R. Crumb! Underground comic hero (I still have a few old Zap! Comix floating around).
I only vaguely remember this one, but there was a short insert seen more often:Does anyone remember this skit? We see a king played by Morgan Freeman lying in bed. And his servants, played by Jim Boyd and Luis Avalos were in the kitchen preparing the king's breakfast. Until they spotted a note from the king saying, "Bring me my breakfast in bed." The servants couldn't read the breakfast part, but knew it started with BR. At first, they thought it was BRICKS, so they collected a pile of bricks from the chimney, placed them on a tray, approached the king and said, "Your Majesty, your bricks in bed!" And they dumped the bricks on the poor king's lap. The angry king said calmly, "I suggest you go back and READ THAT NOTE AGAIN!" The servants tried to think of another BR word and though BRANCHES. They went outside and cut some branches off a nearby tree, placed them on the same tray, and approached the king saying, "Your Majesty, your branches in bed!" And they dumped the dirty branches all over the poor king and now his bed was full of bricks and branches. The even angrier king replied, "I'll give you a hint, IT'S SOMETHING YOU EAT!" The servants tried to think of a BR word you eat and thought, BROCCOLI! They approached the king with a tray of broccoli and dumped it all over the king. The frustrated king said nothing and started nibbling on the broccoli while lying in a bed full of bricks, branches, and broccoli. The servants return to the kitchen and said, "I wonder when he's going to eat his breakfast?"
During his one season, Bill Cosby enjoyed playing corporate big shots and used car salesmen. Anything to get behind a desk and light up his cigars.Does anyone remember this skit? We see a copyright office run by Bill Cosby. Rita Moreno comes in and says she's a manager of a new rock band and they needed a name. Bill offered her the name, THE SENSATIONS. Rita didn't think that sounded right. Next Bill offered THE INVENTIONS. And Rita thought that sounded like they were scientists. Then Billion l suggested, THE VACATIONS, for after hearing their music, people will want to take a vacation. Rita didn't like that either. Bill thought maybe if he heard the band's music, he could pick a good name. Rita invited the band in that consisted of wild hippies and they started playing their music. "I got just the name," said Bill. "THE POLLUTIONS. Because your music stinks!" The band actually liked that name and went with that.
