and his "dog", Spot, were fixtures on 1970's TV in Southern California.
Cal saturated the commercial breaks during the overnight hours on four of the seven television stations in Los Angeles, which had agreed to fill their overnight schedules by playing movies. Go See Cal and his "dog" Spot
was the gimmick, but his "dog" was always a tiger, orca, seal, giraffe, monkey, even a hippopotomus but never, never a dog. He also, being in Los Angeles, appeared in a number of TV shows including The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson and Emergency! Cal epitomized late 60's, early 70's California kitsch.
Cal died at his ranch this morning. Pour one out for Cal, and his dog, Spot.
