REVUE STARS' 30 YEARS OF WEDDED BLISS!
by Mimi Brickmeyer. [October
In the cruelly sadistic world of showbiz -- notorious for its shockingly
high divorce rate! -- Doug Momary and Emily Peden, the much- beloved actors
behind the much-adored faces of "Doug" and "Emmy Jo" on TVs New
Zoo Revue -- and who in real-life tied the knot just as their much-praised
show began its much-watched production from 1972-77! -- are still happily
married after 30 years of wedded bliss!
That's the shocking discovery
discovered by a crack team of Hollywood Investigator investigative researchers
researching the internet!
Baby boomers and others who
were children during the 1970s still fondly recall the warmly-zany antics
of such beloved TV characters as "Henrietta Hippo," "Charlie the Owl,"
and the much-beloved "Freddie the Frog."
These unforgettable TV friends
taught a generation of tots to understand such values as understanding,
friendship, sharing, and caring.
They taught their universal
life lessons both through their own hilarious hijinks -- and through song
and dance! -- performed with the support of their warm and supportive human
friends, "Doug" and "Emmy Jo."
Doug Momary, co-creator
and creative force behind New Zoo Revue, played the warmly- understanding
"Doug." Momary tied the knot with the Texas-born Emily Peden just
as their much- beloved show -- which retains its much-influential cult
status after 30 years! -- began production.
The Momarys seemingly disappeared
after New Zoo Revue's coldly cruel cancellation in 1977. Yet after
a painstaking investigation, the Hollywood Investigator has learned that
the Momarys are still happily married!
Together, this warmly-loving
real-life couple are owner-operators of the Las Vegas-based Laguna
Productions, a producer of commercials, PSAs, and industrials.
Amazingly, Laguna Productions
credits the warmly-multi-talented Doug Momary as its Founder, Owner, President,
and Creative Director!
Even more startling! -- Emily
Peden has blossomed into a brainiac math wiz! The former songtress
and hoofer, who sang and hoofed with hubby Momary throughout New Zoo Revue's
five-year production, now crunches numbers as Laguna's VP of Finance!
But that's no surprise to
generations of adoring moppets!
Peden was sweetheart to millions of heartbreak tots who fell head-over-heels
in puppy love with the warmly-endearing "Emmy Jo" and her warm smile, caring
family- friendly songs, tight mini-skirts, and knockout go-go boots.
And as Laguna's website reveals,
Peden is still a warmly-knockout gal!
As befits the warmly-family-oriented
Momarys, their Laguna Productions remains a warmly-family-oriented company! Laguna's web designer is Robert Momary -- "Doug" and "Emmy Jo's" warmly-loving
son! -- and hubby to his warmly-talented songtress wife -- with whom Robert
has released the doubtlessly warm album: Kaufman County.
Momary showbiz dynasty remains committed to warm family-friendly TV moppet
fare. Apart from their cold corporate projects, they are currently
developing a new PBS show for tots: The New Crusaders.
New Zoo's warmly-zany
toothless eldster postman "Mr. Dingle" was played by the youthfully toothy
Chuck Woolery. Woolery went on to host TV's steamy red-hot Love Connection.
