Live, original comedy originally featuring Sid Caesar and Imogene Coca. Carl Reiner and Howard Morris joined the show later. Two of the great skits on the show were "The Hickenloopers", a battling husband-and-wife team and the clock in the Bavarian town of Baverhoff which always broke when the hour was struck. Written by

I was a little kid when this show was on, but I remember it fondly. It was hilarious -- a great melting pot of comic genius. Caesar and Coca were wonderful as were all the supporting players including Reiner.
The show was marvelously innovative in the early days of TV comedy and outdoes any of the later imitations such as SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE. Movie and TV satires, zany skits, and all sorts of funny mayhem reigned in Caesar's court with Coca as queen. Some of the best pieces are available in the movie 10 FROM YOUR SHOW OF SHOWS. If you get a chance to see that, do so. It is great humor from the innocent beginnings of live TV
