Me, on Twitter the other day:
Another "I'm an old man" moment: Sledgehammer! is hitting its 30th anniversary. I'm one of the few who saw every ep of that in first run…— Augie De Blieck Jr. (@augiedb) January 30, 2016
Alan Spencer, creator of Sledgehammer, responded:
@augiedb Yeah, me too.— Alan Spencer (@MrAlanSpencer) January 30, 2016
Sledgehammer ran 30 years ago on ABC, and I watched and loved every episode of it. I have the DVDs around here for it. I should dip back in.
Sledge is very big in Germany. My theory is that the show was huge in Germany because David is blond and blue-eyed, and they like those kind of fascists. [Laughs.] They wanted to have an official Sledge Hammer! convention in Germany, but my fear is they were going to call it a “rally.”
