In 1921, Miniature newspaper published (Brighton Gazette 10 x 13 cm).

In 1925, 05 x 05 = 25

In 1930, The first Mickey Mouse comic strip drawn and inked by Floyd Gottfredson is published.

In 1934, “Woman Haters”, Columbiaʹs first of 190 “Three Stooges” comedies running through 1959, was released.

In 1938, Wayne LeMaster was the losing pitcher for the Philadelphia Phillies. He completed…no…at-bats. He started the game, pitched three times, all balls, to Stan Hack, the first batter. LeMaster developed arm trouble and left the game. Hack walked and scored the first run to give the Cubs a lead they never relinquished. The walk, and therefore the loss, was charged to LeMaster. In the sixth inning, Harold Kelleher set a National League record as the pitcher who faced the most batters in one inning. Sixteen batters led to 12 runs. The Cubs beat the Phillies, 21-2.

In 1941, According to the Tonight Show, commercial television was introduced; the next day, someone said “thereʹs nothing on!”

In 1952, “I Love Lucy” Fittingly, the show is pure Lucy — sidekick Ethel (Vivian Vance) doesnʹt even have a cameo. Try to say it out loud: Vitameatavegamin. Thatʹs the name of the product Lucy is hawking for a TVshow Ricky is hosting. In the classic “Lucy Does a TV Commercial,” Ballʹs talent for physical comedy is at its most vibrant and resourceful. Using her usual treachery to get the job, Lucy begins to run through her spot for the director (Ross Elliot). As the Vitameatavegamin Girl on a TV variety show, Lucy Ricardo is supposed to “spoon her way to health,” but instead gets totally snockered on the health elixir sheʹs promoting. The rest of the commercial doesnʹt exactly dance off the tongue, either: “Do you poop out at parties? Are you unpopular?” Now imagine saying all that while drunk. Because in addition to containing vitamins and nutrients, Vitameatavegamin packs a 46-proof punch. Still, Lucy, hapless, hopeless Lucy, nails the commercial — until she tastes the product. The revolted face she makes is priceless (made only more so by the line she has to deliver: “So tasty, too! Just like candy!”). Now the director wants her to try it again. Swig. Once more. Swig. The hiccups start; Lucy gets pie-eyed. By the fifth run-through, she has forgotten her lines. In the sixth the malaprops flow (“Do you pop out at parties? Are you unpoopular?”), as does the mangling of the product name (“Mita-meata-megamin”; “Mita-vata-meaty-mac”). After mangling the productʹs name in every imaginable way, Lucy finally resorts to calling it “this stuff.” By any name, this heady concoction continues to make “happy, peppy people” of us all. Lucy is totally smashed. But oddly enough, the nasty elixir is now delicious. There are countless reasons to love Lucy, televisionʹs greatest physical comic, but none greater than this. From the first spoonful she squeamishly swallows to her early, slightly sloshed queries — “Do you pop out at parties? Are you unpoopular?” — to her final drunken swig right out of the “bittle lottle,” Ball builds the mirth to a riotous climax.
