U is for Ubu

Ubu was the dog of the television sitcom "Family Ties" producer, Gary David Godlberg. The series was modeled after the "real life" experiences of Goldberg and his wife as they transitioned from "hippies" to suburban family life.

At the end of each show a voice dub over would say "Sit Ubu, sit!" Ubu was a black labrador. Ubu had actually traveled with Goldberg and was a part of his college adventures.

Good dog. I used to randomly quote that, and my kids thought I was nuts. Well, I am, but that's a different story.

I remember hearing "Sit Ubu, sit!" from that show!

A blast from the past, so to speak.
