In 1893, Actor-comedian Harold Lloyd was born. He appeared in such early films as “For Heavenʹs Sake,” “Slapstick,” “Feet First,” “Safety Last,” “The Sin of Harold Diddlebock” and many others; a film sequence of Lloyd, dangling from the face of a clock high above the city streets (from “Safety Last”) is often used as a visual summation of his frantic slapstick pratfalls. He died on March 8, 1971.

In 1979, Johnny Carson was said to be leaving “The Tonight Show”. Newspapers around the country gave details about why the comedian and late-night host was said to be unhappy after 17 years on the show. Guess what? More moola, more vacation time and a four day week (not working Mondays) was enough for “The Great Carsoni” to hang around NBC for another twelve years…

In 1979, Them boys on “The Dukes of Hazzard” best burn rubber if theyʹre not gonna be framed by Boss Hogg for stealing a million dollars on its way to be burned by the Federal Reserve Bank.

Chester catches Danny in bed with Annie. Burt walks into an ambush. Jessica faces a firing squad. What will happen next? Confused? Well, you wonʹt be finding out on the next episode of “Soap.” ABC chooses to assassinate it — leaving all these cliffhangers hanging…but the firing squad business was resolved on another series…Benson was visited the following season by the ghost of Jessica who reassured him that she was in a better place now.

In 1986, In the Mr. Ed Theme Song Fiasco: an evangelist with nothing better to do, Jim Brown, said it included backward Satanic messages such as “The source is the Devil” and “Someone sung this song for Satan”.

In 1987, Musician Eddie Rabbitt performed at the White House Easter Egg roll in Washington, D.C. Get it? Eddie “the Easter” Rabbitt?

In 1991, Lorne Michaels proves that critics have been right about his show all along by booking a talent-free episode of “Saturday Night Live.” Ladies and gentlemen, presenting host Steven Seagal and musical guest Michael Bolton.

In 1997, “The X-Files” Fans patiently waiting for the sparks between Mulder and Scully to explode are finally rewarded in “Small Potatoes” — sort of. A loser named Eddie (Darin Morgan) uses his “striated muscle tissue” to bed women by morphing into the men they love — leading to a rash of babies born with tails. When Mulder uncovers the scam, Eddie knocks him out and assumes his shape. What follows pokes fun at every hallowed X-Files tradition, with Eddie, now played artfully by David Duchovny, slouching into Mulderʹs shoes and ridiculing everything from his first name (Fox) to his geeky friends. He even discovers a message from a phone-sex operator on Mulderʹs answering machine. The finest touch comes after Eddie (as Mulder) is busted while putting the moves on Scully over a bottle of wine. Eddie disappointedly confides to Mulder, “I was born a loser, but youʹre one by choice.” A superbly twisted, yet oddly unsettling, romp.
