I don't know what the sunday stumper is, but if it means we're supposed to try to identify the photos, then it's Donnie and Marie Osmond.

I thought it was that group that sang "Muskrat Love" or even possibly Shields and Yarnell back when they performed in a Moby Grape tribute band.

The Captain and Tenille. They had their own TV show at one time (as did Tom Jones, and Donny and Marie Osmond). Then again, so did Pink Lady and Jeff, so I guess it goes to prove nothing. Prize to the first person to identify Pink Lady (no fair Googling).

Prize to the first person to identify Pink Lady (no fair Googling)  I used to buy wholesale clothing from Jackie Goldberg "The Pink Lady" based out of LA. You never addressed Sheilds and Yarnell or the amazing popularity of Moby Grape tribute bands in the 70's.   :D
I don't know why I cannot quote this properly.

I would have addressed Shields and Yarnell, but it's hard to mime on an internet forum like this one. I will say that to the best of my knowledge they were the first, last, and only mime group :-X to headline their own television series, but unlike the previously-mentioned acts, they weren't pop musicians who made the transition to headlining their own TV series, so I'm not sure how they got lumped in with the others.

PINK LADY, by the way, was a Japanese pop duo (similar to The Peanuts, who preceded them in the early 1960s by starring as the the Alienas, or more familiarly, the "Twin Fairies" in the 1961 Toho Films kaiju eiga, MOTHRA). Pink Lady (who spoke no English) were given their own television series on NBC in 1979, co-starring alongside second-string comedian Jeff Altman. The show was infamously pulled from NBC's lineup after only airing six episodes.

Moby Grape may be of interest to anyone into late 60's or early 70's psychedic rock.  Skip Spence (Jefferson Airplane) was a member. They were apparently influential at the time.  The Pink Lady I spoke of can be found at www.pinkladyhollywood.com.  She's pretty cool to my thinking.  I never heard of the Pink Lady tv series.  Whether it was good or not I'm guessing it was too "ethnic" for middle American tastes.

And yeah, I can't think of any other mime group(or person) that had their own show in tbe 70's.  Wasn't everyone high or sloshed on Blue Nun or that Riunite "on ice" Italian wine during that decade anyway?


I'm still having problems "quoting" on this thread.  What the heck?   :buck2:

Fair enough. I thought they were pretty obscure today, hopefully enough to be a "stumper". But on the other foot, I've never heard of your Pink Lady, either. What's her claim to celebrity, again? Motivational speaking, or is that more of a sideline?

It was some type of puzzle or riddle that appeared in a Sunday paper somewhere?  Would you elaborate somewhat?  That info may help us to answer your original question.
