    What, no Night Court?

    #52 1 year ago
    Quoted from mrpilkington:

    A list without Alf is an incomplete list. [quoted image]

    I'd consider buying an ALF pin. "No problem!"

    With the popularity of "cat" themes on the internet these days, it may even do well "HA! * HA!"

    I'm the Freddy, but had to get my pic with him when I saw him (he had a cat hanging from his backpack):

    Let’s see what’s to the left of alf there! Far right of pic looks awfully deserving of a pin title.

    There is one glaring omission from your list:

    Harry and the Hendersons

    Quoted from Hop-Pac:

    The Dukes started in 1979. But ran til 1985. Only 1 year in the 70s. 6 in the 80s. I'd say it was an 80s show

    Sure, but who are these clowns?

    Wow I just watched a whole bunch of Small Wonder and it has to be the worst show ever made. I meam it was great don;t get me wrong, but damn the budget is like $150 an episode.

    #67 1 year ago

    Odin my suggestions in the lead

    #68 1 year ago
    Quoted from Dr_Smith:

    Cop Rock was/is officially the worst show ever made.

    Quoted from Jackontherocks:

    Odin my suggestions in the lead

    Yeah, Dukes is in the lead.

    But how would that ever fly on pinside or the pinball world as it is now with a big old Confederate flag on top of the General Lee?

    #70 1 year ago

    This would be a super niche theme but I would love to see a Force Five pin.

    How would it fly on Pinside? Ummm...a lot better than if you tried to take it off.

    #72 1 year ago

    Pinside officially banned posting any pics of the Confederate flag or using it as an avatar some time ago, I believe.

    Throw that one in there with the Oktobefest monkey and the song "Baby, It's Cold Outside" .

    #73 1 year ago

    It could always become Smokey And The Bandit or Cannonball Run instead.

    #74 1 year ago
    Quoted from jorro:

    Harry and the Hendersons

    For the TV series, that would actually be the 90s.

    Remember this dude on that show? Chance Boyer, one of my surf buddies from that same time period.

    I thought someone was making a custom pin of this awhile back or had ideas.

    Seriously?

    #77 1 year ago

    You could easily reskin Dukes of Hazard into Knight Rider and A Team. This is a no brainer!

    Just ignore the peanut.

    #79 1 year ago

    I can't find it now, but I'm sure I read it before.

    However, a flag is usually made of cloth and waves in the wind so a paint job on a car may not apply.

    That jump was a world record jump at the time!!
    Mr. Stern I already have a blank check made out to you. As long as it is from the Original Dukes of Hazzard TV show, NOT the shitty movie remakes

    #82 1 year ago

    The A-Team, Dukes, or Miami Vice would all be awesome! I think a major jump ramp ala Robocop or Iron Maiden would be killer on Dukes though...All three would require the original theme songs for sure!!!
