Bald Beagle, ACLJ’s New Educational Entertainment Channel for Kids, Releases “George Washington Loved to Dance”


Bald Beagle, an exciting new educational entertainment channel for kids, has released Episode 1: “George Washington Loved to Dance.” Bald Beagle is the creation of The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) creative team, made up of dynamic writers, performers, and creators whose credits include entertainment giants like Disney and Nickelodeon. 

George Washington Loved to Dance” Episode Summary: Join us on a field trip to the Bald Beagle Institute of Historical Stuff for a special lesson about our founding father, George Washington. Everyone knows that Washington was America’s first President, but there are many other interesting facts about him that most people don’t know. For instance, despite how serious he appears in paintings and even on the dollar bill, did you know that George Washington loved to dance?

Featuring puppets, cutting-edge animation, music and more to connect with young audiences, Bald Beagle offers short-form videos designed to make kids smile, sing, and laugh while also teaching them about our country’s important and often inspiring history. Bald Beagle will also present lessons of faith and the moral principles that our nation was founded on — principles so many of us still share today.

Bald Beagle is a place for kids to find engaging, educational entertainment that illustrates the great – and sometimes complicated – history and principles of these United States we are blessed to call home. From the Founding Fathers, to how government actually works, to what they, even as kids, can do to protect and preserve our constitutional republic. Moms, dads, and grandparents can rest assured that their kids are being taught fundamental truths – not being exposed to some extreme, subversive agenda – through high-quality content that can compete with the best children’s entertainment that television, streaming services, or the internet have to offer.

Bald Beagle is FREE and available on the Bald Beagle YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/BaldBeagle/. Subscribe today!

Breaking News: Comedy Legend Tim Conway Passes Away

 

For those of us who grew up in the 60’s and 70’s, Tim Conway is a comedy legend. Amy and I continue to watch and love old episodes of “The Carol Burnett Show”, and especially love the ones that Tim appeared in.

It was so funny to see Tim make his fellow actors laugh when they should have been in character during a skit. Harvey Korman could hardly keep a straight face in nearly every scene they were involved in on the iconic Carol Burnett show.

While the character Mr. Tudball was among our favorite characters, it was the “Oldest Man” that topped them all. Watch this short video clip of Tim Conway as the Oldest Man.

Amy and I are saddened by the death of one of our all-time favorites, and our prayers go out to his family, friends, and fans. May Tim Conway’s memory live forever, and what a blessing it is to still be able to watch him performing his craft.

Read the announcement of Tim Conway’s passing below this picture of Tim and Harvey.

Comedy legend Tim Conway, star of ‘The Carol Burnett Show,’ dead at 85

Tim Conway, the Golden Globe Award-winning actor who embodied several comical characters on “The Carol Burnett Show” including the Oldest Man and Mr. Tudball has died at age 85.

Conway died Tuesday morning after a long illness in Los Angeles, according to his rep Howard Bragman. His daughter, Kelly, told Fox News on Tuesday her father is “at peace now.”

“The love he gave us, and the laughter he gave the world will never be replaced, but will be remembered forever,” Kelly told us. “He is at peace now but I will miss him every second of every day until we meet again in heaven.

“We knew he would have to leave us someday, but that day came too soon. When he used to hear the song ‘Angel Flying Too Close to the Ground’ he would say, ‘I want that played at my funeral.'”

Conway’s longtime friend and fellow star Carol Burnett told Fox News, “I’m heartbroken. He was one in a million, not only as a brilliant comedian but as a loving human being. I cherish the times we had together both on the screen and off. He’ll be in my heart forever.

New From The Oak Ridge Boys

The Oak Ridge Boys Team Up With Grammy Museum For Intimate Performance on February 15th

TV Alert: The Oaks Set To Perform On Hallmark Channel’s ‘Home & Family’ Tomorrow!

LOS ANGELES, Calif.The Oak Ridge Boys announce the exclusive premiere of their latest video, “Pray To Jesus,” a song that was originally recorded by its co-writer, Brandy Clark, who was GRAMMY nominated for “Best New Artist” in 2015, at Billboard.com. The new track is included in the Oaks’ forthcoming album, 17th Avenue Revival, available everywhere March 16th on Lightning Rod Records.

Recorded at Nashville’s historic RCA Studio A and produced by acclaimed pop/rock producer Dave Cobb, 17th Avenue Revival finds The Oak Ridge Boys returning to their gospel roots. But a different kind of gospel. One that took a hard look at the early days of rock and roll, which was influenced by spiritual, or black gospel.

The Oak Ridge Boys are also set to play the prestigious GRAMMY Museum’s Clive Davis Theater on February 15th, for an intimate conversation and performance spotlighting 17th Avenue Revival. The performance will be hosted by GRAMMY Museum Executive Director Scott Goldman.

The Oak Ridge Boys will continue the promotional trail as they make an appearance on Hallmark Channel’s Home & Family on February 15th. In addition to providing a little help in the kitchen with hosts Mark Steines & Debbie Matenopoulos, fans can catch a special performance by The Oak Ridge Boys.
