ITEM! It’s Wednesday, and that must mean it’s time to answer some Sock It To Stan emailage! A few issues ago we posted some video of Jolly Jack Kirby’s cameo from The Incredible Hulk TV series in 1979, and MMMS member-in-good-standing Rab asked if anyone had a clip of Jack and Roz’s 1993 appearance in the Bob Newhart sitcom Bob. Since your Uncle Stanley was born way back when Moby Dick was still knee-high to a minnow, and I don’t even pretend to understand all of these Intrawebs and You-Toobs, I threw the challenge out to our readers to see which Merry Marvel Marcher could come up with Jack’s last TV appearance. Then I got this:

"Talk about results!  No sooner do I mention this at your blog than my pal Rand Hoppe of the Jack Kirby Museum makes it so! Admittedly, it's not a cameo in Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer... but on the plus side, it's not a cameo in Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer.


So mucho graciousness to Rascally Rab and the Jack Kirby Museum’s own Randy Randolph Hoppe for helping the rest of us Kirbyholics catch a glimpse of Jack and Roz as they appeared on the Bob episode “You Can’t Win” originally telecast on January 29, 1993. Any other Marvelites out there in the bellicose blogosphere who aspire to the rank of F.F.F. (Fearless Front Facer) and wonder how you get there from here, Rab and Randy have just shown yah how to do it, folks! And now without further ado... courtesy of Randolph Hoppe and The Jack Kirby Museum... Enjoy!
