Plaid Stallions 18th Birthday

Plaid Stallions 18th Birthday

It’s Plaid Stallions’ birthday, and now I can ship it off to college or the army I guess.

Starting this site on a lazy Saturday while my baby daughter napped was more important than I’d ever realized. I had no idea that when I started posting old catalogue photos online. Starting Plaid Stallions would open such an incredible door that would have me make new friends, create podcasts, go back to college, write books and magazines, and even make action figures based on crazy concepts.

None of this would have happened if I had just decided to watch TV, so it ranks as one of the better decisions I’ve ever made.

Initially, I was going to give PS “Five years tops,” but I just kept going thanks to all the positive people I encountered on this journey.

That support and kindness kept me going, and I always found it here during good times and bad; this has been an amazing ride.

So I would love to give out presents on our birthday because I already got mine from you, and so on with the contest!


Plaid Stallions 18th Birthday Contest- Stretch Monster Inflatable


Ten participants will receive an Infl8able Monster in its limited edition packaging.  These are the same figures that come with issue 12 of Toy-Ventures Magazine, but in a special “Rack Toy” package.

        Congrats on the milestone Brian! Your content is such a positive ray of light in the sea of negativity that is social media and YouTube.

        John Ritter has to be my favourite guest. It seemed like an event when he showed up. Not to mention how excited my dad would be when he knew John was going to be on the show.

        Cheers! Here’s to fifteen more!

    • Dave Anderson on April 30, 2024

    • William Rodriguez on April 30, 2024

      My fave guest star episode was when Julie Newmar appeared and “trapped” Don Knotts into a relationship because she wanted someone to be her child’s father. She was a childhood crush on Batman. Teenaged me loved her on the love boat. Lol

    • Jameson Lee on April 30, 2024

      Bill Bixby or Jim Backus

  • Joe H on April 30, 2024

    Charo caused stirrings in my utility belt when she guested on Love Boat

  • Rene Lafargue on April 30, 2024

    Hell yes! Congrats on the longevity!

    Love boat? Arte Johnson!!!

    • Andrew McLardy on April 30, 2024

      My favourite Love Boat guest was Florence Henderson because she always seemed to be aboard the ship and no one deserved a vacation more than America’s Mom!

  • Michael Karnowka on April 30, 2024

    Paul Williams. Not only did he come up with the lyrics to the theme song, but he faced the ages old problem of having to marry someone by the end of the episode/cruise or lose inheriting the family fortune as spelled out in the terms of the will. How many times has this happened to someone you know if not yourself? How many fortunes have been lost by those without access to the Love Boat’s magic? Williams also shuffles around like a beheaded chicken, and I like to think this is a hold over from his experience on the Apes film. He also sports the trademark Paul Williams eyeglasses, always a plus. Thank you for all you do and continued success.

  • Brandon Hardy on April 30, 2024

    How can you even choose one? Literally you had pop culture icons popping up from A-Team (Dirk Benedict), Hulk (Bill Bixby), Dukes of Hazzard (Catherine Bach), Halloween (Jamie Lee Curtis), Exorcist (Linda Blair) & more. Didn’t appreciate just how significant the guest list was till I was an adult.

    • Mark James on May 1, 2024

      Did I blink and miss Little Richard as a guest on Love Boat?? If he wasn’t a guest, then he should have been…

  • Chris Alo on April 30, 2024

    For obvious reasons, Adam West. And congrats!

    • Roger Cassell on April 30, 2024

      Roddy McDowall as the devil!!!

  • Mike on April 30, 2024

    Vincent Price. How can you not love anything that has Vincent Price in? He makes every movie or TV show he is in so much better.

  • Bruno Billion on April 30, 2024

    Congrats on the 18th anniversary!

    Favorite Love Boat guest star? Robbie the Robot, with Vincent Price a close second.

  • Brian A on April 30, 2024

    Andy Warhol!

  • Kevin Ogden on April 30, 2024

    Happy 18th Birthday
    Heres to Plaid Stallions reaching a ripe old age
    Hands down favourite love boat guest is Vincent Price although to be honest he’s my favourite guest on anything

  • Jason Allgood on April 30, 2024

    That’s easy. Bill Bixby! He was my hero I was a wee one!

