To Josh, Matt & MaxNY:
In the mid-1960's, we moved from the city of Philadelphia to the northern suburbs of Bucks County. Thanks to the installation of a rotating TV antenna ("Tenna-Rotor"), on most days we could pull in the signals for NEW YORK TV! Channels 5, 9, & 11 were like having MAD Magazine on the ol' B&W - much more hip than anything I'd grown up with on the tube. And so I discovered Sandy Becker, Chuck McCann, Officer Joe & The Three Stooges, Wonderama, etc. Soupy Sales doing "Philo Kvetch." Sandy Becker was the coolest of all of them; McCann was a close second. Memories of Sandy in full Victorian Brit Army Officer mufti (with shades), lip-synching to "The Jerk" (by The Larks) - this performance would morph into multiplying panels of 16-20 identical images. Very hi-tech for the time. Also dug Sandy's character, K. Lastima; very un-PC, but you could get away with it in those days.
I'd give anything for some footage of Chuck McCann doing "Bob Cummings" (usually on Merv or Mike Douglas).
Thanks to all for this exercise in nostalgic wool gathering.
