Neat-o! The CBS Early Show Goes Retro

The CBS Early Morning Show's producers must be big retrophiles, because this isn't the first time they've profiled previous decades on their program, but this week they're really going all out. Today's show featured the 50s along with interviews of former child television stars and a performance by Little Richard.



Harry Smith, cutie patootie weatherman Dave Price, and the rest of the Early Show family donned 50s clothing and wigs and snacked on TV dinners in a very mid-century modern living room. You can read all about it and watch video clips here.

Tune in the rest of the week when the crew highlights the 60s (tomorrow), the 70s (Wednesday) and the 80s (Thursday.) TV time travel here we come!

Get Michelle's JCrew Retro Look

When Michelle Obama appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno a week or two ago wearing these classy duds, I was tempted to call JCrew up and ask them what items she was wearing. I had poked around on their site but couldn't find her graphic top. Happily, JCrew already did the work for me and they're now promoting her retro ensemble on their site. The yellow cardigan is $89.99, the dotted pencil skirt is $148, and the gold and brown deco tank is $99.99. The pin must be Michelle's own. Get 'em while you can!

It's Funk Soul Brother, Charlie Brown!

What happens when you combine Fatboy Slim with clips from vintage Peanuts specials?

You get this, a perfectly coordinated and very cool video. I think it even trumps the 1980s Flashbeagle special.
