Plaid Stallions Sweet 16 Contest

It’s Plaid Stallions’ birthday, and it’s now old enough to drive! Starting this site on a lazy Saturday while my 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 best decisions I’ve ever made.

One of the things that made my life better was all the positive people I encountered on this journey.

I couldn’t have done any of this if you folks hadn’t encouraged me so much, so it’s time to give back with a Sweet 16 Contest of polyester proportions!

 

Sweet 16 Contest

So, I have assembled a grand prize that is as eclectic and unfocused as my interests are; I present to you the PlaidStallions Prize Pack, which includes:

Knock-Off Book

Knock-Off Book

Once copy of my latest book, Knock-Offs: Totally Unauthorized action figures.

Sweet 16 Contest

An original Mego Isaac from the Love Boat line, no, this isn’t the same one we use in our videos, but you would be none the wiser if I hadn’t told you.

There will also be two mystery runner-up prizes!

 

The Sweet 16 Contest is open anywhere in the world. To enter, merely type your answer to this question on this post (please don’t do it on the Facebook or Youtube pages), and you’re in:

Who is your favourite Love Boat Guest Star of all time?

Contest Rules:
One entry per person. There are no obscenities or mean-spirited remarks; those will get vetted (I know that seems like common sense, but trust me).

Contest winners will be announced on Sunday, May 1st , 2022 at 8 pm Eastern Standard Time.

    Growing up outside Philly, and loving the Doo Wop era, it was neat to see Frankie Avelon as a guest. He even has a version of the theme song!

    https://youtu.be/ai_HaPRRBmw

  • Danny Cruz on April 24, 2022

    Too many choices but, I decided to go with Nicholas Hammond.

  • Jason on April 24, 2022

    It’s a horse race! Early leaders were Morey Amsterdam, Ken Berry, and pod favorite Richard Dawson, then Billy Barty took the lead. There were so many great options, but I’m going with Artie Johnson.

    • Jody Yerdon on April 25, 2022

      Not easy to narrow to just one, but an early appearance by John Ritter has always stuck with me.

    • Luis Vega Ramos on April 25, 2022

      Reggie Jackson. It was so out there.

  • Doug Palumbo on April 24, 2022

    Billy Barty! Met him when I was young, very late 70’s or early 80’s. Always loved catching him on different projects!

  • Eric F on April 24, 2022

    Caren Kaye

  • Mike Mattatall on April 24, 2022

    My favorite Love Boat guest star would be Vincent Price! In fact, you can ask me that same question about pretty much any show from the 70s and 80s, and my answer will still be Vincent Price!

  • Scarletguard on April 24, 2022

    Jessica Walter (because Archer’s mom needs love too!)

  • Bill Davis on April 24, 2022

    My favourite Love Boat guest star is Adrienne Barbeau!

    • Courtney B on April 24, 2022

      Gary Burghoff for the win! <3

      • Andy Cintron on April 26, 2022

        Dick Butkus !! As a Chicago bear fan as a kid I was thrilled to see him playing a heavyweight champion. Fun fact : when I was even younger I stayed up to watch Joe Namath on a late night talk show and was disappointed that he didn’t show up in his New York Jets uniform! Another time, the TV Guide listed Jean Simmons as a guest on a late night talk show and I was convinced that they had misspelled the name and it was actually Gene Simmons from KISS. Spoiler alert, it wasn’t.. Oh to be a bright eyed kid again….

  • Sean on April 24, 2022

    Are we supposed to say Randolph .MANTOOTH. 😉

    Obviously, Charro is comes immediately to mind. And then Paul Williams.

    As a kid, it probably would have been Erik Estrada or Dirk Benedict. Or maybe one of the Gilligan’s Island crew.

  • Ian Bennett on April 24, 2022

    Telly Savalas

  • Brian Drozdick on April 24, 2022

    My favorite at the time was Bill Bixby. I was a big fan of the Incredible Hulk TV show and wanted him to become the Hulk on the boat. Now that would have been an interesting episode of Love Boat

    Bill Bixby!

  • Mark Hodges on April 24, 2022

    That’s a hard choice but I have to go with Kirstie Alley with Gomez himself John Astin a very close second if not a tied with Kirstie.

  • Curtis Joyce on April 24, 2022

    While he didn’t actually appear on the show, my favorite is the one and only Ernie Anderson. Nothing takes you back better than his slick ABC promos and voice work, telling us all about this week’s “Loooove Boat”.

    • David Wilson on April 24, 2022

      I’ll have to go with Red Buttons!
      “Who never got a Roast”

  • Andrew on April 24, 2022

    Gotta be Vincent Price, right?

  • Manny on April 24, 2022

    So hard to narrow it down to 1 but I love John Ritter and his scene with Captain Stubing were wonderfully on point and reminiscent of a Three’s Company plot. I hope it win! I want that Isaac figure for my alcohol cabinet.

