Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In

By Persona Non Grata

First seen as a special September 9, 1967, this innovative, trend setting new comedy show was an instant success and the top-rated TV show for its first two seasons. Its humor was based on its lightning-fast pace, sight gags, catch phrases ("You bet your bippy," "Here come de judge," "Beautiful downtown Burbank," "Sock it to me") and repeating routines. Some favorites were:

  • Lily Tomlin as the nasal voiced telephone operator with a snorting laugh.
  • Arte Johnson as the German soldier seen peering from behind a plant saying, "Verrrry interesting."
  • Ruth Buzzi as a crotchety old lady with a hairnet and baggy stockings who whacked an equally derelict old man with her umbrella when he sat down beside her on a park bench.
  • Goldie Hawn as a ditzy, giggling blonde.
  • Richard Nixon in a surprise appearance saying, "Sock it to me."

Your Memories Shared!

I am in love with Henry Gibson! I enjoy Laugh-in because of its political humor, and how it reflected society in the 60's. I was not born until 3 years after the show ended (I'm only 25), but the thing I love best about Laugh-In is Henry Gibson. The show just was not the same for me after he left. Mr. Gibson, I love you!
