[From "Kovacs Corner" on YouTube.com] - Before video tape, when a live prime time television series went on mid year hiatus, the networks would broadcast "summer replacements". During the year 1957, "The Ernie Kovacs Show" was the summer replacement program for "Caesar's Hour". Earlier known as "Your Show of Shows", it starred the legendary TV comedian Sid Caesar, with co-stars Carl Reiner and the late Howard Morris. With a writing staff that included among others Mel Brooks, Neil Simon, Danny Simon and Mel Tolkin, it was one of the premier comedy shows of it's time. This particular sketch satirizes one of the most popular programs of it's day "This is Your Life" which starred Ralph Edwards and it is, in my opinion, one of the funniest comedy sketches ever performed on television. Howard Morris' over-the-top performance as "Uncle Goopy" put an audience in stitches 50 years ago and he can do it again with equal ease today! After Kovacs' untimely death, Sid was called upon by director Stanley Kramer to replace Ernie in the role of "Melville Crump" in the1963 film "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World".
