Golfer With No Arms
Check out this vintage video clip from 1932.
Tom McAuliffe has no arms.
He didn't let his disability get the best of him.
Tom mastered a way to hold his golf club between his neck, shoulders and face.
He is able to golf better than most despite the fact that he has no arms.
This is an inspiring story of overcoming obstacles that life might throw at you.
How The Grinch Stole Christmas Turns 45 Years Old
"How The Grinch Stole Christmas" is a classic animated TV special that was created in 1966.
For the last 45 years this cartoon has been king of the Christmas time classics.
This 26 minute film was based on a book by the awesome Dr. Seuss.
It was directed by Chuck Jones, and was one of the few Christmas special to be made at that time.
It originally appeared on TV on December 18, 1966.
It has be rerun more times than anyone can count, of course.
I love this film.
Here's a clip of the Grinch Song.
I'm loving this strange video from 1954.
Irene Burton is a master of rabbit hypnosis.
She is demonstrating her amazing talent by using her hands and eyes to hypnotize one of her dwarf pet rabbits.
Once the rabbit is in a trance, she lays her beloved pet down and it just stays where she puts it.
This is so weird.
Thanks to British Pathe, the world's finest news and entertainment video film archive, for uploading retro videos like this for all to enjoy.
Paul Simon On Sesame Street
Check out this awesome retro video from 1972.
I'm a big Paul Simon fan.
Paul is a famous singer and songwriter that gained his fame during the 1960's.
He appeared on Sesame Street a few times.
In this clip he is singing "Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard" with the help of one talented little girl.
A little dose of retro to start your day!
Tight Rope Wedding
This is footage from a bizarre wedding a long time ago.
Unfortunately, I don't know the date of this film.
The wedding was held in Toulouse, France.
The bride and groom decided to get married on a tight rope.
Hundreds of people gathered to watch this dangerous event.
This is such a cool old video.
The change in technology over just 59 years!
These pictures are of old ads seen in magazines in 1952!
It is amazing to see how technology has improved over the years.
If these were the hottest, newest items to buy in 1952, what are we going to see 50 years from now? Flying cars?
It is hard to even imagine.
The first picture is called the "Galaxy".
It is a four-speed multi-record changer. It was known as the turnable wonder.
The second picture is called the "Cobra-Matic".
William Wants A Doll
Check out this short cartoon from the Marlo Thomas project, "Free to Be, You and Me."
This segment is titled, "William Wants a Doll" and is about a little boy who wants a doll instead of another more masculine toy for his birthday.
The idea came from a children's picture book called William's Doll by Charlotte Zolotow.
Both the book and the song were released in 1972.
This is truly a retro video.
A lot of great cartoons came out in the 1970's.
Mr. Rogers Breakdancing
Fred McFeely Rogers (March 20, 1928 – February 27, 2003) was the television host for Mister Rogers' Neighborhood.
Mr. Rogers created the show because he was displeased with the way television addressed children.
His show went on to create 895 official episodes.
This is one of my favorite Mister Rogers' clips of all time.
He always encouraged people to try new things...in this clip he's backing it up.
It is really endearing to watch old Mister Rogers learning to dance from this cute 12 year old breakdancer.
I love when he does the wave!
By the way, this kid is awesome, makes me long for the days when people just busted out a giant piece of cardboard and started busting moves.
I think we all kind of miss Mister Rogers in our own little way.
Happy Halloween Cheesy Rap
This movie clip has always been one of my Halloween favorites.
It's from the 1989 classic film Teen Witch.
If you haven't seen it...put it on your list of movies to see.
