Links to items discussed in this episode:

Ty Olsson as Sheriff Andy:

Ty Olsson was born on January 28, 1974 in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada as Tyler Olsson. He is an actor, known for X2: X-Men United (2003), War for the Planet of the Apes (2017) and Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011).

Mayberry:

By sheer coincidence that we mentioned Mayberry in this episode. While looking for a link for a post about Mayberry, I discovered:

The name Sheriff Andy is a reference to Sheriff Andy Taylor, the like-able and folksy town sheriff of Mayberry, from the Andy Griffith Show (1960-1968)

The Big….. Fig…… Newtaaaannnn:

Although not a fan of the Fig Newton, I was a big fan of this commercial and dance (especially “the tricky part”) when I was a kid… Now-a-days I just harass my son with it…

 

The Andy Griffith Show:

The Andy Griffith Show is an American situation comedy which aired on CBS from October 3, 1960, to April 1, 1968, with a total of 249 half-hour episodes spanning over eight seasons—159 in black and white and 90 in color. The series partially originated from an episode of The Danny Thomas Show.

Baskin-Robbins:

Baskin-Robbins is the world’s largest chain of ice cream specialty shops, providing guests with a wide array of ice cream flavors and delicious treats at more than 7,800 retail shops in more than 50 countries around the world. The brand was founded by two ice cream enthusiasts whose passion for ice cream led to the creation of many iconic ice cream flavors including Pralines ‘n Cream, Jamoca® Almond Fudge and Very Berry Strawberry.

Tensor Field:

In mathematics and physics, a tensor field assigns a tensor to each point of a mathematical space (typically a Euclidean space or manifold). Tensor fields are used in differential geometry, algebraic geometry, general relativity, in the analysis of stress and strain in materials, and in numerous applications in the physical sciences. As a tensor is a generalization of a scalar (a pure number representing a value, like length) and a vector (a geometrical arrow in space), a tensor field is a generalization of a scalar field or vector field that assigns, respectively, a scalar or vector to each point of space.

Catfishing:

The phenomenon of internet predators that fabricate online identities and entire social circles to trick people into emotional/romantic relationships (over a long period of time).

Hydrox:

Hydrox is the brand name for a creme-filled chocolate sandwich cookie manufactured by Leaf Brands. It debuted in 1908, and was manufactured by Sunshine Biscuits for over 90 years. The similar Oreo cookie, introduced in 1912, was inspired by the Hydrox. The Oreo eventually exceeded in popularity which resulted in the Hydrox being perceived as an imitator, although it was the original. Hydrox was largely discontinued in 1999 after Sunshine was acquired by Keebler, which was later acquired by Kellogg’s. In September 2015, the product was re-introduced by Leaf Brands. Compared to Oreos, Hydrox cookies have a less-sweet filling and a crunchier cookie shell that has been noted to become less soggy in milk.

Welcome Back Kotter – Television Series:

Welcome Back, Kotter is an American sitcom starring Gabe Kaplan as a sardonic high school teacher in charge of a racially and ethnically diverse remedial class called the “Sweathogs”. Recorded in front of a live studio audience, it originally aired on ABC from September 9, 1975, to May 17, 1979.
