Hot for Tootie

Some memorabilia from The Facts of Life. Oh yes. The Flea as a young man had a thing for Tootie. I think it was the rollerskates. Better get back to work on my forthcoming article, "TC, Tootie and Tattoo: aporia and alliteration in 80s tv sidekicks".

What's this? I thought you were deprived of television in your youth! Now I'm beginning to question those stories of miserable afternoons wandering around the frozen wastes too...

You have no shame, sir. =) I would never even admit (in public) to having watched The Facts of Life, let alone having retained in memory, some 20 years later, the name of a major character.

Hey, Tootie kicked ass!

It is true we were without cable in the great northern wastes of my youth (at least we were if you had British parents suspicious of cable) but we did get The Facts of Life.