  • Chris Thornsberry on April 30, 2024

    First, CONGRATULATIONS!!! What an awesome thing!!!

    Second, I loved Leslie Nielson on the Love Boat. One of my favorite episodes AND actors. I love that he carried a fart noise maker to every interview he did.

  • Eric on April 30, 2024

    Congratulations on your 18th anniversary! Todd Bridges for the win.

  • Tim MacLean on April 30, 2024

    Favourite Love Boat guest: Rich Little
    Congratulations and Happy Birthday!

  • John Stater on April 30, 2024

    Congrats sir!

    Favorite guest star – I would say Charlie’s Angels, in the cross-over at established the Spelling-Verse, but that was technically some Love Boaters guesting on the Angel’s show. So I’ll go Village People!

  • Dan Simpson on April 30, 2024

    The Village People! Who brought a horse to enter into the Acapulco Steeplechase!!

  • Shawn Clemons on April 30, 2024

    Erin Gray!!!! I had the hots for her so bad when I was a kid. I had to look up her character, because I couldn’t remember, but she played Maggie Cook. Sooooo fine.

  • Aaron on April 30, 2024

    We watched this every week as a family, and as a kid it held some humor for me, but it didn’t hit the nerd button of my soul, until… Vincent Price.

  • Joe Ryder on April 30, 2024

    Happy Birthday! If this was 1982 when I turned 18, Pod Stallions would be old enough to have a beer!

    As for favorite Love Boat guests, the kneejerk answer is Charo, followed by any former Brady, or Charlie’s Angel.

    But I have to go with crazy John Astin, who takes the Captain, Doc, Julie, Gopher, Barbi Benton, and Mrs. Roper hostage on an island! In a hurricane!!

  • Joseph Dickerson on April 30, 2024

    Vincent Price, THE AMAZING ALONZO. Obviously.

    • Thom Guthrie on April 30, 2024

      Deacon Dark. Charo was on ten times. The Deacon only needed one.
      Congratulations on being one of the reasons I love the Internet!

  • Dave Almeida on April 30, 2024

    Charo! Because coochie coochie!

  • Lucien Desar on April 30, 2024

    Charo was my favorite guest on the Loveeeee Boat

    Congrats on being 18!! You can vote now and be drafted. Well in the U.S. at least but you are Canadian so you might get drafted to be in the Mounties I think? my American ignorance and arrogance is shining through. Congrats on all the entertainment you’ve provided us through the years.

  • Rod Whitenack on April 30, 2024

    I have really enjoyed Plaid Stallions in all of its incarnations over the years! My favorite “Love Boat” costars are Janet Leigh and Jamie Lee Curtis. Thanks for the memories! – Rod

  • Ryan on April 30, 2024

    Happy Happy 18! Also not fair, Sonny is also my favorite. Friends of ours are going on an actual Love Boat cruise, I’ve bought a Mego Isaac to have Mr Lange sign it.

  • Paul on April 30, 2024

    Congrats on 18 Years!

  • Brent Goddard on April 30, 2024

    Definitely Vincent Price was my favorite Love Boat guest star, but also Roddy McDowall among others, and I won’t mention how many female guests I had crushes on.

  • Dave on April 30, 2024

    Gotta be Bob Denver. What a different boating experience for him.

  • Anthony Bialy on April 30, 2024

    Dick Butkus.

  • Chuck on April 30, 2024

    Don’t forget the Loni Anderson 2 parter that started on Love Boat but ended on Fantasy Island!

  • Dave on April 30, 2024

    Susan Anton

  • Joe Ring on April 30, 2024

    Eric Estrada I’m mean heck IT’S PONCH Loved me some C. H. I. P. s and the love boat WHOOP WHOOP BOOOOOOOOOM

  • Rudy Panucci on April 30, 2024

    Cab Calloway remains one of the coolest people to ever walk the planet. He’s the link between Max Fleischer and The Beatles and The Blues Brothers, and so much other coolness.

  • Rudy V on April 30, 2024

    I can’t choose between the hilarious Sherman Helmsley, the ever classy Gene Kelly, or the incomparable Paul Williams.

