TV satire at its funniest!
SCTV was a real gem...consistently funny without resorting to cheap shots or bathroom humor to make you laugh out loud. One of the funniest bits in this incarnation of SCTV was John Hemphill as Happy Marsden, drunken children's show host whose show was filmed in a bar. When the show would begin, Happy would get the bartender to change the channel on the TV above the bar to a show called "Six-Gun Justice" which was a take-off on the old serial westerns of the '40's and '50's. He had a puppet sidekick who resembled Ollie of "Kukla, Fran and Ollie" fame. The puppet couldn't talk, but only made flapping noises with his rather large beak. The whole premise was so bizarre, but when you start to think about the kids' show hosts from your childhood, you may realize that probably more than a few of them had tossed back a couple of shots before introducing that Popeye cartoon. The Schmenge Brothers (Yosh and Stan, played by John Candy and Eugene Levy) were also incredibly funny. We will not see their like again.
