Flashback Friday Monday: What’s New, Pussycat?

Little did you know that an episode of The Mod Squad was filmed on location at Reston’s Lake Anne Village Center. Here, a brilliantly disguised Huggy Bear attempts to determine if the moniker “Tub Toys” is actually street code for some illicit substance.

Actually, just what kind of tub toys are these? They look like they’d absorb a bathtub full of water and grow to the size of small import sedans. Meanwhile, the little boy about to take a gainer off the whimsical statue in the background is by now probably about to retire after 35 years with the Federal Office of Accounting Ledger Oversight. But he remembers that statue. Not to mention the giant floral tub toy that haunts his nightmares to this day.
