"Isadora was the first bra burner..."

We're obsessed with classic television. We get especially entertained by the intros, which are invariably hilarious and 70s. Thusly, we decided, at 1:30 in the morning (4:30 in the morning for Emily--yes, we're insomniacs), to compile clips of our favorite intros to share on our blog. So here we are, staying awake at ungodly hours solely to bring to you the brilliance of classic television, uncut and commercial free. Dedication? I think so. Watch and love, darlings.

Fun Fact #1: I must add here that I, Lara, spent my childhood trying to replicate the nose wiggle. I also couldn't fathom why everyone kept referring to it as a nose trick, because if you watch Elizabeth Montgomery do it, it's really her upper lip that wiggles, not her nose. What can I say, I was a perceptive (and...strange) child.

Fun Fact #2: The opening shot is actually from Babes On Broadway (1941, Judy Garland & Mickey Rooney), right before the title song is sang at the end of the film. A COLLISION OF WORLDS.
Fun Fact #3: This song is Emily's ringtone and alarm.
Fun Fact #4: Much of this video is shot en route to Lara's former workplace, about 10 minutes from her house.

Fun Fact #5: This is Emily's favorite show in the history of... shows.
