@70sman4ever ====tokin up an kickin back– ahhh the 70′s
GREAT SCENE WHEN SOME GUYS ARE PLAYING FOOTBALL,GOOD LESSONS FOR YANKS!
@YaoiHuntressEarth I agree with you, but I doubt it will happen. This is Amerikkka. How many good/any shows do we have with latinos and blacks being positive with each other? TV sucks now. The last latino/black show was NY Undercover and you know what happened to that show.
I used to love this show when it first aired. I was really young then but I remember my mom kept saying that I looked liked the baby at the end when I was his age. This really brings back good memories. I was young but shocked when I heard what happened to Freddie. Such a loss.
I use to love this show. Thank you for the memories of a talent lost to young.
I loved this show, lol!
T.V.’s “Chico & the Man” trivia: Originally Freddie Prinze was cast to play the role of “Della.” Producer James Komack, of course, eventually awarded the part to the behemoth Della Reese who had invented Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups in the autumn of 1967 during her convalescence from a trampoline accident.
@lovell123456789 no it wasn’t
It could be interesting to see a modern day version of the show set in Arizona given the racial tensions (especially with immigration).
I Am 25 Years Old And I Have This Show On DVD…. Ahhh To See It WAY Back In The 70′s On TV Would Be AMAZING!!!!
@70sman4ever THE 70S WAS THE BEST DECADE FOR MUSIC,CULTURE,EVERYTHING!!! REAL TALK!!!
I don’t know what made me think of looking for this clip today, but I did. I have not seen this in over 30 years but knew most of the words. I even remember that countdown at the beginning. What great memories, but day too that Prinze did what he did. I was only 10 or so at the time and really did not understand the how and why. I just rememver it as being very sad.
A dear friend told me tonight that I seemed eerily reminiscent of Freddie Prinze in the my photos as far as nineteen seventies stuff goes. Of course, I just pray things will be better for Chico and the Man. This is the evening prayer. …
@tiffanywlls looks like going down north every summer lol
This was one of the all time great SITCOMS… They yanked it when after Freddie Prinze committed suicide and for many years never re-aired it… yet people remember it because it was THAT good !
