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>

Bin There
14 February 2007 | by See all my reviews

What may not have been apparent was that they did not produce all their own film. My 15 minutes of fame was on real people. There was a river race each year called the Beaver River Rat Race. Actually it wasn't really a race you did well if you made it to the end. About 500 boats(using the term loosely) would go down the river in April water temperature 34 degrees F. The big problem was going over the dams the easy one was about 4-6 ft and the big one 10-15 feet. The boats were built around themes like a beer can, a living room sofa and all, or a jeep(that was so well built if it were parked on the street you would not realize it wasn't real, unfortunately it came apart going over the low dam). Our boat a pirate boat with firing cannons was featured because we rolled end for end going over the high dam. The footage was actually taken for a CBC program. The event was fairly large with 30,000 people coming to watch. Regards
