TV Land Lists 100 Greatest Catchphrases

TV Land Lists 100 Greatest Catchphrases

Sometimes it takes only a word, or just a few, to become immortalized in television history.

The TV Land cable network has compiled a list of the 100 greatest catchphrases in TV, from the serious — Walter Cronkite's nightly signoff "And that's the way it is" — to the silly: "We are two wild and crazy guys!"

The network will air a countdown special, "The 100 Greatest TV Quotes & Catch Phrases," over five days starting Dec. 11.

"We have found that television is such a huge part of baby boomers' DNA that it makes sense that so much of America's pop culture jargon has come from TV," said Larry Jones, TV Land president.

The greatest number of moments, 26, come from the 1970s. TV Land identified nine moments from this decade. Ten are from commercials, and 28 from comedies, including six from "Saturday Night Live."

In alphabetical order, TV Land's list:

Supposedly, Ed Sullivan never said 'We've got a really big show'-that line was created and used by an impersonator of him. He has said, 'We've got a great show here tonight' with variations.

Thats awesome! I would never have expected that to make it onto a list like this.
Then again, I think allot of that would fall into more of a pop slogan area and not catch phrase. Still good though.

I just thought of the one that most people know but it isn't a show but a vanity production plate at the end of the show.

"Sit Ubu Sit. Good Dog" - seen after credits of Family Ties

I've also liked...

"Good Night Mr. Walters" - seen after credits of Taxi

I'm not sure how to read this list, but to me some of the phrases (I'm not near TV-experienced enough to recall even half of them) make me remember the tone and voice of the one who said it.

In that light I'd like to add the following to this list:

- "Yes, Michael" - (KITT, "Knightrider")
- "Transform and roll out!" - (Optimus Prime, "Transformers")

I thought I had some more, but they were all from movies.

Btw, when I was reading through the list and got to "Hey, hey, hey" I immediately thought of the Flinstones, did anybody else have that?

"Mama mia. Thats-a spicy-a meat-a ball-a."
"Cut that jibba jabba"
"Engage!"
"Get your pets spayed or neutered."
"Great Ceaser's ghost!"

Don't worry because I erased the one that I wanted to keep and kept the one on the list...

"Cheebugah, cheebugah, cheep, cheep, no coke, Pepsi."

Great Ceasar's Ghost is from the editor of the Daily Planet, can't remember his name, but here's my Decoder ring just in case.
