The only fifi I heard of is somebody's pet dog

Blue's extremely far and wild guess : The actress' (who played Lily - I forgot her name) nickname/pet name in real life. That makes Lily & Fifi - the same person. (Hmmmm........why do I think I've come across this before....)

I just knew you'd enjoy this one.

Perhaps this weekend some clues are in order. There's no deep, backstage backstory involved here. You can, and should, pull this answer directly off the screen—though not necessarily from a single episode.

You also seem to have boxed yourself in. Think outside of it.

Hey all,
This is stretching it a bit, but I beleive that Lily and Fifi are the only girls that Artie has gone out with and kissed W/o the help or presence of Jim in one form or another. Lily obviously refers to Lily Fortune from TNOT Big Blast. And I believe that Fifi is the secret service woman who helps Artie and Jim with the toy chicken in TNOT Feathered Fury, who Artie will be in a loving embrace before Jim's emergency flare interrupts their date. I know that Artie has kissed dozens of other women (and he was due because it seemed that Jim got them all in the 1st season!!!!), but they always seem to be when he is on a double date with Jim. Granted he's been on dates on the train, when Jim comes in and interrupts, but Jim is involved in one way or another. For example, Loreli in TNOT Skulls was involved with Jim before she "dated" Artie, Tryst In TNT Fr. Loveless Died wanted nothing to do W/ Artie's Dinner for two, tpyt in TNOT Headless Woman would rather watch Beauweevils mate than engage in a date with Artie (foolish female), and lastly, tpyt that was having a luncheon date with Artie was pretty miffed when he had to leave in a hurry to help Jim that she sent him his escargot via the mail for a choking surprise in TNOT Deathmasks.

Just why is this so obvious?

Okay—now I really am outta here.

What did you ladies have in mind? Never mind—this is a family board. But an old geezer can dream.

It's a sure sign that you truly are ladies, when you forge ahead with good humor while the Quizmeister spins your minds around.

How about an old-fashioned Laredo rubdown?? I'll bring the horse, Blue, you grab a rope! smirkle, No, Elaine, you may not rescue him a la Artemus. Lily and Fifi - sounds like somebody's pet dogs. Barmaids? Dates? Ladies of the Night? Somebody? Anybody?

I got all excited thinking I had broken my streak of cluelessness from the last few weeks, but no luck.

I thought that perhaps Mala Powers, who played Lily Fortune, supplied the voice for the cartoon character of Fifi La Fume. That would be in keeping with ccb's recent quiz question about actors who supplied voices for cartoon characters. Unfortunately, I discovered that Kathie Soucie is the voice of Fifi.

I make this wrong guess knowingly, just to show that I have not given up completely. (I thought it was so good; it seems a shame that it isn't right.)

Forgive my seeming crabbiness, but now you've got me up a tree: Who the heck is Fifi La Fume?

Fifi La Fume is the female counterpart of Pepe Le Pew, the French skunk of the Warner Brothers cartoons (voiced by the incomparable Mel Blanc).

Well, I'll be damned. La Grande Elaine tightens the rope again.

Good night, all. A new day soon dawns. Tomorrow I'll be interested to see if anyone has put together all the clues I've been merrily strewing under your feet.

Okay: Twenty-four hours later, same blind alley. I get the message. Do you?

It's Lily Crabtree and Fifi La Grande you've been looking for. There now: That's it. I can't make it plainer. Where did we see them, and what did they share in common?

And may the fastest poster win!

Well, with all this talk about skunks, the only skunk I can think of is the one on AG's head in TNOT Firebrand. Sorry, I can't think of the character he was playing, but he was a rough character with a skunk skin cap on his head.

As for Lily and how she relates, who know?

Am I getting closer? Or I be farther?

I'm dedicated to making wild guesses this week. I suddenly recalled that our heroes have gone down blind alleys in pursuit of bad guys from time to time. I can remember at least one instance where the villain disappeared through a revolving theatre sign at the end of one of those alleys. I can't recall the eps, but could it be that these ladies graced the posters?

The Egyptian Queen? Where a poster of some female performer served as an entrance to the bad guy's place. I wasn't sure of the name on that poster, Tiki, or Fifi. Sound wasn't good and eyesight also failing me. That's the closest I can get.

Come to think of it, if both are what were mentioned, Lily and Fifi must be the performers on the posters that doubles as entrances/exits.

Congratulations, and a shared-three-way Anabella,

to Elaine, for puzzling out the riddle,
to Roger, for providing one answer, and
to Blue, for offering the other.

Now that wasn't really so bad, was it?

See you—well, in a few hours, with a new Quiz.
