“…and Morgul as the Friendly Drelb.”

I realize that I’m showing my age here, but I’ve always missed the fast-paced hit-and-run sketch comedy of Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In from the late 1960s/early 1970s.  The sketch shows since then (Saturday Night Live, MADtv, etc.) went their own way for a different kind of audience.  Now maybe Laugh-in wouldn’t work in today’s world.  Certainly, the humor would be a little different, but I would think the whirlwind format would actually work in today’s ever-faster environment.

I was under age 10 when the show premiered so I’m pretty sure that most of the jokes went right over my head.  But it was so colorful and so fast-paced, I was mesmerized.

Some of of the most famous lines, quips and quotes:

“Blow in his ear and he’ll follow you anywhere! 

“Look that up in your Funk and Wagnall’s.”

“It’s time for the quickies…”    (I certainly never got this one at age 10)
