In 1981, It was the “official” launch of the day David Tanny began compiling his celebrity birtdays and some notable facts in what would eventually be shared with other people all over the world as the first entries of Daveʹs Datebooks were pencilled in on cheap notebook paper. The first entry: the space shuttle “Columbia” blasted off from Cape Canaveral on its first test flight. How appropriate! The other first entries: yesterdayʹs Van Halen-Bertinelli wedding four years to the day his pet bird Tweety died, and the disputed birthdates of Jesus Christ.

In 1984, NBCʹs “The Duck Factory,” a short-lived sitcom about the workings of a struggling animation studio, comes to life.

You can say that was just a late-night moment, but as any viewer will tell you, the moment lassted all night long. Also, New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani chooses a new slogan for his city — “We Can Kick Your Cityʹs Ass.” Also on the show with Barrymoreʹs breasts, comedian Al Franken promoting “Stuart Saves His Family” which opens in theaters this day and goes on to gross the titanic sum of $911,310.
