How shall we celebrate the wonderful NFL gladiator spectacle of the Super Bowl? With my favorite comedy clips and classic cartoons involving football, thank you very much. We'll start with The Four Marx Brothers!
And now to Our Gang. . .
Next up: the pride of Canada, SCTV. While Saturday Night Live was busy melting down publicly and gruesomely in 1980-1982, the performers and writing staff on SCTV took their formidable game to the next level. Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas moved on in 1982, soon to be followed by Catherine O' Hara, but Martin Short came on board and Eugene Levy, John Candy, Andrea Martin, John Candy and Joe Flaherty were still there and creating great, classic comedy, week after week.
And now for some classic cartoons, courtesy of stalwart comedy creators Tex Avery and Jack Kinney.
We finish with some sage wisdom from standup philosopher George Carlin.
