looney comedy from back in the day
OMG ed beagly JR
This show spawned Fernwood 2night starring Martin Mull who played Barth Gimble. He was the twin brother of Garth Gimble who was a character on Mary Hartman Mary Hartman That was killed by getting stabbed to death by a Christmas tree falling on him!!!! LOL!!
Good god I have not seen this in ages.
What? She was just doing a skit on her show to be funny…
Wow talk about retro! I haven’tseen this show since I was a kid!!! What’s up w/ Carol Burnette playing the Mary Heartman part? Did the orgional woman leave???
Martin Mull (Garth Gimble) in great new bio (Charlton Heston: An Incredible Life: Revised Edition) at amazon!
Oh man…I even owned (still at my parents house) the record album by Mary Kay Place!! LOL…I wonder if it’s worth something now!
why would you need a laugh track.you must be as dizzy as mary to think that.
Like many others, this show was ahead of its time. Its a spoof of soap operas and their outlandish plots. Problem was, in the ’70s, people were still addicted to soaps and weren’t ready to spoof them. If there was a laugh track to this show, people would have understood its purpose.
you can purchase copies online
Used to love this as a teen. Wish I could find full episodes online..man,what a great show.
Debralee Scott RIP.
Oh Lord–Mary Hartman sure was nutty (that Louise Lasser was a nutbag both on and off her show), but Twin Peaks was on a whole other level.
God, I miss the old days!! TV isn’t worth plugging in these days.
Martin Mull (Garth Gimble on Mary Hartman) admitted in a 1978 interview with Newsweek that he never yelled in reallife. He is naturally lobotomized and weird for it. Count yourself as normal if you get angry and yell on slim occasion.
This and Twin Peaks had to be the two weirdest shows on TV.
As I review some of these old shows I watched as a kid, it’s becoming very clear why I’m so maladjusted.
Wow this show brings back so many memories…from childhood…especially the opener…and Dody died today…seems almost like simpler time.
amen, to that!!!
Rest in Peace Dody; the lord allowed you to reach maturity on this earth. God Bless, right after George Carlin….who’s next? 6-23-08
Ha, yep. I used to watch this when I was a teenager. Weird but funny.
OMG! My family actually used to watch this. Crazy then and crazy now. LOL