    My favorite Loveboat guest was Roddy McDowall because Roddy McDowall!

  • Jes_J_Bel on April 24, 2022

    My God, who wasn’t on Love Boat? I was gonna say McLean Stevenson, then I thought, no Darren McGavin! no, wait, Robert Culp! There’s so many, but I’ll go with the great Roddy McDowall, he was in so much, Twilight Zone, Columbo, Fright Night and some obscure films with some apes 😛

    The Village People. What else could make the most ridiculous TV show of the era more fun than the most ridiculous band of the era. And a horserace debacle to boot.

  • Eric Johnson on April 25, 2022

    Jimmie Walker because “Dynomite!”.

  • Nate Richie on April 25, 2022

    Ted Knight, of course….working once again with Gavin Macleod, who were both iconic characters on the Mary Tyler Moore Show first. Who can beat a Ted Baxter and Murray Slaughter reunion on the Love Boat!

  • David Boutchia on April 25, 2022

    My Favorite Love Boat Guest star Is Or could be Larry Storch.

  • Jaeson Koszarsky on April 25, 2022

    Before climbing onto One Eyed Willy’s INFERNO as Mouth in The Goonies, Corey Feldman set sail on the Love Boat in 79 as Charlie Hanrahan and again in 82 as Mike Lee.

    BTW, if you like Macross/Robotech then you may enjoy this Macross Love Boat:

  • Jay Pennington on April 25, 2022

    Charlie’s Angels. When I stumbled upon the episode “Love Boat Angels”, I was floored. Not a crossover I would ever have expected.
    Happy Birthday Plaid Stallions!

    • Jay Pennington on April 25, 2022

      (does that count? It was technically an episode of Charlie’s Angels, but….)

  • Sean Worsfold on April 25, 2022

    Charo! Singing The Love Boat Theme!

  • Carlo A. Vera on April 25, 2022

  • Don Mctague on April 25, 2022

    Maren Jensen and Anne Lockhart…❤❤❤❤

    • Luis Nunes on April 25, 2022

      John Ritter

  • Paul on April 25, 2022

    In 1982, 10 year old me had a HUGE crush on Vicky, played by Jill Whelan. However, as a long time Battlestar Galactic (and A-Team) fan,I have to say, the most memorable episode for me starred Dirk Benedict, AKA Starbuck.

    Now, if only Jill Whelan had appeared in a skin-tight viper pilot uniform, my world would be complete!

  • Jay G. on April 25, 2022

    That’s easy, Ron Ely. How could it not be him? The man was both Tarzan and Doc Savage…

  • Ethan Richie on April 25, 2022

    Joyce Dewitt, but that’s mostly because of Three’s Company.

  • Shawn Cann on April 25, 2022

    Erik Estrada or Charro mostly because those one I remeber seeing didn’t really watch show back in the day but see rerun on Nick at Night and TBS maybe not sure Didn’t Sunny and Cher show as well.

  • Jen on April 25, 2022

    Billy Barty.

  • Jason W on April 25, 2022

    Adam West

  • Chris Cunningham on April 25, 2022

    Reb Brown

    Yeah, he’s got a minor role and it’s more of a fun appearance for a modern viewer than when we saw it aired originally. But come on, Captain America, Yor and Dave Ryder from Space Mutiny, gotta love it. Sadly, no Reb yell.

  • Ian Whitlock on April 25, 2022

    Bill Bixby, just don’t make him angry!

  • Scott Ruth on April 25, 2022

    Charro was always my favorite but who doesn’t love Pam Grier and Paul Williams?

  • John Fischer on April 25, 2022

    Maureen McCormick

  • Art Lemos on April 25, 2022

    Happy Anniversbirthday to Plaid Stallions!

  • Guy A Cucinotta on April 25, 2022

    Dirk Benedict

  • John Fronczek on April 25, 2022

    Sweet 16 Contest.
    My favorite The Love Boat guest star is Charro. Charro is my favorite guest star because she’s also a great musical guest. I love the episode when she plays a nanny.

  • Tim Schneider on April 25, 2022

    Gotta be the Batman, gotta be Adam West.

    Happy Anniversary.

  • Alan on April 25, 2022

    Charo! And in fact, I suggested Charo as a topic for episode 50 of Pod Stallions.

  • Ian on April 25, 2022

    Roddy McDowall! I’d like to think he was playing the same character he played on “Fantasy Island” (the Devil), going on cruise in cognito. The shows DID cross over, so…….

  • Matt Sirois on April 25, 2022

    Reb Brown. Because he was Captain America!

  • Michael Holman on April 25, 2022

    It has to be Ken Berry for me. My love of F Troop has seen me through some rough times and Captain Parmenter has always been there for me. A great addition to the guest star list.

