Blue Boy was also a character in an episode of Dragnet. In this episode, the venerable detectives are after lsd users, as it has just been made illegal. Recently they have been having trouble with a young man who paints his face half blue, half gold and calls him self Blue Boy. As it so happened, he was first picked up by the detectives because he was in a park tripping and decided he was an ostrich, burying his head in the dirt.
Later in the episode, Blue Boy dies--not from LSD like they may have wanted you to think, but from what looks like a pile of speed in multiple color capsules. His friend doesn't notice him dead, because he's listening to Beatnik Jazz and eating paint off the end of his paintbrush. Oh dear.
Those crazy kids; what will they think of next?
