:p Those are good...nearly wet my pants on a few of them. Its a shame so many of the old entertainers are now gone... they could still do humor without being overly vulgar or dirty. Paul Lynde was a real hoot and Don Knots was a strange little man.
Thanks for the little trip down memory lane :D .

The original HollyWood Squares was great...along with Newlywed Show....and Family Feud.
I loved watching the old school crowd on TV. They were very funny and didn't have to do stupid stunts and read from a script...
That was real "Life Unscripted"
