At the start of this episode (and throughout) of Laugh-in, Jim Backus provides a Mr. Magoo cameo. It's a very strange looking version of Magoo, but Magoo none the less. Mr. Magoo appears as Uncle Sam in what is, apparently, a dig at American foreign policy and the Vietnam War, indicating that Washington decision makers are old, blind and incompetent.
Here's an ultra rare look at what an entire, unabridged, episode of Beany & Cecil looked like, commercials and all. A treat from somebody's private stash of 8mm films.
