Character development is key to all good writing. It must be difficult to introduce multiple characters all at once. Tonight I smiled at the best trio to ever appear on my television set. I give props to the writers that gave them life.
It wasn’t the Brady girls or the Brady boys.
I wasn’t watching Three’s Company.
I wasn’t laughing at cartoons. It wasn’t Huey, Duey and Luey or Ed, Edd N Eddy.
The Power Puff girls are closer but they are from my children’s childhood. My favorite trio is from my own childhood. Although they existed long before I was born.
It wasn’t The Three Stooges or the Andrew sisters.
They were a cast of three among a cast of thousands. That’s why their lasting impression is so powerful. They were the best in the company.
They had a great stylist, vocal coach and choreographer.
They are in the story for just a moment.
They had only a few lines and spoke in unison.
I like to think they helped develop my own writing style…welcoming, humorous and memorable.
