    This was APPOINTMENT TV back in the day! Every Thursday at 9:00PM PST,we were there an ready for Flip to just floor us all with his fantastic humor and great characters. I just loved the man dearly! His last TV appearance was in the “What Is Hip?” opening of “The Drew Carey Show”. it was great to see him,if only for a moment. Rest in Peace,Flip. And thanks for posting,gladteck.

    I hate to say this but I had a dress with the same colors in it, that was the style back then and we really thought this was ‘fly’. Geraldine was the coolest act on television and this show was highly rated…. I remember this episode with the ‘telephone pocket book’ hilarious!!!!!! :D

    Flip was so funny, way before his time! All of us suffered a loss when he passed on.
    I remember sitting in the car with my dad listing to the Liston- Ali fight on the car radio because it came in better in the car than in the house. I’m 58 years old, white and southern , and I doubt there will ever be another heavyweight champ like Muhammed Ali. He really was the greatest! Not all people from the south are racist, Thanks for posting all these clips of Flip, and especially this one!

    “Telephone pocketbook”: talk about looking into the future!

  20. GaryG660 says:

    Yes, Flip Wilson was a wonderfully talented comedian. He was able to make everyone laugh without the F word in every sentence.

  21. lenny301 says:

    I loved Flip. My aunt would fall on the floor laughing at him when he came on TV.

  22. Kind67 says:

    Sadly he’s no longer alive, but during the 70s, he was really hot–but not as hat as Geraldine!!! ;-) Seriously, though, he was a great comedian but he had a genuine warm-hearted persona, sort of like if Perry Como was a comedian instead of a singer. Geraldine was sort of an alter-ego where he could tell more hard-edged jokes without spoiling his likeable persona. Flip was one of my favorite comedians of that time and I miss him very much.

    Thanks for posting! Love the Flip Wilson Show

  24. sallythewerewolf says:

    Flip is sadly no longer with us–but it’s fantastic to see so many young people meetinghim and getting to know his work through YouTube! You MUST listen to “The Devil Made Me Buy This Dress”.

    They called him Sweet Chariot (because he was always swinging low). Lol.
