Well, like all statistics, you've gotta put this in perspective, the current USDA calculation of the average cost of raising a child to age 18 in America , NOT including college tuition & costs, is about $245,000. So as a perentage surcharge for mischief-generated expenses, it's not so significant.
And I wouldn't be surprised if the total bill for Lego and electronic toys & gizmos for my 2 nephews approaches the 15 grand mark by the time they're in high school...

Also, the C&H costs were calculated using prices on Amazon. I think you can get pretty good bargains on lots of stuff there.

@Caryn: Really? She came back to the tv show after the movie? fascinating! So there was someone else before Eartha, I had a feeling there was. Julie skipped the movie cause they wouldn't meet her price? Or prior obligations...? and Merriwether made to the tv show eventually, no?

I thought the movie was an unaired pilot with footage added to stretch it to feature length. That would explain why Newmar didn't appear in the film.

For shame
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/9/14 7:26am Caryn:

@BGZ: nah. The idea had been originally to make a movie to kick off the whole series, and a script was written before the series. But in the end, they decided against that idea, and decided to film the movie during the summer hiatus between seasons 1 and 2. I suspect mostly because 20th Century Fox didn't want to spend money on a movie before knowing how the series would be received.

  Thu. 10/9/14 7:35am P-90:

@BGZ: Oh, oops, Caryn just posted the answer... The movie was a quickie rushed into production the summer after the show was a hit, to cash in at the box office, and even more to propel merchandising revenues, which were turning out to be staggering. That's why the movie was constructed to introduce the Bat-Boat, Bat-Copter, Bat-Vibrating Relaxing Deep Massager, and all that crap, to provide things to use in/as/on models, Corgi toys, puzzles, games, pajamas, and all that jazz...big, big bucks, that kind of merch blitz was NOT de rigeur biz as usual yet, and it's easy to underestimate the hugeness of the Bat-Craze after the show arrived.
  Thu. 10/9/14 7:37am P-90:

@Caryn: Oh, yeah, dear Madge Blake! I think she turned down $15,000 to pose for Playboy, a considerable sum in those days

When the producers wanted to fire Blake (they were insane, I tells ya!), Adam West wouldn't let them. Blake baked him a cake as a thank you. A very Aunt Harriet thing to do.

Good morning. Meghan. Thanks for reminder of the holiday and the fact I don't have to move car. I can go back to bed, radio as they say in New England, from whence i've just arrived.

What's the pledge amount and procedure for getting an animated icon?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/9/14 7:44am Meghan:

I am not sure Dave......
  Thu. 10/9/14 7:47am P-90:

They were gonna FIRE Aunt Harriet? Something I did NOT know, that would've been a big, stupid mistake, a blasphemous miscarriage. Like they couldn't be patient with a little dementia when they had the Bat that Laid the Golden Egg in their laps? Classic Hollywood Bat-hubris. That's why I'll never go back (probably.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/9/14 7:48am Caryn:

@Dave B: I think it's either the 500 or 1,000 pledge that comes with the "account extras" like an animated avatar.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/9/14 7:48am Meghan:

Dave, I just asked Joe McGasko.... he said email him about it..... there isn't an amount (yet)

I need my animated GIF to twerk too.

Who here has entered their pet into the mascot ring? I'm curious!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/9/14 7:54am Meghan:

Oh, and I'd like to be at 25% in my goal as well...... hint hint.....

Meghan's "Milou" might be my #1 fave gif avatar so far
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/9/14 7:55am Meghan:

I just wish he wasn't so cropped.....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/9/14 7:56am Caryn:

Yeah, poor Milou's nose keep being cropped out. The sense of smell is vital to dogs!

Yeah!!

How long does the silent fundraiser last? I need to assess if I can scrounge up some money for a pledge in time.

You're right, his legs are perfect, but his head is a little out-of-frame... his "walk-cycle" is perfect though, it's the way you "see" him walking in your mind's eye when you read the original comics.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/9/14 8:03am Meghan:

The Silent fundraiser lasts until the end of the month
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/9/14 8:03am Caryn:

This reminds me, I need to scour Meghan's archives. Recently heard a new cover of an old proggy song called Brontosaurus, and started to wonder if Meghan had done a dinosaur-themed show. Must check the old playlist names after the show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/9/14 8:05am Caryn:

@Meghan: oh good. If nothing else, some the money I'm due at the end of the month might go towards a small pledge.
Avatar    Thu. 10/9/14 8:05am Dave B:

Thanks for the info Meghan and Joe. I'm tempted to enter Aibo my robot dog into the ring.

Unexpectedly literary lyrics. I was not expecting a Yeats reference.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/9/14 8:10am Caryn:

And seriously, I suspect "The Second Coming" is one of the most referenced poems in history. Pops up everywhere.
  Thu. 10/9/14 8:11am Wendy del Formaggio:

Haha! There it is!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/9/14 8:12am Meghan:

hahaha! Yep, the other one will pop up toward the end.....
  Thu. 10/9/14 8:13am Wendy del Formaggio:

Cool! I may have already left the radio building by then, but at least I caught this one. :-)

the lyrics on this look so conveniently drunk throughout the song

Interestingly enough, I can't remember the last time I was bored. I look forward to that feeling again!

apple crispito? yikes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/9/14 8:31am Caryn:

Dammit, Meghan, all I've had today is a carrot, and you bring up apple crispitos? Not that I have any idea what those are, but they sound damn good. I need to get some food in.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/9/14 8:31am Meghan:

oh it was amazing. think McDonald's apple pie filling wrapped in a tortilla and deep fried with powder sugar on top.
Avatar Thu. 10/9/14 8:33am glenn:

my glycemic index is in the ozone just thinking about it.
  Thu. 10/9/14 8:33am P-90:

mmmmm, crispitos...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/9/14 8:34am Caryn:

Oh lord, that sounds good. I was a tiny bit worried it was going to be a weird sugar-and-savoury combo, like those Miami hot dogs with pineapple jello, whipped cream and strawberry sauce on them.
  Thu. 10/9/14 8:36am P-90:

hot dogs with....wtf? ...ack
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/9/14 8:36am Meghan:

ewwwww no! Yeah no it is heaven... or was.

It ALWAYS comes back to food on this show. I want pizza.

i want bacon and eggs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/9/14 8:39am Meghan:

I used to work at Blanchards on Harvard Ave, we had so much fun back then. We had a deal with Big Burrito, where we'd get free food for exchange of 25 cent 6 packs

food bores me, or is it me boring food...
Avatar    Thu. 10/9/14 8:40am Sem Chumbo:

I once heard "bacon and eggs" used to define the difference between *involved* and *committed*. The chicken was involved, the pig was committed.

I want to do one of those giant burrito challenges at Mad Mex but probably shouldn't due to calories, diabetes and cholesterol.

Me too! Yeah, I was listening while I prepped my lunch for work today.
Thanks for a great show, M!

Moi moi, Meghan, from a house full of Finn-men and me! Too much holiday activity these past several days to tune in to FMU. But this list looks superb and will try to get to the archive before next week. See ya!

Yay, my time's my own again and listening now to your Bored archive. Got me banging the Gong with a heaping Lovin' Spoonful of star-clicks for Paul, Pete, Procol and Mr. Pop considering only a few P's & Q's. Great program, Meghan, and thanks!
