Robot For Sale, Says "beedie beedie beedie" and Other Annoying Things

Buck Rogers was never one of my favorite shows, but I watched it faithfully every week. I was too young to notice that Buck's pants, if you can call them that, are a bit tight in the crotch. I guess it was the whole scifi thing that I loved. But if there's one thing I hated about that show it was Tweekie. I'm not even sure if that's how his name is spelled, but everytime I heard him saying "beedie beedie beedie..." it drove me nuts. In fact, just typing it here makes me want to punch that stupid robot in the brain.

I'm with ya on this one, Chris. That robot made the show damn-near unwatchable.

Apparently, the character of Wilma Deering also inspired a lot of women to enter flight school, so the series had some positive effect on civilization as we know it.

Everyone wore tight pants in the seventies. It's incredible that any babies were born for a decade.

I don't think they're pants. It's actually spray paint. Thankfully, for me, Wilma also wore the spray paint.
I watched this show faithfully as well. I liked the episode about the space vampire, who sucked whatever-it-was out of people by putting his index and pinkie finger on each side of their neck.
"Beedy, beedy, beedy. Heeeyyy, Buck!"

Oh thank god I'm not the only one who hated Tweekie. I didn't know Wilma inspired women to enter flight school - score one for Wilma!

I can't remember the space vampire, but last year I picked up an old Buck Rogers VHS where the plot involved a rock concert. If there's one thing that's horrible, it's when scifi shows try to show concerts of the future - lots of lights, bad costumes and terrible disco!

Actually Monkey, I think the tight pants made people more interested in trying to make babies.

Made them want to try yes. But their sperm was boiled due to close contact with body heat.
