    I agree. That was a great show. The only thing that bothers me is how much they broke up and laughed at each other during a skit. That got kind of old. Harvey Korman was really underrated.

    Tim Conway was the funniest guy on TV then. He could bring the audience to tears without saying a word.

    I know what you're saying. That could get old but something about that show was fucking awesome. Bring back good memories of hanging at my grammies house.

    i loved that Tim Conway could make Harvey Korman break character every time, and so badly that Korman couldn't even speak.

    it was a special time on TV. so many great sitcoms, and one after the other.

    Agree, their was a certain innocence about television of the 70's. Couldnt wait to get the TV guide to see what was one the next week.

    Remember the MLB player Alan Wiggins? My father used to jokingly refer to him as "Alan Uh-Wiggins" (as in the way Tim Conway pronounced "Wiggins" in the ongoing skit)
