Friday Fictioneers – De Plane! De Plane!

(Author’s note: For lack of a better term, July was hell. Lots of stuff going on, and on top of all of it…I got sick. Hence why I haven’t posted in 3-4 weeks. But I’m back, and here we go!)

De Plane! De Plane! 

by Miles H. Rost

“I won’t do it!”

“Herv, they love you. Everyone loves you.”

“They think I’m short. A cute doll! The audience…they love Tattoo! They don’t love Herve.”

“What about your fans from the Bond films?”

“Nick Nack! That’s all I’m known as!”

His agent looked at him and shook his head.

“You do realize if you do this event, you’ll be able to help children, right?”

He looked up, and his countenance eased.

“The children want to see Tattoo, Nick Nack, and Herve Villechaize. All together. One package.”

Herve smiled, as he slid off the chair.

“It’s for the children.”

Herve Villechaize, in the earlier days, would visit crime scenes where children were affected, and he would help comfort them.

  1. A lovely tribute, and a sad story, too. Stereotyped and banded as his character on a fiction show. So sad. I always loved his character on Fantasy Island though. He had a way with humor.

  2. Always enjoyed the program, and Herve. I was sad to read, some time ago, that his life didn’t end happily; he certainly provided entertainment for all of us.

  3. I’ve never seen Fantasy Island, but I remember, as a kid, reruns came on after something I watched. I always watched to see “De Plane! De Plane!” Then, I would change the channel.

    Wasn’t there a movie made about him recently?
