Michael Jackson’s Thriller Wasn’t Originally Called “Thriller”

Welcome to Friday! Time for some random facts!!

-- Did you know Betty Boop wasn’t always a person? Betty was originally a talking French poodle when she debuted in 1930. She didn't become a person until 1932!

-- A Hungarian fencer named Pal Szekeres won a bronze medal at the 1988 Olympics. Then he became disabled after a bus accident, and went on to win six medals in wheelchair fencing at the Paralympics. That makes him the only person who's won a medal at the Olympics before a disability, then won one at the Paralympics when he was disabled.

-- And finally, Michael Jackson's song "Thriller" was originally called "Starlight" and the hook went, "Give me some starlight! Starlight sun."
