Kookie Talk from 77 Sunset Strip

Edd Brynes at Gerald Lloyd “Kookie” Kookson III on 77 Sunset Strip just personified cool. He had a lingo all of his own and because his character was so popular, we hung on his every word. And imitated him. Below are some classic expressions from Kookie Talk and a bonus pic for fans.

Antsville A place full of people
Chick in skins Woman in a fur coat
Front burner Current crisis
Germsville An illness – Buzzed by germsville means put in the hospital
Ginchiest Coolest
Heels on fire In a hurry
International intrigue dodge Private eye business
Lighting up the tilt sign Lying
Long green Money
Mushroom people People who come out at night to play
Smog in the noggin’ Memory loss
Stable the horses Park the cars
T.T.T.S. Take two their small
Washington A dollar

a dark seven bad week
Piling up the Z’s sleeping
