I've been having trouble finding things on Wikipedia the last few weeks; I think they've made some major changes....and I don't like them!

Try this: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0077066/

Scroll down below the cast list for a brief storyline.

sk8eycat, the Quark (TV series) wikipedia link was a dud. Glad somebody else enjoyed it.

That ad I post earlier was from 1893.

Ruth and Stephen: I LOVED "Quark"!  It didn't last very long...not even a full season...but it was cleverly, wickedly funny.  I think that was about the time that the average couch potato had to have everything spelled out for him/her in capital letters.  They just didn't get subtle humor.

Same thing happened at about the same time to a comedy about Robin Hood, I think.  "When Things Were Rotten"  That was  produced by Mel Brooks.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/When_Things_Were_Rotten

Both Mel Brooks and Buck Henry were creators/writers on "Get Smart."

Ruth that Klingon half pecan LOL is really funny.

Last I looked, that brand of soap is still around today. I've seen it in the store as "Kirk's Castile Soap." No extraterrestrial claims, but it is supposed to be a very pure, basic soap without weird additives.

Ruth, that long ago series you're thinking of was called "Quark," created by Buck Henry and starring Richard Benjamin. Very funny.

No date on that ad, Bill. I was curious.

I liked the part about the plants seducing his wife, sk8eycat! It reminds me of my favorite episode of a long ago short lived series about an intergalactic garbage scow, where the sentient plant had conjugal relations with a female character.

I found this on Wkipedia. I wonder in Gene Roddenberry knew of this product.