    Love M*A*S*H so it got to be Loretta Swit

  • Stan J Koy on April 25, 2022

    My Favorite Love Boat guest is Dirk Benedict. Just seeing Starbuck not be Starbuck was awesome for me. It was social currency for school and my buddies the next day.

    For some reason, I didn’t expect to see him on the show. I was never surprised when Lee Majors or Adam West showed up on something, but for some reason Dirk showing up was like a surprise birthday party for me.

    Oh- and honorable mention for Kim Richards, who I was deeply in Love with during my grade school years!

  • John on April 25, 2022

    Charro

  • Rich Conroy on April 25, 2022

    Charo!

  • Bill on April 25, 2022

    This is like asking which is my favorite child!!! It’s Kevin. I like him so much better than his sisters.

    SO… if I have to choose, I’m going with Charles Nelson Reilly!! Only a true actor could make you believe he was in love with Charlotte Rae!

      • Sonny on April 26, 2022

        I remember that one.. It was called “Kaiju loves me,Kaiju loves me not???”.

  • Barry London on April 25, 2022

    Tom Smothers hands down.

  • Travis Hiltz on April 25, 2022

    Does John Astin as the crazy hermit count, as he wasn’t a passenger?

    If not, I go with Ray Bolger. He was the husband in the jinxed couple that had their honeymoon on the Titanic.

  • Andrew on April 25, 2022

    Paul Williams. Also love all his work with the Muppets.

  • Peter Vieira on April 25, 2022

    I know it seems like I’m phoning it in to say my favorite is Paul Williams since he’s pictured, but I really am a big fan of the man and find his acting, songwriting, and impact on the 70s fascinating.

  • John Stater on April 25, 2022

    The Village People!

  • Eric Fell on April 25, 2022

    Vincent Price all the way!

  • Raymond Neal on April 25, 2022

    LeVar Burton! Can’t believe none of y’all mentioned him!

    You can have your Charo’s,Roddy McDowall’s,Adam West’s and your Florence Henderson’s. My money on… PAUL DeCEGLIE!!!(there was an echo when I typed that).. And you say “Who is Paul DeCeglie???”. He was on The Love Boat 25 times and who did he play????? Passenger (uncredited).

  • Gregory C Giordano on April 25, 2022

    Andy Warhol.

    • Jason Webster on May 1, 2022

      When I was a kid, I most enjoyed seeing anyone from “Battlestar Galactica” (Lorne Greene, Richard Hatch, Dirk Benedict, Maren Jensen), or “Emergency” (Randolph Mantooth, Kevin Tighe, Robert Fuller) but it was also confusing seeing them as “regular” people in love, not the heroes I looked up to them as! Starbuck in swim trunks?!

      Therefore I must pick Tom Bosley, chasing Priscilla Barnes. That’s the weird coupling and storylines I watch Love Boat for! No wait- I’ll pick Robert Reed as Mike Brady himself (Florence Henderson Runner up as Carol Brady) in the final episode. Love Boat should have done more crossover/shared universe bits. Skipper and Gilligan on Love Boat? So much potential!

  • Eric Hecht on April 25, 2022

    My favorite guest is probably McLain Stevenson, Col. Blake from MASH. He only had two appearances that I’m aware of, but they couldn’t give the guy command of a cruise ship?

  • Nigel Jacobs on April 26, 2022

    I’ve never actually seen The Love Boat, so I’m going to have to say A Karate School!

  • Rich Hurley on April 26, 2022

    Come on! Hands down Roddy McDowall! It would have been a tougher choice if Vic Morrow or Anthony Zerbe had ever taken a cruise!

  • Pat Dorsey on April 26, 2022

    Scatman Crothers, of course.

    John Byner as a suicidal Santa at Xmas appeals to my inner sad clown.

    • Edgar Aldrett on April 26, 2022

    Darren McGavin. Maybe Kolchak was looking for another werewolf on this cruise?

  • Scott Saluga on April 26, 2022

    Johnny Yune. Nobody talks about him anymore.

  • Pete Stoll on April 26, 2022

    Cuchi-cuchi! It’s Charo all the way!

    Thank you.

  • Matt Mutchmore on April 26, 2022

    Julie Newmar—she falls in love with Don Knotts.

  • Tyler Archbold on April 26, 2022

    Oh, Leslie Nielsen for sure. He sunk the Poseidon, provided sub-par medical care in midair, and nearly destroyed Los Angeles trying to save the Queen.

  • Sal Patrone on April 26, 2022

    Randolph Mantooth, of course.

  • Raymond Scott Smith on April 26, 2022

    Marion Ross

  • John Scoleri on April 27, 2022

    Kim Richards!

