Looney Tunes Collector Has The Most Bugs Bunny's We've Ever Seen (Passions - E1)

** It's National Bugs Bunny Day and OGTV is celebrating the rascally rabbit with a story about a Bugs Bunny fan who is up to his rabbit ears in collectibles. Watch now...it's a perfectly innnteresting story! **

Do you have something in your life you are so passionate about that you would be willing to dedicate time, money and room(s) in your living space to?

If your answer is a resounding Yes!, meet Laurence Sheinman, whose passion for Looney Tunes cartoons, and particularly Bugs Bunny, is so over the top it will have you asking, "What's up Doc?".


That rascally rabbit has always had a special pull on Laurence. "Bugs Bunny has the cool of Humphrey Bogart and a dash of Jerry Lewis vaudeville." It's that connection to a character that is at the heart of this premiere episode of the new OnlyGood TV Series, "Passions", which is all about people and their unique hobbies, skills, and obsessions.

Laurence doesn't consider himself a collector – that would put him in the company of those who poo-poo anything not in "mint-condition" – but just a guy who likes the adventure of the hunt and finding the fun things that remind him of those carefree Saturday mornings as a kid when watching the cartoon lineup was the best way to kick-off the weekend.

What started out as fun outings with his wife Jessica and infant son Adam years ago, has blossomed into a collection of over 1,000(?) items, big and small, ornamental and functional, valuable and just … unique. Jessica has adopted the curator role, and a life partner's perspective of the special things that draw and keep two people together. "Its harmless fun, and as long as he's not collecting wives, I don't really care."

Laurence dreams of one day writing a book about his special hobby if he could somehow avoid one inevitable life obstacle….downsizing.

ABOUT: PASSIONS Some people have a strong affinity for the things that they love…. a favorite TV show, a favorite movie franchise, maybe even a favorite cartoon character… or maybe a unique collection of shoes, dolls, baseball cards….anything that shows an extraordinary passion for something near and dear to their heart. In each episode we will meet a new person who collects a certain type of object. The audience will learn the reasons for their obsessions and what their family and friends think about their collections. Audiences will be drawn to these rare collections, and the unique personalities of the collectors.

Blind Waiter Serves Up Diner Classics and Life Lessons

** As we wind down to the final days of this difficult year, OGTV is tipping our hat to all of the essential workers on the front lines with this uplifting story about a New Jersey man who has found a way to do this difficult job for years, even without his eyesight! **

The flickering neon sign reflects eerily off the aging, chrome exterior; a long smooth marble counter with spinning stools draws your gaze left and right as you enter; the checkered linoleum floor seeps under the rows of back-to-back leather booths enveloped by the rain streaked wrap-around windows. You may think you've entered a typical American roadside eatery, but your experience here will be anything but ordinary.

You have just stepped into the Bendix Diner, a staple in Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey since the 1940's. It's no surprise that The Bendix can serve up a sizzling Burger with deep fried onion rings and a frothy chocolate shake. What is unique about this meal is the waiter who delivers it to your table – his name is John Diakakis, and he is blind.
