In 1376, (corrected info): according to legend, the German town of Hamelin, plagued with rats, bargained with a piper who promised to pipe the rats out of town and into the Weser River. The Pied Piper of Hamelin succeeded, but the town refused to pay him. The piper then piped the children out of town and into a hole in the hill. The children were never seen again. More recent historians suggest the event actually occurred in 1284, when young men of Hamelin simply left the city on colonizing adventures.

In 1925, Charlie Chaplinʹs classic comedy, “The Gold Rush,” premiered at Graumanʹs Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood, California.

In 1942, “Jingle, Jangle, Jingle” by Merry Macs entered the Top 40 chart.

In 1946, (some sources claim this date) Louis Reard introduced a scandalous new bathing suit to the media. The scanty garment wasnʹt more than for triangles of fabric and a few straps. The bikini reached its pinnacle in the Sixties. (Editorʹs note: Obviously, a great excuse to play Bryan Hylandʹs hit “Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polkadot Bikini.” It peaked at number one in August of 1960.) It would be 21 years before Pamela Anderson would be born, and another 23 before they got worldwide oxerexposure on “Baywatch!”

In 1949, Entertainer Fred Allen closed out his amazing radio career this night. Allen was making the transition to TV. His final guest was his old pal, Jack Benny. Allenʹs caustic wit didnʹt play well on TV and he found himself out of the medium in short order. Benny went on to become a television legend. (Fact checked: 1949 is the correct year.)

In 1954, R.C., “Point Of Order” Makes The Pop Chart by Stan Freberg; will peak at #15.

In 1955, NBC tries to build an audience for “Do It Yourself,” a hybrid of a sitcom and “This Old House,” with hosts Dave Willock and Cliff Arquette (aka Charley Weaver). Sorry, but the viewers just werenʹt ready for “Home Improvement” just yet, Pamela Anderson wouldnʹt be born for another twelve years!

In 1956, Larry Blyden and Nita Talbot star in the CBS romantic comedy “Joe and Mabel.” Also in the cast: Norman (Mr. Roper) Fell.

In 1959, The Donald Duck film, “Donald in Mathmagic Land” is released.

In 1965, “I Want Candy” by the Strange brothers (three Jewish guys from New York City — Bob Feldman, Jerry Goldstein and Richard Gottehrer — passing themselves off as Australian aborigines, Miles, Niles and Giles) cracks Billboardʹs Hot 100 (goes to number 11).

In 1981, Bill Murrayʹs seventh feature film, “Stripes,” opens in theaters. Among the late-night friends joining him are John Candy, Joe Flaherty, and Dave Thomas.

In 1981, We take you now to Mountain Home, Idaho and a supermarket frequented by Virginia Campbell. On this day, Mrs. Campbell took her clipped coupons and rebates and bought some groceries. A lot of them. Checkers totaled some $24,460 worth, in fact! How much did Campbell end up paying with all of those coupons and rebates? Only 67 cents! Reports indicated that she would have received a REFUND of $12.97, but she decided to get film and flashbulbs after the bill was totaled.

In 1982, “Barbara Mandrell And The Mandrell Sisters” makes its final prime-time appearance as a regular series with guests Dolly Parton and John Schneider. They returned in late 1986 with a special.

In 1985, Youʹve heard of players, managers and owners being ejected from baseball games, right? But have you ever heard of an organist being given the heave ho? It happened on this day at Jack Russell Stadium in Clearwater, Florida (the home of the Philadelphia Phillies during spring training. A Class A League team uses the stadium the rest of the season). Wilbur Snapp played “Three Blind Mice” following a call by umpire Keith OʹConnor. The umpire was not amused, and saw to it that Mr. Snapp was sent to the showers.

In 1987, “Just the facts, maʹam. Thank you.” The movie, “Dragnet”, starring Dan Aykroyd in the Jack Webb role of Sergeant Joe Friday; and Tom Hanks in the Harry Morgan role of detective Stribeck, opened around the country on this day. The movie became the first Hollywood film to feature a “condom-conscious” bedroom scene…just right for the social mores of the '80s. “Dragnet” was a smash theatrical hit, as it had been on radio and TV in the 1940s and '50s. “This is the city…”

In 1993, “Late Night with David Letterman” aired its final new episode on NBC (12:30 a.m. ET/PT, 11:30 p.m. June 25 CT/MT)…see June 25's entry for more. (due to time zone quirks, it is early June 26 Eastern and Pacific and late June 25 Central and Mountain time zones.)

In 1997, The first Harry Potter novel, “Harry Potter and the Philosopherʹs Stone” by J.K. Rowling (ROHLʹ-ing), was published in the United Kingdom (it was later released in the United States under the title “Harry Potter and the Sorcererʹs Stone”).

In 1998, The movie “Doctor Dolittle” starring Eddie Murphy opened in movie theaters in the U.S.A.

In 1998, Urkelʹs cousin Myrtle (aka Jaleel White in drag) finally stops chasing Eddie after eight years of unrequited sitcom lust, and a final extreme makeover on “Family Matters.”

In 1999, On the cover of TV Guide: “Pamela Anderson Lee of V.I.P.”

In 2000, “Star Wars: Episode II” Starts Shooting! A not-so long time ago in a galaxy nearer than you think (Australia), head Jedi George Lucas and his mates officially kicked off principal photography of the second prequel. The shooting, taking place at Fox Studios in Sydney, started three years to the day after production began on Episode I--The Phantom Menace. The then-untitled Episode II, the first installment in the Star Wars saga to go all-digital, is scheduled to wrap up in August in Australia before moving on to a month of shooting on location in Italy and Tunisia.

In 2003, TNN (which was going to be Spike TV by then until some guy named Lee blocked Viacom from doing so) premiered the return of “Ren and Stimpy” in more adult adventures so disgusting that I wonʹt repeat it here. Also equally as inane are the concepts of “Gary the Rat” which gets in a couple of swear words, and from the sublime to the ridiculous, Pamela Anderson supplies the voice of the star of “Stripperella” as she battles a villian who fattens superheroes. I got a better idea. Have Stripperlla battle greedy cable companies who fatten the wallets of its CEOs and stockholders. That will give a superhero a real purpose!

In 2016, “Match Game” returned to be airing new episodes on ABC.
