Only from the mind of TimConway
26 February 2006 | by (somewhere in CA) – See all my reviews

This is a one-of-a-kind thing, a sight gag gone berserk. Loved Tim Conway for years in McHale & with Carol B, Harvey & Vicki, this is like the icing on the cake. If for anything just to bring him together with the late Vincent Schiavelli for this short little ditty which did as much for golf pros of America as anything with the possible exception of Tiger (golf instruction increased a whopping 17% within three months of the release of this video, but the following is probably one of the all- time best rim shots... "Leonard, why don't you consider getting to bed a little early tonight? You wouldn't want to miss a visit from the IQ fairy."
