|Scott Baio as The Boy Who Drank Too Much|
DVD available at http://brutallo.com/cult4.html
When you hear the name Scott Baio, you most likely think of Charles in Charge or Joanie Loves Chachi or perhaps that horrible VH-1 reality show, Scott Baio Is 45 and Single. I doubt many of you think of two early 1980s after school specials staring Chachi in Charge as a drunkard in The Boy Who Drank Too Much and as a pothead in Stoned. These specials were no joke -- Scott won an Emmy Award nomination for Stoned!
Don't believe me? Check out these classic video clips to see bad boy Scott Baio in action!
Here's Scott Baio as a high school hockey star headed down the wrong path in the 1980 after school special, The Boy Who Drank Too Much.
Here's Scott as a high school skateboarding druggie in the 1981 classic after school special, Stoned.
Ha!! Awesome post.
Oh Scott Baio! I loved him so.
Oh you got all the ladies excited with this one.
I've never seen these, or if I did I have long forgotten them! I do remember one with two girls who get drunk and decide to ride their horse (I know right, WTF?) and they ride the horse into traffic and get hit! Gah! That one stuck with me!
I vaguely remember Stoned. I think that's what I watched because my teacher knew we all watched Charles in Charge. lol. Ohh Baio. You are a character. I remember seeing Calista Flockhart in a Bulimia one too. yikes! Dead ringer!
He was such a cutie!
My oldest daughter was crazy for him.
I was not allowed to watch these specials because my parents thought that although had a good message, they might "plant seeds". So tame in comparison to today's stuff.
Way to mess up your life Chachie. Didn't that first movie teach you anything about addiction. Oh and to believe that Scott Baio played hockey and was not already killed on the ice is beyond me. I couldn't suspend my disbelief to enjoy the production as much as I loved those after school specials. 'The Wave' was my personal favorite. Great post as always.
