Series cast summary:
Douglas Maida Douglas Maida ...  Audience Member #1 2 episodes, 1982-1983


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 <>

I liked the pictures segment
18 January 2007 | by scrmcuratorSee all my reviews

The main thing I remember of this show was the funny photos segment they did each week. I thought sure some of the pix they showed would be on the 'net but I haven't found any. The two I remember in particular was a picture of a one-way sign pointing into a graveyard, and a photo of a man standing in front of a geyser (might have been a fire hydrant) in a way that made it look like he was relieving himself. If anybody knows where I could find some of those photos, please let me know!

Even as a 10-year-old I thought the show was a bit corny.. It'd never make it today. I remember one episode where they sent Skip Stevenson to a chili cook-off. For the rest of the show they were setting off explosions behind him, which I thought was just mean and not at all funny.
