    Absolutely hilarious! Do you have the one where Don Knotts, Tom Poston, and Louie Nye played window-glass manufacturers?

    Well and accurately said.

    Are you insane?

    Are you kidding – Jose Jimenez sounds , looks and acts like all the Mexicans I know !
    This was when TV was real — not the politically correct crap we have now !

    David Letterman USED to be the new Steve Allen when he was on NBC. He just didn’t have enough talent or class to sustain that label.

    Sorry, but it’s extremely offensive. “innocence” = dimwitted, almost child-like. There’s nothing “good” about that “stereotype”. It’s a perfect example of Hollywood’s paternalistic colonialism that was rampant back in those days.

    keith olberman is the new steve allen, but not as brilliant.

    I find Bill Dana’s “José Jiménez” character kind of right-on; there’s a touching sort of innocence in the way he looks at the camera in the guise of a Mexican, which reveals something about the Mexican stereotype – the good side of it – it’s not offensive.

    José Jiménez, by the way, was one of the finest singers of ranchera music…

    Steve Allen, Louie Nye, Tom Posten, Gabe Dell…man, those were the days. Anyone who thinks David Letterman has anything new to offer never saw the old Steve Allen show. (To those who know, the holes are probably still in the ceiling.)
