Tuesday's One Cup of Java Challenge: We had so many calls on our M*A*S*H question yesterday that I’ve decided to tackle another 70s sitcom for today’s One Cup question. Three’s Company aired on ABC from 1977 to 1984 and featured the adventures of roommates Jack, Chrissy and Janet. Your One Cup question this morning: what were Jack, Chrissy and Janet’s last names?
Answer: Jack Tripper, Chrissy Snow, and Janet Wood
Bonus Blog Trivia: The Three's Company theme song was sung by Ray Charles. No, not THAT Ray Charles, but the man who worked for a number of years with Perry Como and wrote the grade school choir staple "Fifty Nifty United States." He now bills himself as "the other Ray Charles" in honor of the more famous musician with that name, with whom we worked on several occassions. "The other Ray Charles" has been musical director for the Kennedy Center honors for the last 25 years. "The other Ray Charles" also wrote the ditty "We got letters, we got letters, we got stacks and stacks of letters" for Perry Como's television show; it is now used by David Letterman for his Viewer Mail segment.
