ROWAN AND MARTIN’S LAUGH-IN: THE COMPLETE SIXTH SEASON REVIEWED
“Rowan and Martin’s Laugh-In: The Complete Sixth Season” started with a solid effort to remodel the show. However, things were running out. Most of the cast was moving onto other things and the host quality was bombing. Still, what was left. You can get Edith Ann and Ernestine out to keep people happy. But, there were one too many Farkle Family sketches that didn’t quite add up. The Fickle Finger of Fate still holds up, but you could see it even in Ruth Buzzi’s eyes. They were out of ideas. Check it out if you’re a Classic TV fan.

The Plot Thus Far
In THE COMPLETE SIXTH SEASON, Carol Burnett signs the Laugh-In autograph book and takes one on the chin. Phyllis Diller tickles the funny bone and the ivories with a little Bach. With their always critical and humorous eye, the “Laugh-In” crew saluted guns, law and order, adult books,
morality, the circus, Thanksgiving, beautiful people, sports, commercials, California, the family, airlines, actors, the ’50s, and the Summer of ’72. And, as always, the Sixth Season includes such classic features as “Cocktail Party,” “Fickle Finger of Fate,” “Here Comes the Judge,” “The Joke Wall,” “General Bull Right,” “Big Al,” “Ernestine” and “Edith Ann,” “The Swizzles,” and “Robot Theater.”