  • Tom on April 30, 2024

    Great comments ! I’ll go with Tom Hanks and Andy Warhol who appeared as spies on the Love Boat.

  • Timothy Burns on April 30, 2024

    Hands down. It has be Paul williams! Simply because he’s a crazy talented singer-songwriter, and actor. But as a kid in the seventies I didn’t realize he was that talented. I just remember him being in everything in the 70s. Lol

  • Mark Smith on April 30, 2024

    Riddle me this, who is my favorite Love Boat guest star? Why, John Astin of course!

  • David W. on April 30, 2024

    My favorite guest on Love Boat was Dian Parkinson.

    • Steve W. on May 2, 2024

      Happy Birthday to a wonderful site! Your sense of humor and nostalgia keep me coming back! I think I will go with Ethel Merman guest starring as Gopher’s mother. One of the unusual bits of Canon in the show through a few seasons.

  • Rick Laxton on April 30, 2024

    Nothing sums up cheesy 70s TV quite like Sonny Bono as Deacon Dark although The Village People appearing on the Love Boat is a close second. Honorable mention to Robby The Robot who is listed as “Bix” in the credits.

  • D Ryan Allen on April 30, 2024

    Congratulations on the 18th Anniversary!
    My favorite Love Boat guest was Vincent Price.

    Andy Warhol!

    • Terry Mercer on May 2, 2024

      I didn’t watch The Love Boat but I love your channel (great positive energy). Congratulations!

      Vincent Price (he elevates everything).

  • Steve on April 30, 2024

    It is Charo!

  • Andrew Winter on April 30, 2024

    Congratulations! It’s very hard to pick one but I guess Phil Silvers.

  • Tyler Archbold on April 30, 2024

    Congratulations on 18 great years, Brian! I’m proud to have been been a Stallion for the last few years. Thanks for creating this wonderful community.

    I really want to say Don Adams, Gordon Jump, Loni Anderson, and others, for what I know them from, but I have to go with Vincent Price in his spooky Hallowe’en episode!

  • Christopher Brown on April 30, 2024

    Gotta go with Patrick Wayne! Fresh off of playing Sinbad and cruising with the Pacific Princess crew as an undercover FBI agent hunting the mob!

  • Eric Hecht on April 30, 2024

    If I haven’t been here the whole 18 years, its been damn close. Love all you do Brian.
    Catherine Bach! My young mind was blown to see my sweet Daisy on the boat.

  • Vinny on April 30, 2024

    Dirk Benedict .

  • Greg Little on April 30, 2024

    I’ve always loved the episode with Ernest Borgnine as Dominic. I absolutely adore Ernest. He always came across as so sincere and genuine (and he’s in one of my all time favorite flicks, Bad Day at Black Rock). A real class act. 2 years later he’d go on to be in one of my favorite things ever to exist, Airwolf. Congratulations on Plaid Stallions, Brian. I came across your youtube channel quite by accident, and I’m absolutely glad I did. I now own my very own Brick Mantooth Ultimate Man of the 70’s figure and I look forward to every video and live stream you produce. Here’s to 18 more years!

  • Kenneth Sean McMillan on April 30, 2024

    Congratulations on your continued success, Brian.

    As for my favorite Love Boat guest:
    The one and only DEBBIE ALLEN!

  • Paul on April 30, 2024

    Wow! 18! I can’t remember how long ago I found this site, but I love it. My fav has got to be Vincent Price. He should have guest starred on every show.

  • Shawn Clemons on April 30, 2024

    Erin Gray!!!!

  • Jamie Jones on April 30, 2024

    My favorite Love Boat guest is Charro, of course!

  • Thomas on April 30, 2024

    Hulk hogan

  • Eric Stemple on April 30, 2024


  • J.G. on April 30, 2024

    Don Knotts. Loved seeing him in just about anything and he had a whimsical bit of fun on the ship. Could have seen an alternate world where he was a rival captain on a more beleaguered boat.

  • Josh Kopit on April 30, 2024

    Congrats! I subscribed to this channel last year and it’s now of my all time favorite toy related channels (and Toy Polloi). I also got both of the books (regular bathroom reading material for me). They’re both wonderful.

