1. “Camp Cucamonga” had the greatest TV all-star cast of 1990.
Camp Cucamonga is a made-for-television movie that aired on NBC on September 23, 1990. While it was a standard rethread of earlier summer camp movies like Poison Ivy (the Michael J. Fox one, not the Drew Barrymore movie), it can best remembered for a couple of things.
1. Its all-star cast of late ‘80s/early ‘90s TV stars.
2. Cheesy rap videos.
2. Let’s take a closer look at this amazing cast:
3. Chad Allen (“My Two Dads”) & Candace Cameron (“Full House”)
4. Sherman Hemsley (“The Jeffersons”) & John Ratzenberger (“Cheers”)
5. Jennifer Aniston (pre-“Friends”)
6. Jaleel White (“Family Matters”)
7. Danica McKellar & Josh Saviano (both of “The Wonder Years”)
8. Brian Robbins (“Head of the Class”)
9. Breckin Meyer (pre-“Clueless”)
10. And in his comedy acting debut, G. Gordon Liddy (he organized and directed the Watergate burglaries of the Democratic National Committee headquarters in 1972).
11. And we’ll never forget the camp rap song:
- Inside WikiLeaks: A former employee shares what he learned about Julian Assange (including his beef with Hillary Clinton).
- One week into the fight to take back Mosul, expectations for quick success have clashed with the reality of a bloody struggle ahead.
- Less than 24 hours after AT&T announced an $85 billion deal to buy Time Warner, politicians are expressing skepticism and opposition.
- An NFL player paid tribute to Harambe, the gorilla who died at a Cincinnati zoo, on his cleats.
