a decent Rob Cohen remake in 2001 starring Paul Walker and Vin Diesel and another offspring car happy film from the legendary John Singleton called 2 Fast 2 Furious, which also stars Paul Walker. But if the vintage and old school is your passion, nothing beats the original from the mid fifties. While the Jaguar XKE is nothing short of awesome, my favorite ride in this movie has got to the 1952 Allard J2X. Oh my... what a car and it even looks faster with the beautiful Dorothy Malone behind the wheel.

23. I Drunk Too Much

Description: I Drunk Too Much comes to LikeTelevision from Jon Bare, out in sunny california. This short film and music video tells the story how Jon got a D.U.I. in california because he ... well.... had too much to drink. One is reminded of the Bobby Fuller Four - I fought the law... and the law won. Jon still has the Mazda RX 7, and animated the dancing fried chicken legs. Check out this mondo music video, rolled up in broadband internet media, and folded into a cool song. Also - check out James Dean, doing a PSA with Gig Young on Driving Safety.

24. James Dean PSA for Driving Safety

Description: James Dean in an ironic PSA (public service announcement) for driving safety with Gig Young. A disinterested Dean tells young kids to drive safely and that the life you might save, could be his. (Dean was killed in a terrible car wreck in his Porsche 550 Spyder, which was a convertible sports car. He had already received a ticket for speeding that same day!) I believe this was made for the california Highway Patrol - probably as part of a plea bargain to get out of another speeding ticket. Dean was killed by a fellow named Turnipseed - see the James Dean Story, a documentary on LikeTelevision, for more on the story.

35. No Smoking at LikeTelevision

Description: LikeTelevision™ proudly presents - No Smoking at LikeTelevision, a cult classic from Zim Zum, the musical comedy show we created for the internet in the summer of 2000. What were we thinking? This clip features Jim Stafrani, an early user of LikeTelevision declaring that LikeTelevision is the first smoke free web site - EVER! He appears serious, though it is unclear what he is doing to the saxophone player sculpture with his wandering fingers. For an opposing view - we turn to the insanity of Zim Zum's producer, Frank Random - who had some fun with the audio from a Bill Hicks comedy routine - mixed with an old promo featuring James Arness having a drink and a smoke, and wearing boxer shorts instead of pants. Wow.. so ahead of his time. The clip ends with Dodge Benson lamenting about how he won't be able to make the payments on his cadillac now that he has been fired as host when the show was cancelled. Plus... a few beers later - he appears more honest about how he really feels about it.
