"I Spy" with Robert Culp & Bill Cosby  was Wonderfulness. What is wonderfulness?  If you're here, you probably already know.  It is that magic mixture of excellence, charm and wit that was the television series "I Spy"

And the whole thing was put together by creative genius Sheldon Leonard, who was the aesthetic force behind “I Spy.”  He  dreamed up the concept, determined how to do it, hired the actors, writers, directors and producers. The taste, the selection of material and the decisions of how to get it done were his.


But  WONDERFULNESS also represents a rapport that transcends mere camaraderie.  It's about chemistry, total trust and support of the other in all things, without regard to self.  A friendship that doesn't break, even under the greatest pressure.  Intuitive intelligence.  Balance.  Using words as entertainment.  Loyalty and commitment through ebb and flow.  A mutual instinct both for the whimsical and the grave.  Understanding.

We ask your prayers / Good Thoughts for the recovery of a gallant lady, MAUREEN ASPELL.  A direct descendant of the 16th century “pirate queen” Grace O'Malley, Maureen is an honor to her family, and dearly loved by all.

These pages show the many wonderful sides of the late Robert Culp as he dazzled us with his talent, charm and ability to completely encompass a character.  Our greatest tribute is the storyboard of his dynamic script for "So Long Patrick Henry," one of the finest pieces of writing in television history.
