Any connection to the movie from the 90s?
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

It's got to be pretty bad to be worse than Heil Honey, I'm Home!

Or Australia's Naughtiest Home Videos, which literally got cancelled midway through the pilot

I'm vaguely remembering something.

Didn't Jackie Gleason once do a show that was so bad he issued a public apology?

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

This show was in the US and also cancelled midway through its first broadcast.

In australia, "Cheers" reruns.

In the US case, a black screen with live organ music, according to wikipedia. An emergency procedure that hadn't been used in 20 years.

Thanks for this. It's funny, watching Jackie, it is amazing how he is still funny and how he can sort of engage you with a story.

Yeah.

Heck, he could have had a good show just sitting around telling stories like that.

Remember the Handy Housewife Helper sketch?
There was a point where Norton says, sorta under his breath, "this might be too sophisticated for 'em"

Cracked me up.
