Surrealism, eh?
The jokes in this show were so illogical they achieved a kind of epic weirdness. There were the ongoing interviews with the beaver on the back of the Canadian nickel (played by a guy in a beaver suit), the Society for the Suppression of Vowels ("Mr. Thrxsct, good evening." "Xysrthck"). And don't forget the communist skyjacker who made Superman fly him to Cuba (the shot of Che Guevera riding Superman - with really,really bad back projection behind it - has to be seen to be believed). I was only 11 at the time, so maybe it seemed funnier than it was. But even the opening was ahead of it's time. The names were read in a sort of backwards/forwards order, then the announcer yelled "Terrific" - in a totally bored & sarcastic voice. Irony on screen, years before SNL! Does this gem of a show still exist somewhere for rediscovery?
