Morning flashback: “The Mad Painter” from Sesame Street
In the late 1970s and early 1980s, actor Paul Benedict, who later went on to play Harry Bentley on The Jeffersons, played “The Mad Painter” in a short lived series of skits in which a silent painter paints the number 2 through 11 wherever he found space for them.
Check out this awesome TARDIS fan art from an 18 year old Peter Capaldi from 1976
The striking monochromatic painting of the TARDIS on an alien world comes from the May 1976 issue of the Doctor Who International Fan Club Magazine - the same issue which also features a short article from Capaldi the younger on the show’s opening titles.
The undisputed King of the Drunks, Foster Brooks regularly appeared on the Dean Martin Celebrity Roasts in the 70’s. As his “Lovable Lush” character, Brooks usually portrayed a conventioneer who had had a few too many drinks — not falling-down drunk, but inebriated enough that he would hilariously mix up his words.
His comedy routines as the lovable, but hilarious, drunk, were a testament to the art of comedy without the need for profanity or any other excessive blue humor. Here, he appears on Steve Allen’s television show, where it’s clear that at least one of the other guests isn’t familiar with Brooks and his comedy stylings.
