Marking the 35th Anniversary of Animal House

Saturday marks the 35th anniversary of the release of "National Lampoon's Animal House," the college movie to end all college movies, the film that taught a generation how to throw a toga party and how to impersonate a zit, all while cementing the late legend John Belushi's image as the ultimate party animal.

A permanent mark in my memory as I remember Animal House and watching filming of the scene where Belushi climbed the ladder--peeking into the sorority house on University Ave in Eugene. Memories. Did see the movie trucks setup at Hayward Field, but didn't get to stop and watch.

TOGA. TOGA. TOGA.

2. It's not just funny it's important

You can still feel the vibe in Eugene and other college towns after 35 years . A classic classic film .

3. "Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?"

"From now on, they're on double-secret probation!"

"A pledge pin? On your uniform?"

And the most quoted line of all here at DU: "Thank you sir may I have another?".

8. Flounder: "I can't believe I threw up in front of Dean Wormer."

Boon: "Face it, Kent. You threw up *on* Dean Wormer."

Timeless stuff.

15. Just think, If Belushi was still around...

...there would have been a sequel or two. I mean there could have been if it had the audience some claimed it had.
