And here's some neat artwork based on a photo of Tim Considine and Tommy Kirk as Frank and Joe Hardy on The Mickey Mouse Club

In Psych there was a Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew quote in "You Can't Handle This Episode" deleted scene. 8)

Cool! I love Psych- I know there's an episode where Sean makes a reference to Parker Stevenson too (in relation to his role as Frank Hardy on The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries)

I like Psych, too as long as they keep it clean! :-\

Here's an interesting arts and crafts idea to do with The Hardy Boys books (I suppose this would be good for recycling old, falling apart copies as I don't think I would do this to any of my books just for fun...)

And one of The Tower Treasure and a Nancy Drew book (The Mystery at Lilac Inn)

Did you see the Robin, Nightwing and Joker stand-in artwork based on While The Clock Ticked? I posted it on the third page. :)

Yeah, I did but was in a rush at the time and didn't replay. Pretty funny, though. I'd like to see a coloured version.

Yeah, that would be an improvement. Even so, I just thought that was funny and way cool. 8)

Here are some scans from a 1977 issue of Tiger Beat with pictures and articles on Shaun Cassidy and Parker Stevenson and some appearances from Pamela Sue Martin as well. And a neat item for The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries show- they apparently had a contest to be on an episode of the show! Neat! (Of course, even if I was around then, I'm pretty sure I would have missed out on that opportunity since this magazine is generally aimed more at girls than boys...) ;D

Barbara Gordon has apparently referred to Batman and Robin as The Hardy Boys at least once :)

Just ran across these Rudy Nappi cover paintings for The Secret of Skull Mountain (The Hardy Boys #27) and The Ghost of Blackwood Hall (Nancy Drew #25) - just thought it was cool. 8)

Nappi's a good artist, eh? Here's some of his non-Hardy Boys work...

Yeah.....definitely not Hardy Boys material- whoa! :o
But Nappi definitely is good at what he does. (or did, as the case may be)

(Here's a 1980 airing of a British sketch comedy show called LWT with a parody of The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries (it starts at 20:15) - it does get kinda risque though, but they were spot on in some things- lol)
