Bingo, frogprince!

If I remember correctly, Vickie Dougan was an aspiring "starlet" back in the late 50s. As far as I've been able to tell, she never really went much of anywhere, and the only national publicity she ever got was when Lou Gottlieb wrote a song about her (I think it was Lou Gottlieb who wrote it, but I'm not sure) and the Limeliters recorded it.   

It's been many decades since I've heard the record, but if I'm remembering it rightly, according to Gottlieb's intro to the song, Vickie showed up at a Hollywood premier or other gala occasion wearing a dress that was cut so low in the back that "she had discovered an entirely new cleavage!"

As I recall, the title of the song was "Vickie, Turn Your Back on Me."

Beware of slight thread drift. Rapaire, regarding item 2 on your list, "Who or what was Mickey Dugan?" —anyone recall who Vickie Dougan was?   

Back to the subject, I can't recall offhand where Dagwood Bumstead worked, but his boss was a Mr. Dithers. Neighbor was Herb Woodley. The postman developed a severe flinch when he neared the Bumstead residence because Dagwood, who was always late for work, would burst through the front door like a missile out of a silo and they'd collide violently, scattering mail like confetti.

Prince Valiant hung out at Camelot a lot when he wasn't off on some sort of mission or quest. He originally came from Thule (his father was King Aguare [sp?]). The actual location of Thule wasn't specified, but one can presume that it was somewhere on the northwest coast of Norway. I remember seeing some of the first Prince Valiant strips in the late 1930s, belly-flopped on the living room floor with the Sunday funnies. A few years ago, there was an exhibit of great comic strip art at the Frye Museum in Seattle, and I had a chance to see some of Hal Foster's original strips—the original drawings. That man was an Artist!

Here's one for you:   Would you give this guy a lift?

"Come viss me to ze Casbah" – Pepe Lepew in a Looney Tunes cartoon.

By the way, the character Pepe Lepew was invented as a deliberate parody of the character Pepe Le Moko, played by Charles Boyer in the 1938 film "Algiers," but the line "Come with me to the Casbah" does NOT appear in the film.
