Do You Remember… Sidekicks

Jun 26, 2014

Since we’re doing lists this week – how about a list of Sidekicks.

 

Sidekick: A close companion who is generally regarded as subordinate to the one he accompanies.

 

Xena and Gabrielle

Xena and Gabrielle
I was a big fan of Xena: Warrior Princess.  Not so much Gabrielle.  My favorite villain was Callisto

 

Batman and Robin
batman and robin
I remember watching Batman.  It came on at 6:30 PM.  Can’t remember which day of the week.

 

Gumby and Pokey

Of course, I had a Gumby and Pokey toy.  Played with it until the copper wire broke through Gumby’s skin.  LOL

 

Here’s a few more Sidekicks to get your started:

 

  • Checkers and Pogo
  • Yogi Bear and Booboo
  • Princess Knight and Choppy
  • Spinner and Paddlefoot

 

And go ahead and list your memories of the Master/Sidekick.  Again, don’t worry about repeating what someone else might have previously posted.

    Re: “Atomic Drop”

    I was never really that much into pro wrestling, but that’s not to say that I was unfamiliar with it. When the whole pro wrestling subject was mentioned here, my first thought was, “Atomic Drop”, but I wasn’t really confident that I recalled the name correctly. So, I didn’t say anything. 😉 LOL

    So, thank you for “Atomic Drop”. And, yes – definitely the Atomic Drop!! 🙂

    Okay, those wrestling days were the really good ol’ days indeed. Missed the first wave, but certainly rode the swells in the aftermath. Here’s a link (below) of some of the bigger names from yesteryear. Scary, I recognize most of ’em. And they keep knocking it that pro wrestling was not real. Harumph! I spock Beauregard, Handsome Johnny, Rippah Collins, Bull Iaukea, Mr. Fuji, and even Missing Link. Some of my wave rides also included the national circuit. I see the Destroyer, but where’s the Crusher? NCAA champion Bob Backlund would often wage war with Iron Sheik and the Dory, Terry and the whole Funk clan. I liked the 600 lbs. wrestlers. Cannot forget the likes of Haystack Calhoun and Man Mountain Mike. Over 1,200 lbs. of jello in the ring! But the ones who got my juices going was Superstar Billy Graham and Dusty Rhodes. Their battles were epic. Never had a chance to see roller derby or wrestling in the old Civic, HIC or Block Arena. But went to modern day wrestling once at the Blaisdell. Not bad and it was sold out. Lost my voice afterwards, if not my mind first. But thank goodness for television wrestling way back then.

    One more. If you were a big-time wrestling fan, why did Ed Francis have a raspy voice? Because he was full of gulla-gulla? Nope, that’s not it. A fan in the audience got so into it, he took a ball-point pen and actually stabbed Ed Francis in the throat when he was outside the ring and on the pavement. Talk about a hazardous work environment!

    I remember how Chief Billy Whitewolf used to tell the audience with his locker room interview. “And this is how I trained. I hold a mouthful of water and breathe through my nose when I’m running the slopes of Diamond Head” I ran some in my younger days. Now, that’s hard to do. I forgot who burned his authentic tribal feathered headband during one of the wrestler’s antics. But those sure looked like real tears to me that Whitewolf was crying. Or when Gentlemen Ed Francis had tears streaming down his face. John Tolas broke Ed’s son Russ Francis’ (yes, the 49ers) ribs during a match. Brother Billy Francis wrote to dad saying he would avenge what The Golden Greek (Tolas) did to his brother. Epic, totally epic. We used to eat it up totally! 😆

    One more on wrestling. Can’t help it. Used to idolize that stuff. That’s why I tell the kids, “If anybody makes trouble to you, tell ’em my father used to watch wrestling. All the time, anytime, and every time. My father can beat your father’s a$$ any day.” Really. They have the green light to say that. The troublemaker’s miseries begin at home. I’m so ready to put on the ‘sleeper-hold’ to see if it really works. Blears, in his locker room interviews said you are cutting circulation off from the carotid artery in the neck. Yup, I believe in that stuff. 😆

    Not exactly sidekicks, but here’s a pair that got seared into my 14 year old mind. Sadly, depending on how you look at it, you can see a mole on Ripper’s head, a first indication of the skin cancer–from all that Hawaiian sun–which eventually took him.

    Was watching Don Muraco on Leahy and Leahy not too long ago. You would think these big thugs were all muscles and no brains. Not the Magnificent Muraco. Think he mentioned he graduated from one of those private schools in Makiki. He was witty, articulate, telling a good story, and so interesting. He even got old man Leahy to talk about the good old days of wrestling. Muraco said he was the original “Rock” before the poster-boy Dwayne Johnson took on that schtick. But I wonder what U.H. coach Mac has to say about the Rock of his football playing days for the Miami Hurricanes? Mac was the defensive coordinator for the Hurricanes back then.

    “Handsome” Johnny Barend was one of the most athletic and exciting wrestlers to appear in Hawaii. He first wrestled in Hawaii in 1955 and returned 9 years later in 1964 to wrestle for Ed Francis. Johnny would enter the ring wearing a black top hat, black cape, sunglasses and carrying a cane. During his locker room interviews, he would read his “fractured fairy tales” while wearing sunglasses and smoking a cigar. At one point, his entrance music was “The Batman Theme” and he would call his locker room the “Bat Cave”. He wrestled in all kinds of matches: Indian Death Matches, Steel Cage Matches, Scicilian Stretcher Death Matches, Battle Royals etc. When he would start to beat up on his opponents, the fans would cheer him on by yelling “Geev Um” (Give It To Him).
    In September of 1967, Johnny married local girl Anita Lum in the ring at the Blaisdell Arena in front of a sold out crowd before the main event. In 1972, he retired from wrestling after being injured in a match here on Oahu. Along with Curtis “The Bull” Iaukea, Ripper Collins, Jim Hady, The Masked Executioner, The Missing LInk, Lord “Tally Ho” Blears and many others, Johnny was a part of the “Golden Age Of Wrestling” in Hawaii.

    Curtis “the bull” Iaukea was one crazy buggah. I still remember on one of the wrestling locker room interviews, he wanted to show how tough his head was with scar tissues accumulated over the years. “Whap”, he breaks a bottle of beer on his forehead. Lord and Ed was amazed, and it was kind of freaky to see on TV.

    @Seawalker – Drunkard Magazine. Too much .…

    “In addition to their wrist-raising abilities, we deify great drinkers because they indulge their lust for intoxication while simultaneously operating at the peak of their powers in whatever their chosen profession. In other words, great drunks are also great writers, actors, athletes, scientists, statesmen, philosophers, and so on.”