  • TRA on April 27, 2022

    My favorite is Ms. Carol Channing!
    In one episode- she wins millions of dollars, + then has a good time buying things! I mean, don’t we all deserve a friend, like- Carol on The Love Boat? 😀

  • Gareth Parkinson on April 27, 2022

    Frankie Avalon, im a beach party movie nerd!!!

  • Nate Higley on April 27, 2022

    Bill Bixby!

  • Nicholas Volosin on April 27, 2022

    Kirstie Alley

  • kurtis primm on April 27, 2022

    Bob Denver

  • Len James on April 27, 2022

    Another one for Vincent Price!

  • John J Gero Jr. on April 27, 2022

    Tom Hanks will get my vote

  • J A McCullough on April 27, 2022

    I vote for the announcer: Ernie Anderson “the voice of ABC” AKA Ghoulardi !!!

    If I have to pick someone on the show: Carolyn Jones!

  • jeff on April 27, 2022

    Lee Majors

  • Chris on April 27, 2022

    Don Knotts

  • Rick on April 27, 2022

    Bert Convy. He epitomizes the type of “Love Boat star,” he made multiple appearances over the years, AND he even played himself in the penultimate episode!

  • Nicholas Bartolo on April 27, 2022

    Andy Warhol

  • Aaron on April 27, 2022

    I feel like I’m supposed to say Jamie Farr because of the glasses, but it’s actually Andy Warhol.

  • R. Stacey on April 27, 2022

    There are too many great ones, but I’ll say Don Knotts…

  • Richard Watts on April 27, 2022

    I’d have to say Bill Bixby – I could never watch “Love Boat” Re-runs with him afterwards, as I just wanted him to “Hulk out” aboard ship in the Dinning Room!

  • Michael on April 27, 2022

    Gary Coleman….

    mostly because I love how weird his episode was.

  • Steve W. on April 27, 2022

    How about Captain Stubing’s brothers played by Gavin McCleod himself…..oops, I mean played “OD Warbux” and “Sonny Wilde” according to the credits. LOL.

  • Colin Hampsey on April 27, 2022

    Ernest Borgnine!

    Honerable mention: the great Betty White.

  • Rick Laxton on April 28, 2022

    Roddy McDowall because I believe it was a federal law that if you had a TV show in the 70s and early 80s, you were required to have him guest star in at least one episode.

  • Warren Harold on April 28, 2022

    So many…but I gotta go with Billy Barty!!

  • Mike Cowgill on April 28, 2022

    Dick Van Patten because DVP makes everything better!

    You’re sixteen…
    You’re beautiful…
    And those Star Trek paper plates must be mine!

    Andy Warhol, cans down–uh, I mean hands down.

  • Steve Shelley on April 29, 2022

    I hadn’t got a clue who he was at the time but I just remembered his name as I couldn’t believe someone would name their son Red Buttons

  • Lucien Desar on April 29, 2022

    That would have to be:

    Betty White
    as Betsy Boucher

  • Jason Robinson on April 29, 2022

    That is a tough one, as there are many, but I will go with John Ritter.

  • Don on April 29, 2022

    Seeing my favorites from the shows I love was so much fun, but, back then my absolute favorite was Emergency! So, Randolph Mantooth is my choice.

  • Simon Trent on April 29, 2022

    In honor of 16 years, I’d like to present my 15 runner-ups as we get on board this exciting adventure:
    Telly Savalas; Jerry Stiller; Richard Kline; Demond Wilson; Fannie Flagg; Pam Grier; Cesar Romero; The Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders; Jackie Earle Haley (though not a star at the time); Jim Backus; Adam West; Joyce DeWitt; Catherine Bach; Robby the Robot; Barbi Benton
    and my selection as Best Guest star to sail away on the Love Boat is…

    Lorenzo Lamas

    (PS – Thanks for creating a rabbit hole I’ve been quite happy to lurk since the late aughts)

  • Lee Reibsome on April 29, 2022

    My favorite guest star was Vincent Price. Watching him get followed around the ship by all the older female passengers made it a fun episode.

    • Dan on April 29, 2022

      Jeremy Brett.

  • Walter Keegan on April 29, 2022

    Elizabeth The Koala

  • Linda Campanella on April 29, 2022

    Very tough to choose, but JOHN ASTIN. He’s awesome!

    Charro.

  • Peter Serrano on April 30, 2022

    Hulk Hogan

  • Marty Taillon on April 30, 2022

    Robert Urich

  • Mark B on April 30, 2022

    Let’s go more obscure… how about Jan Brady, Eve Plumb herself… there were lots of. Brady’s on there. I got a kick out of seeing Dawn Wells (Mary Ann) on the ship too!

    • Ben S on April 30, 2022

      PONCH! Eric Estrada

  • Brent T on May 10, 2022

    Betty White
