REVIVALS

A Desi Arnaz music video and album are out, featuring his performances on I Love Lucy. The Mambo Kings, featuring a Desi Arnaz character, is coming to the theaters. Look for a boom in bongo sales.

WALDO TO GO

Hey! Even Father Guido Sarducci has concocted his own recipe for celebrity spaghetti sauce! Now, for tykes, Campbell’s is about to introduce Where’s Waldo? SpaghettiOs. Kids can find and devour the tiny hero and his tiny dog, Woof. Next: Bambi crackers.