    For Love Boat I’d pick Betty White, just cuz I love Betty.

    • Gordon Long on May 1, 2024

      It’s very hard, as there were so many great guest stars. But I will go with Charo, for her 9 guest appearances across all seasons as April Lopez (and a one-shot other than April). She wasn’t considered a regular.

      A close second is Marion Ross (best known to us 70s/80s kids as Mrs. Cunningham from Happy Days), who put in 6 guest appearances in five episodes, then 8 appearances in the last two seasons as Emily, a love interest for, then the wife of, the Captain. She was still considered a guest star, appearing in that portion of the opening credits in both the last regular season with 4 appearances or in the final season composed of specials with four more appearances.

      Ironically, both April and Emily made their last appearances in the same episode.

  • Jim Klaisle on April 30, 2024

    Barbi Benton…..just typing her name is driving me crazy!!

  • Rich Hurley on April 30, 2024

    Vincent Price of course! “ My prize ascot just flew overboard. Put Jodi in a dinghy and have him row around it until we return!”

  • Trey DuBose on April 30, 2024

    Charro. I always loved Charro!

  • George Kopick on April 30, 2024

    Paul Williams!

  • Mike Desens on April 30, 2024

    Joyce Dewitt as a guest star

    Although I had a pretty big crush on Jill Whelan

  • Ray Sablack on April 30, 2024

    I feel this is a trap wherein I have to choose the better Landers Sister, and no one wins, but if I have to narrow it down, I’ll choose Judy simply because of her link to Waylon Flowers and Madame.

  • Peter MacDonald on April 30, 2024

    Paul Williams, baby!

    • Lamont Turner on April 30, 2024

      Vincent Price

  • Bill Hahner on April 30, 2024

    Adult me would say Charles Nelson Riley but young me would pick Nicholas Hammond!

  • brian brehmer on April 30, 2024

    i see that others have chosen my answer
    and to give them a fair chance
    i will refrain from answering
    and stay in the shadows as others win.
    congrats to the winners and to your anniversary

  • Erik Griffon on April 30, 2024

    My favorite guest star is definitely Jamie Lee Curtis. I also love her for her roles in Halloween.

  • J. R. Bowen on April 30, 2024

    Dirk Benedict: no matter if he was a colonial pilot or a soldier of fortune, the guy added class wherever he appeared.

  • Mike on April 30, 2024

    Happy Birthday! Plaid Stallions is a year away from being able to buy beer.

    Favourite Love Boat guest has to be Don Knots. He woos Julie Newmar in his episode. Not too shabby.

  • Graeme Ellis on May 1, 2024

    Gotta go with Robby the Robot! Yes, he was on the show. He played Bix. Did he find love? Probably not…

  • Tony Harry on May 1, 2024

    My favorite guest was Bill Bixby in season 1 episode 4 “A Message for Maureen.” Because recognizing him from the Incredible Hulk it was nice to see him on the Love Boat. I also expected to see the Hulk! Lol! I was a little kid and didn’t know any better! Everything was about superheroes!

  • Bill on May 1, 2024


    So many iconic guests on the Love Boat, but if I had to choose one I would pick Lee Majors, I just love the Six Million Dollar Man and the Fall Guy!

  • Etienne on May 1, 2024

    Kristie Alley was my favorite guess star. I had a big crush on her.

    Congrats on your 18th birthday Plaid!

    As a kid, it was easy to recognize the Happy Days crew, so I’ll say Tom Bosley.

    Ernest Borgnine! I kept hoping for a sequel to The Poseidon Adventure might happen to the Love Boat. haha

  • Blake Kay on May 1, 2024

    My favorite guest is from a season 1 episode, and it’s Milton Berle as Cyril Wolfe, the husband who can’t stop pulling pranks.

  • Ian Christy on May 1, 2024

    Congrats on your anniversary!

    There’s tons of great cameos, guest stars, and actors still getting their start in the biz.

    One of my favorites is Adrienne Barbeau in a two-parter. As a fan of Escape from New York, I’d like to pretend her journey to the prison island of Manhattan somehow entailed the Love Boat.

