Anyone else spot Weber Kettles in TV Shows?
« on: March 26, 2014, 04:44:33 PM »
I was watching "The Middle" tonight and saw an old avocado (maybe 60's???) kettle on the back porch.  No wooden handles, just plain metal.  Definitely 3 legs.

Is anyone taking count of old Weber Kettles that show up in TV shows and/or movies?

Yeah - I happened to catch that one tonight. Very nice 'cado, but I think it had a wood top handle. We do have a thread somewhere that captures the kettles we have seen on TV and in the movies. Brady Bunch, Breaking Bad, Bob Newhart - they show up frequently. Now, where is that thread...

As I recall, aren't Jamie Lee Curtis and Dan Aykroyd fairly tall people? That red kettle in my girl must have been elevated off camera I wonder..

Good eye. It sure does look like it. The grate in the breaking bad clip is also not standard.

I noticed a blue (OTS?) in Spiderman last night.  In Mary Janes back yard briefly.

Here is one I saw today while watching an old episode of Emergency from 1972 with my son. In case anyone wants to check it out, it was season 2 episode 19 "Boot".

Even the cast of EMERGENCY knew how to get it done!! Was the one paramedic scoping out that 22?  There was a black 22.5 kettle on The Wonder Years. It had the ring around the bowl so it may have been a Sears kettle. It had anachronistic wood bowl handles. That 70s Show, Red Forman had a red WBH 22 seen in one episode.
