Thread: Ex-teammate becomes more successful

    LUCILLE BALL continued her TV success in front of the camera while ex-hubby DESI ARNAZ found his calling behind it as a director and producer. I don't believe he ever had an acting part of significance after I LOVE LUCY.

    Clooney was on two ER tv series, one in 1984 on CBS with Elliot Gould which was a funny show I thought, then he had a stint on the Facts of Life, Sisters and of course the ER medical series everyone remembers.

    The things I remember seeing him on were shows like ALICE or SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE, one time appearences here and there.

    Denzel Washington and Helen Hunt of St. Elsewhere became Oscar winners. Howie Mandel made his fortune asking models to open suitcases.

    Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniack founded Apple Computer, Inc. in 1976. Both were there until the early 1980s. I think Woz left first, went into other things and had moderate success.

    Jobs was fired by the CEO in 1985. Went and formed his own company NeXT which did not do very well until 1997 when Gil Amelio then CEO of Apple bought NeXT to get the technology for the next OS. Jobs was part of the deal and he ended up on the board.

    Shortly after he became "interim" CEO and moved Apple in new directions to where it is today as a multi-billion dollar electronics firm selling computers, music players and cell phones. So I guess Steve Jobs is pretty darn successful.

    Why didn't Beavis or Butthead do a solo project?

    They may not have, but don't forget their classmate, Daria, who had a several-year successful run with her own spinoff (complete series just released on DVD).

    That was Mr. Anderson who was voiced by Mike Judge, who was also the voice of both Beavis & Butthead and Hank Hill. Supposedly B&B are going to be making a comeback soon.

    Well, let's not forget that in-between his tenures at Apple, Jobs shepherded a pretty successful company that was later bought by Disney for $7 billion. That outfit was called Pixar Animation Studios.

    Jobs owned Pixar concurrently with Apple and NeXt. And now in addition to his duties at Apple he is on the board of Disney. Good for him as a lot of Disney and ABC TV content gets ported over to iTunes.

    Scientology might be right. John Travolta became the most successful after the series.

    On a local note....believe John Sylvester White, who played Mr. Woodman in the "Kotter" series died in Hawaii back in the late 1980s...
