Daily Heroine: Evie Garland

Today’s Daily Heroine is: Evie Ethel Garland (played by the lovely and exceptionally talented Maureen Flannigan) from the cult American sci-fi sit-com titled Out of this World, which was first broadcast in 1987. Boy, did I have a crush on Evie as a kid, After all, she’s cute, she’s clever and she’s kind. Oh, and her father is an alien, so she has special, superhuman powers too! How fantastic is that?😆 As for Out of this World in general, I think it’s a lot of fun. Nothing fancy, just a simple, good-natured light comedy, that never fails to give me a chuckle or too when I watch it. Unfortunately it has never had a complete DVD or Blu-ray release, and this is apparently due to legal issues. But maybe one day…? I can always dream!😄

I’m always on the look out for new interesting and likeable heroines, so if you have a particular favourite, please tell me about her! Till tomorrow, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you.😊

Happy Birthday Maureen Flannigan!

Today is December 30, the birthday of one of my biggest childhood crushes, Maureen Flannigan. And so, as I’ve done for several years now, I’ve drawn a picture of Ms Flannigan as Evie Garland from the 80s sitcom Out of this World. Like last year’s drawing, I imagined Out of this World as a Japanese Comic and I used the very first episode, where Evie learns the truth about her Dad, for inspiration. I simply adore Ms Flannigan’s hairstyles in this episode, especially this one. But I really do wonder… How many more years will it be before these drawings actually start looking like Evie?😅 Anyway, due to the fact that today, in my part of the world, it will be ridiculously hot (43°C!), this will most definitely be my final post for 2019. So until 2020, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!😊

Happy Birthday Maureen Flannigan!

Today, December 30, is the 45th birthday of one of my childhood crushes, the lovely and talented Maureen Flannigan. In recent years, I have made it a tradition to commemorate Maureen‘s birthday by drawing a birthday-themed picture of Maureen as Evie Garland, the central character of my favourite 80s sitcom, Out of this World.

Happy Birthday Maureen!

Today (December 30) is the 44th birthday of Maureen Flannigan, the star of one of my favourite sit-coms, Out of this World! I’m not very good at portraits, but for this special occasion I’ve once again made an attempt to draw a picture of Maureen as Evie, the character she played on Out of this World. Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!😊

Happy Birthday Maureen!

December 30 is the birthday of the very lovely Maureen Flannigan. In case you don’t know, Maureen was the star of the American 80s’ sitcom Out of this world, where she played the role of Evie Garland, the daughter of an Earthling mother and an Antarean (i.e. alien) father, the result of which was that she inherited some really whacky powers, such as the ability to stop time by simply putting her index fingers together. And I had a big, big crush on her; like every other boy who watched OotW, I imagine.

To this day, I think Maureen is the only person I have ever sent a fan letter to. And here is my proof.

I’m not sure what Maureen is up to right now, but I do know she is still acting, which I am happy about. Anyway, I hope that she is well and that she has a very wonderful birthday this year.

Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!
