EXACTLY! I so wish I could get in a time machine and travel back to a Union army camp and listen to the things his soldiers must have said about him, and the names they made up for him!

I have to admit I've seen approxiamately 12 seconds of Family Guy and didn't find it that amusing.
On The Simpsons, Hank Azaria based the voice of Chief Wiggum on Edward G. Robinson and bartender Moe Szylak is a bad Al Pacino impersonation.

Default You could smell 'em a mile off

Did you know?... that during the American Civil War, it was said quite truthfully that you could literally SMELL an approaching infantry corps or army on the wind before you ever saw them. The combined stench and funk of 50,000 unwashed uniforms and bodies(particularly backsides that had not seen soap for weeks) would catch in the wind and hit local communities in its path like a wave. Many civilians from that time describe in great detail the peculiar smell that a marching army and its unwashed asses gave off.

Did you know that when the kids from FAME in the film come bounding out of the school onto the streets of New York, they are not dancing to the song FAME, but Donna Summer's Hot Stuff. The songwriter revealed that the song hadn't been ready for the shoot and was added later to match the dancers hitting the beat to their dancing.

The same thing happens in the video for I Feel for You-Chaka Khan, where the dancers are moving to a different tune AND that rap bit at the beginning was also put on without Chaka Khan's knowledge but she loved it, so it stuck.

Default A Marketing campaign

Back in the 70's Wang ran a marketing campaign that was signed off by management.

The catch phrase of that campaign?

Wang .... Cares!

It took a couple of weeks before the campaign was pulled in the states.

As revealed in Porridge-Inside Out, the recent look at the whole series starring Ronnie Barker and Richard Beckinsale, the term 'scrote' as used by them was nicked from American prison slang by Ian La Frenais & Dick Clement - they just liked the word and used in sentences like "he's a miserable old scote!" Various ideas have been put forward for NERK(as in "you despicable nerk") a foolish, objectionable, or insignificant person and NAFF OFF! even used once by Princess Anne(now the Princess Royal) as a milder form of swearword f**k.

For screw(prisoner officer) see here

As I type this we learnt of the death yesterday of Sam Kelly-who was 'Bunny' Warren in Porridge and who featured in the said series above. This now leaves only Christopher Biggins(Lukewarm) and Tony Osoba(McLaren) of the original cast line up having lost Ken Jones('Horrible' Ives) last month too.

Not so,Peter Vaughn,Who played the effortlessly menacing "Genial Harry Grout" is still with Us,He did only appear in three episodes and the film but "Grouty" is still one of the most memorable characters.

This is a great one! I'll never forget the comedian Gallagher way back in the early 80s doing a bit on Wang, quite some time after it happened...

He said something to the effect of, what kind of genius would name a company "Wang"??? Didn't they think of what it would sound like on the trading floor of the stock market? - "Wang is UP, Wang is DOWN".. LOL!

Indeed Peter is still alive if looking very old and David Jason who played old lag Blanco BUT they weren't original characters and as you say only appeared a few times. The main cast that appeared more than twice were Sam, Tony, Christopher, Ronnie, Richard, Fulton, Brian & Jones have all sadly gone. One who played 'Harris' - Ronald Lacey(who was brilliant as the German in Raiders of the Lost Ark) I think was the first soon after Richard Beckinsale. I am sure there are still some of the other minor character still around although probably forgotten, not to mention those in the film version still alive.

Incidentally there was an American version called 'On the Rocks' but it didn't last very long but had virtually the same scripts used in Porridge.

Interestingly, "On the Rocks" gave us the term 'nerd'. It was originally spelled 'nurd' and was one of their faux swear words, but once "On the Rocks" went off the air, several of their faux words made their way onto other shows, with 'nurd', now spelled 'nerd', showing up on "Happy Days" as an insult thrown at the character of Potsie, commenting on his lack of masculine attributes.
