I got bored and so I made a list of Samoans on TV/movies. Obviously I’m not going to include wrestling, local Samoa commercials, or anything based around Samoa because that’s just too easy. Enjoy what I’ve got so far, and I’ll make another list later.
In this clip I’m pretty sure this was the first time I’ve ever heard Samoa mentioned on TV. I can’t put an exact date when I first saw this episode but it has to be early 90’s because I didn’t start elementary school yet, and I remember when I was watching this episode, I can recall my Dad leaving to go to work. My reaction to the cartoon? I was excited because I didn’t think people knew about Samoa. It was awesome.
Tony Rocky Horror is Samoan? I laughed. Then kinda felt bad cause he got thrown from a four story building. Why feel bad? Any Samoan put in harms way I kinda feel bad.
It’s weird, I came across this clip this morning. Why weird? Well let’s just say after watching the movie Kingpin, I logged onto my computer and started looking up the Kingpin Soundtrack, and many youtube links later had me looking at The Royal Samoans and Betty Boop.
Betty Boop and The Royal Samoans.
In Boy Meets World they have some episodes where they just be yelling “Samoans” and out of nowhere we just be popping up. I don’t know the reasoning for this but I guess it’s just a random running gag.
Another time before starting elementary school I used to watch The Price is Right with my Mom. This one time this Samoan lady picked up Bob Barker and spun him around. I heard there are other Samoan ladies who’ve done that to Bob many times, so I don’t know if this was the same lady when I first saw it.
