  • Notes

    • Kate Smith almost walked off the show after reading an early sketch idea which had her portraying Oliver Hardy to Tom Smothers' Stan Laurel. In a script meeting, she demanded to know who wrote the piece and junior writer Bob Einstein (aka Super Dave) raised his hand. She stormed from the room and had to be persuaded to return to the show, being promised that the script idea would be abandoned. That same idea would be resurrected years later only with Dom DeLuise in the roll of Oliver Hardy.
