Happy birthday to one of the Seventies' most popular TV stars and a first-ballot member of the Hall of Adorable, Karen Valentine. She was big on Room 222 and The Hollywood Squares and also starred in her share of TV movies. Just watch this clip if you want a sense of her appeal:
Oh, how I wish Room 222 were on Hulu right now!
In this speech, she gives shout-outs to James L. Brooks, who went on to The Mary Tyler Moore Show and Taxi (among many others) and Gene Reynolds, who went on to MASH (among others). Both teamed up again for Lou Grant. You can go to our archives for our episodes on all those series, and maybe someday we will talk about Room 222!
