The 1/2 Hour Comedy Hour

Hey, remember that time when Rod Hull and Emu were on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson?

No?

Well, they were.

That is one of the most incongruous things I have ever seen, and I only saw it because of a reply to a tweet on someone else’s timeline pointing to this article. Have a read, it’s well worth your time.

In it there’s mention of Rod Hull’s short-lived stint on the ABC network show The 1/2 Hour Comedy Hour, which also starred a young Arsenio Hall.

I love that this promo ran in the middle of The Making of Superman II.

The show itself aired on Tuesday nights for one season.
