RIP Andrew Fenady

LOS ANGELES — Writer, producer and novelist Andrew J. Fenady, who worked such TV shows as “Branded” and “The Rebel” and films including “Terror in the Wax Museum” and “The Man With Bogart’s Face,” died at his home here on April 16 of natural causes. He was 91.

He also served as producer for the TV movie (and unsuccessful pilot) “The Stranger,” seen in episode 305- STRANDED IN SPACE.

The Hollywood Reporter has a nice look back.

Thanks to Tim for the heads up.

    By the way, I doubt Fenady had much to do with it, but the short-lived “Branded” had one of those great, iconic theme songs.

    But apparently he did do the theme music for The Rebel.

    I remember in elementary school there being a 9-year-old boy version of the Branded theme song:

    “Stranded, stranded on the toilet bowl
    What do you do when you’re
    Stranded, and you can’t reach a roll?”

    It’s a shame what utter nonsense occupies space in my brain….

    So this one man tried to with all his might
    He was finally relieved but
    Stranded, stranded on the toilet bowl
    What do you do when you’re stranded and you can’t find the roll?

    He was in a stall and he had to go
    But then to his surprise was
    Stranded, stranded on the toilet bowl
    What do you do when you’re stranded and you can’t find the roll?

    To prove you’re a man you must wipe with your hand
    While you stand in the can – STRANDED!

    Now all I can think about are the multiple alternative lyrics to BATMAN NA NA NA NANA NA…

    RIP

    For a sensible little chuckle, go to imdb and check out who created and produced “Branded.”

    I could say I had to look it up, but that would break my Boy Scout oath.
