Video of the Week: “The Velvet Jungle”

Sorry I missed the last couple days – still disorganized after our California adventure. But I finally got it together enough to post our Video of the Week, and it’s a good one. It’s part one of “The Velvet Jungle,” the Starsky and Hutch episode that first aired on March 5, 1977. It contains the entirety of Timothy’s priceless performance as Danny, the unfortunately racist creator of “super pancakes.”

He really puts himself into his work, doesn’t he? Heh. This episode was directed by Earl Bellamy, who also directed Tim the same year in Speedtrap. He and Tim shared a birthday – March 11. He directed gobs and gobs of television from the 1950s through the 1980s.