  • Marc Rouleau on May 1, 2024

    Bill Bixby

  • Anthony on May 2, 2024

    Congrats on being 18!

    And John Amos, who’s always fantastic in everything he does

  • Carl on May 2, 2024

    Jamie Lee Curtis What a fun episode that one was.

  • Jason on May 2, 2024

    Favorite Love Boat guest was Charo!

  • Eric Quakenbush on May 2, 2024

    Baby Tom Hanks in season 4

  • John Tessier on May 2, 2024

    My favorite love boat guest would have been the lovely Adrienne Barbeau. Just can’t beat her personality and looks.

    Thanks for all the years of hard work and congratulations on the 18th birthday!

  • Ryan Prast on May 2, 2024

    Charo. How can anybody not like Charo???

  • David Roberts on May 2, 2024

    Another one for Vincent Price. Everything is better with Vincent Price.

  • Glen Davis on May 3, 2024

    Peter Lawford! Thrown out of The Rat Pack for trying to be a hippie, to guesting on The Love Boat!

    • Michael Holman on May 3, 2024

      Any opportunity to vote for Michael J Fox is alright by me. So I guess that’s my vote. Thanks Brian!

  • noe enrique castrellon bolivar on May 3, 2024

    You can’t never go wrong with good old David Hasselhoff.

  • Rick Thorpe on May 3, 2024

    Don Adams

    Just cause it was literally the first time I’d seen him in anything other than Get Smart, and with Bernie Kopell in cast, it was just the right level of wonder and surrealness.

    • Mark Reeder on May 3, 2024

      It has to be Vincent Price.
      But Charro and Jamie Lee Curtis are close seconds.

  • Mark Reeder on May 3, 2024

    It has to be Vincent Price.
    But Charro and Jamie Lee Curtis are close seconds.

  • Michael Proteau on May 3, 2024

    Lots of choices, single guest-Adam West, group guest Harlem Globetrotters (with the Village People a close second).

  • Jonathan Groves on May 3, 2024

    Don knotts was a great.

  • Martin on May 3, 2024

    For some reason I feel like I should answer Rudolph Mantooth…
    But for me it’s either Jaclyn Smith for the crush factor, or Gene Kelly because I have a soft spot for those old musical actors. Congrats on PS turning legal!

  • Robert Gross on May 3, 2024

    Charo! Happy Birthday PS!

  • Jeanette Jackson on May 3, 2024

    Congratulations on the 18th. My favourite is Vincent Price

Mall with Jean Michael Vincent in damnation alley ,lived in the planet of the apes in the t.v. show ,rossrch on the watchmen ,Freddy Krueger ……. Hello…

  • Bill McFarland on May 3, 2024

    Congrats on another year of awesome content!

    Since you stole my first thought and made me start humming Smash it in my head, I went to my perennially favorite C-lister, which led me to my answer! I searched my file of very important memories to recall Charles Nelson Reilly’s guest. Doing so, however, led me to my favorite guest- Ted Knight as Gunner Norqvist, the Jean LaFoot to Stubing’s Capt’n Crunch. Even before Caddyshack, Knight was nailing the nautical jerk!

    OK, now that I’ve given the right answer, GIMME!

  • J A McC on May 3, 2024

    Ernie Anderson, while technically not a guest star, he did voice-over work for ABC TV network during the 1970s and 1980s. “coming up on the Love boat”.

    Before that, he was Ghoulardi (from Cleveland). You gotta check him out!


  • Michael Gross on May 3, 2024

    I’d have to say Ron Ely who played multiple characters, Ted Cole, Jim, Steve Swaggart, and Darryl Brewster. Anyone that can play Doc Savage and Tarzan and multiple roles on Love Boat deserves major props!!

  • Matthew Ramage on May 3, 2024

    I’m gonna have to say, Jamie Lee Curtis. Even in a non scary part in a t.v. show or movie WE ALL KNOW there’s that spooky aura surrounding her lololol.

  • joanne darrell on May 3, 2024

    Vincent Price.Happy Anniversary.

  • delfina trevisan on May 3, 2024

  • Leanne Robinson on May 4, 2024

    Sonny Bono

  • Erin OConnell on May 4, 2024

  • Steve on May 4, 2024
