After "That's Incredible" (1980) surfaced with the same format as "Real People", MAD Magazine summed it up well in their parody show: "That's Real Incredible, People".

Storyline

A prehistoric ancestor to "America's Funniest Home Videos," this show traveled America looking for the funny, the heart-warming, and the downright bizarre. The various segments were narrated by the hosts of the show, and featured things like The Flat Earth Society, a man who could actually run up a 20 ft brick wall, and an old woman who could put the tip of her nose in her mouth. This show defined a genre which would be followed later by shows like "That's Incredible" and "Games People Play." Written by Afterburner <aburner@erols.com>

Nagging, fragmented memory of segment.
8 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I only remember one segment of this show with any clarity (I was 10-15 years old). There was a guy who bought an oil refinery or military platform off the coast of somewhere (California?) and turned it into his own little country. He even printed his own stamps and money.

I have been searching for this place for years with no luck. Can anyone help?

Shows like this which covered different subjects are rich with source material for research. I teach high school and finding this "country" or history of it would be a colorful addition to curriculum : )

Thank you.
