The most bizarre bit of trivia I have turned up in some time is about homeschooling. You've seen the lists; read the e~mails; downloaded the sites that list all the smart, famous, funny people who were homeschooled. Up~right citizens every last one.
What I bet you haven't seen is the trivia about the very first homeschooling t.v family. Have a think about all the t.v familes we've got to know ~ & yes, I know the Little House people were homeschoolers but they weren't the first on t.v.
It was the Addams Family. There was an episode that went to air on Sept., 4th 1964 with a traunt officer arriving to investigate why Wednesday & Pugsley had never been to school. Gomez is horrified at the thought of *regimented schooling * but he's a law abiding citizen so Wednesday & Pugsley are dutifully packed off to school .... until Morticia discovers what they are learning in Grimm's Fairy Tales!
Cracks me right up! It doesn't do to take ourselves too seriously!
