    I found this interview bringing back memories about the Dick Van Dyke show and Morey’s place on it. Who can forget Morey referring to his wife Bubbles. Although not mentioned on the interview it also brought back memories of the American International film that he was in Beach Party. It wasn’t great but it was fun. As Bob Hope might say “thanks for the memories”.
