Daily Trivia – 2/29/12

Question: On The Dukes of Hazzard, what was the name of Roscoe’s Bassett Hound?


Last Question: Who signed off his show, “Champagne wishes and caviar dreams”?

Answer: Robin Leach

Before there was MTV’s Cribs, there was Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous hosted by Robin Leach. The show aired from 1984 to 1995. In the final season, Leach cohosted the show with Shari Belafonte, and the show was renamed Lifestyles with Robin Leach and Shari Belafonte.

Many actors and comedians parodied Leach’s English accented voice. And I’m sure that just about every one of us had also done a “Robin Leach” voice at one time or another.

Robin Leach now lives in Las Vegas and writes for the daily VegasDeluxe.com web site.

Here are a couple of segments of Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous:
