Introduction:"Dumb blondes", especially of the female variety; are one group the political correctness police haven't yet lept to the defense of. And the stereotype is a venerable TV staple.
Goldie Hawn was known for her giggling and sometimes wriggling around in a bikini with painted on sayings on "Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In" '68-73. She raised "dumb blonde" to an art form - but was a successful actress in many movie roles including some dramas.
Jeannie, of "I Dream of..."; was magical, but a tad naive. But, give the woman a break - she was literally stuck in a bottle for 2000 years until the '60s. Which raises the question, how many blondes did you find running around in ancient Baghdad, never mind genies?
Chrissy Snow was the blonde, bikini friendly but not too brainy third of "Three's Company". Hot or not, the network declined actress Suzanne Somers' request for a hefty salary increase leading to an unhappy parting of the way. Suzanne landed on her feet, or on her side rather as a pitch woman for the Thigh Master and assorted products; as well as guesting and starring in a number of other TV series.
New York attorney Oliver Wendell Douglas never quite meshed with the largely eccentric populace of Hooterville; the farming community featured in "Green Acres". But his pretty Hungarian wife; the ditzy blonde Lisa (played by Eva Garbor)fit in quite well, in addition to being comic foil to Oliver's straight man.
What's better than a dumb blonde- how about a dumb blonde with big - use your imagination, this is a family column!? Carol Wayne and her ample assets appeared on many shows including "Bewitched", "I Dream of Jeannie" and "Hollywood Squares" but is best known for playing Matinee Lady against Art Fern (Johnny Carson on the "Tonight Show".") In real life, Carol actually had a very high IQ. She died in Mexico under suspicious circumstances, later ruled an accident.
