Actor RODNEY ALLEN RIPPY to be Easter Wheels and Waves Special Guest…

That’s right folks, RODNEY ALLEN RIPPY will be our Special Guest for the EASTER WHEELS AND WAVES this Sunday, April 16th. Don’t miss it!

More about RODNEY here…

In the advertisements, Rippy was seen trying to wrap his mouth around the super-sized Jumbo Jack hamburger. The tag line “It’s too big to eat!” (pronounced “It’s too big-a-eat!”) became a catch-phrase. Another spot showed Rippy giggling while singing the song “Take Life a Little Easier,” which was released as a single by Bell Records in the fall of 1973 in the wake of the commercial’s popularity.[1]

The 45 (b/w “World of Love”) approached the Billboard magazine “Bubbling Under the Hot 100” chart in October 1973, peaking at #112. At the age of five, Rippy became the youngest person ever to make any Billboard music chart.[citation needed]

Rippy subsequently had guest roles in many popular television shows, including The Six Million Dollar Man, Marcus Welby, M.D., Police Story, and The Odd Couple (where Rodney played the owner of the building where Oscar and Felix lived). He also appeared frequently on talk shows such as The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson and Dinah’s Place with Dinah Shore. Rippy also had a co-starring role on the CBS Saturday morning children’s show The Harlem Globetrotters Popcorn Machine.[2]

Rodney made his big screen debut (uncredited, filmed before the Jack in the Box spots) in the Mel Brooks comedy Blazing Saddles in 1974. He portrayed a young Sheriff Bart aboard his parents’ buckboard wagon after a brutal Sioux nation attack. When the Sioux chief, portrayed by Brooks, allows the pioneers passage (for being darker than the Sioux are), Rippy says his only line, “Thank you.”[2] In a Peanuts newspaper comic strip dated July 3, 1974, Snoopy awakens from a dream in which he “had been invited out to dinner by Rodney Allen Rippy!”

Well, if you don’t (you must be living in a cave), then you’re about to see a commercial that traveled the world a hundred times over and back again. Also featured is the red-hot smokin’ 2014 CHEVY SS.

Great day of filming with my good friend Rodney and the 2014 Chevy Malibu SS. Still have more to shoot Sunday, but this episode should be hysterical. Did you know that Rodney was in The Six Million Dollar Man, a guest on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson as well as Dinah Shore? Plus, he had convos with George Burns and Sammy Davis, Jr! So cool…

Episode airs Monday!!

Fireball hangs with KDOCTV 56 and Hollywood Legend RODNEY ALLEN RIPPY… @RodneyARippy @LA56TV

Rodney

Do you remember that name? Rodney Allen Rippy has had a tremendous career, starting as a child actor in the Jack-In-The-Box commercials and finally settling at LA’s premiere TV Station KDOC Channel 56. Why am I there meeting with Rodney and Sales Manager Gordon Peppars? Well, let’s just say that we’re just hangin’ around doin’ absolutely nothing. And if you believe that, then I have a Bugatti I’m selling on Ebay for $12. But, as with all Fireball related projects, we’re havin’ fun.

If you haven’t seen KDOC’s programing, they are goin’ BIG, so check them out on your local cable network, most likely Channel 6. And stay tuned…
