Yello80s Advent Countdown Day 5: The Osmond Family Holiday Special

Back in the day the Osmond family was quite a multi-talented group (Donny and Marie are still in the business) who made sure to knock together a Christmas special from the time the boys were little and sang on the annual Andy Williams Christmas show. Their heyday was around the time the Partridge Family and the Monkees sang their way into our mothers’ teen hearts but the Osmonds were still doing a family Christmas get together...

Yello80s.com salutes TV wonderwoman Cloris Leachman

She’s one of those actresses who has been in just about everything and her unique name is always on the tip of your tongue but you can’t ever get it right away.. Cloris Leachman. In the acting business since the 1984s, Ms. Leachman had her best days (I think, though 70s kids will probably argue me on this) in her older years in the 80s.

Epcot Center: the future is 1986

It’s a testament to Disney’s stranglehold on American culture that kids now still very much want to go to visit the Mouse in his house (and their parents want to even more) as much as I did when I went with my grandparents in 1986. It was the 15th anniversary year of Walt Disney World and Epcot centre and that year I had plenty of TV teasers to string me along until the actual trip. As it turned out, this was my one and...

Disney’s hair-brained theme park ideas

You hear the name Disney and think of many things: Mickey Mouse, the Wonderful World of Disney Sunday night movies, Disney Stores, Goofy hats, Donald- Duck icy pops and theme parks dominated by a fantastic white castle piercing the fireworks-laden blue sky. What you don’t usually think of or hear about (other than the billion conspiracy theories about DisneyLand and DisneyWorld many books have been written about) are the failed...
