"I read in the newspapers they are going to have 30 minutes of intellectual stuff on television every Monday from 7:30 to 8. to educate America. They couldn't educate America if they started at 6:30."
Groucho was an amazing wit. He always had that unexpected angle that made you do a mental double-take.
I’ve always loved this quote of his: “I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.”
Gregory's take is great. That's the nicest way of educating oneself than gluing to the TV sets.
Let's not forget PBS, Smithsonian Channel, Sesame Street, and Discovery Channel.
When I read that Groucho Marx quote, I wasn’t thinking about PBS, etc. Instead, I was thinking about police dramas like the old NYPD Blue or some of the crazy contemporary sitcoms.
Yes, Rawhide and shows like I Love Lucy were real gems, never to be forgotten.
There was a golden age in Hollywood in the 30s and 40s; but there was also a golden age of tv as well in the 50s and 60s.
These golden ages used character actors and not just vacuous chiselled models.
The golden age of tv peaked with the original Star Trek series which was produced by Desilu (otherwise known as Ricky and Lucy.)
After that tv died with the continual use of characterless models.
I also like The Andy Griffith Show, especially Aunt Bee and Barney and Floyd.
Another show that I like is Mama’s Family. Vicki Lawrence is absolutely brilliant in that role.
I forgot about Carol Burnett. I really enjoy her as Eunice and crack up laughing when she and Vicki Lawrence start arguing. One of the best Mama’s Family episodes was when Vinton and Naomi got married and Eunice wanted to sing her solo at the wedding. Did you ever see that episode? Oh yes, I always laugh at how Vicki Lawrence dresses on that show too. Her dresses, support hose, purple sweater, and white shoes all crack me up.
I barely remember that episode. I think I saw it on a rerun or favorite moments show. Hilarious as can be. Their fights were funny. Carol Burnett said the idea of the family came from her own experiences growing up.
