TV Land is just one of many Cable Television stations that show Classic Black and White “Olde Timey” television shows like; Dobie Gillis, “I love Lucy” and Gunsmoke (Although I do admit that TV Land has cut back on its classics and has since decided that 80’s/90’s TV is classic enough for them).

One of my favorite TV shows from back in the day however, was the Patty Duke Show. What was it about? Well, the theme song pretty much sums it up.

Meet Cathy, who’s lived most everywhere,
From Zanzibar to Barclay Square.
But Patty’s only seen the sight.
A girl can see from Brooklyn Heights.
What a crazy pair!

But they’re cousins,
Identical cousins all the way.
One pair of matching bookends,
Different as night and day.

Where Cathy adores a minuet,
The Ballet Russes, and crepe Suzette,
Our Patty loves to rock and roll,
A hot dog makes her lose control!
What a wild duet!

Still, they’re cousins,
Identical cousins and you’ll find,
They laugh alike, they walk alike,
At times they even talk alike!

You can lose your mind,
When cousins are two of a kind.

While the show might have been great, and the theme song very catchy. One part of that theme song leaves me baffled!

“Our Patty loves to rock and roll, A hot dog makes her lose control!”

I have to ask myself, why would a hot dog make anyone lose control? It’s just a hod dog! It’s not even a chilli-Slaw dog with cheese and onions! Just a basic Hot Dog.

Unless of course that “Hot Dog” is just an innuendo? Perhaps it means something a little more Risque? Let’s not forget that this show was on the air from 1963 to 1966, so what might not be Risque to you today, very well could have to that era of television viewers.
