Oh come on - you know! "The Dick Van Dyke Show?" He was the sweet but bumbling husband and his wife was Mary Tyler Moore and she'd also cry (at least once during the show) "Rooooobbbbb!"
Fine - here's a clip to refresh your memory - I'll wait. It's a long one though.....let me grab a glass of wine, wash my hair, paint my nails and you know, figure out world peace while I wait.
Now granted the only way I remember this show is from re-runs as I wasn't born until after this show went off the air. But I do remember him in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and (many years later) in Diagnosis Murder.
This man is hilarious and I've always enjoyed watching him.
Well (on to the point of this post) apparently there is a new children's album out which features the Red Hot Chili Peppers' drummer AND the 84 year old legend himself. Dick's role in this album is . . .
Rub your eyes and make sure you read that correctly. Yes, I said rapping. I've seen the clip; which I found hilarious and so, without further ado, I share. (and no, this one is no where near as long as the first; promise)
Now tell me this man isn't awesome!
Rock, er I mean, Rap On Dick!
I hope I still got it going on when I'm 84!
Oh, and by the way?? Yay me - I embedded video for the first time ever and on the first go round (I hope).
UPDATED: Just asked Man-Child if he knew who Dick Van Dyke was and he replied, "Is he a newscaster?" ::sigh:: Reminds me of the time he said, "You know, the guy who used to play John Wayne...." And THIS is why new programming shouldn't be allowed until children learn the Classics!
