    For those who can’t read rebuses (rebi?):

    “Dear Muz Melba-
    Do you care at all for me?
    My heart pines for you.
    You are a peach!
    We’d make a swell pair.

    Love, Rufus."

    I hope she says (image of Becky) instead of (image of proboscis)!

    My other favorite game show from the 1960’s. besides Jeopardy, was Concentration that used rebuses. You had to solve them. Alas it didn’t make it to be reborn like Jeopardy was.

    For those who can’t read rebuses (rebi?)

    You had it right the first time. I tried to find “rebi” in my dictionaries, that spelling isn’t there.
    *
    The rebus is presented in the style that was used on the game shows “Concentration” (1958-73, NBC; 1973-78, syndicated) and “Classic Concentration” (1987-91, NBC). The solutions were based on pronunciation, rather than adding or subtracting letters. (I wish they’d bring that game show back!)

    Why an image of Becky?

    Thank you for the translation Mr. Gonzalez. I wouldn’t have understood the Rebus otherwise. Also its nice to see the lovely Ms. Melba again. I wouldn’t mind another storyline with Rufus if she was in it.

    So that’s the Mayor Melba that he was trying to marry to collect a 100 grand. Here I thought she was an older woman.
