No, he's not dead. But his official website is.
This link used to lead to The Official Ron Harper Website. But now it's been shut down, apparently at his request. Bummer. I discovered it when it was still running near the end of summer this year (2000) but didn't get around to trying to investigate it until December. That's what I get for procrastinating. :(
It's Practically an Urban Legend
Here are some past articles regarding the old "Chaka is the lead singer of Sugar Ray" controversy from from Wall of Sound, Music Central and E! Online.
Will the Real Cha-ka Please Stand Up?
Rod Sheppard, lead singer of Sugar Ray, apologized in September, 1999 for jokingly claiming to be the actor who portrayed Cha-ka the Paku. Of course, all true fans know that Cha-ka was played by boy karate champ, Philip Paley. See the article by Buck Wolf of ABC news: Cha-ka the Monkeyboy Speaks. (Thanks to Robert Porter for digging up the link.)
Philip has also been known to post messages at landofthelost.com, so check it out!
He Don't Smell That Bad, Really!
Check out this short but fun biography of Bobby Porter, the one and only Stink the Paku, from the days when he was Andy the robot on Quark.
Are you into S&M? Krofft that is...
Sid and Marty Krofft will be appearing at The Museum of Television and Radio in Los Angeles for the The World of Sid and Marty Krofft seminar on Wednesday, December 1, 1999. The price is $10.00. Here is the clipping from the website:
"You think that's funny? You think that's funny?! I'll show you funny..!"
Okay, boys and girls get out your video tapes! In the original series episode, "Skylons", there's a scene in which Will is trying to catch some red, white and blue chickens by hand for supper. While he runs around trying to grab one, the chickens are, of course, clucking...and a stage hand or someone off camera can just be heard laughing!
I first noticed this around a couple months ago, I think, when I was rewatching the episodes. But I wasn't sure what I was hearing was actually some man's laughter or just a strange chicken noise. Fan Robert "not Bobby" Porter also noticed it and asked me about it, and we confirmed for each other what we'd heard.
Be on the listen for this amusing gaff.
