ROWAN & MARTIN’S LAUGH-IN: THE COMPLETE FIFTH SEASON
ROWAN AND MARTIN’S LAUGH-IN: THE COMPLETE FIFTH SEASON REVIEWED
“Laugh-In” returns for a fifth year. This is the season where Richard Dawson debuted after some of the talent left over money disputes. Raquel Welch hosts the best episode and the rest of the season is spent just racing to the end. That being said, it’s neat to see Gene Hackman show up to do some comedy. If you still dig vintage stuff, hang out to see Vin Scully and Tiny Tim get some air time.
If you’re too young, then this might as well be in Esperanto. With that being said, it’s funny enough for your grandparents. Let them have a few chuckles at the six DVDs worth of content.

The Plot Thus Far
In THE COMPLETE FIFTH SEASON, after years of shameless name dropping, Dick finally gets his wish when bombshell Raquel Welch kicks off the new season with her first and only appearance on the show. Former Hogan’s Heroes POWs Richard Dawson and Larry Hovis escaped CBS to join the cast. And, along with alumni Judy Carne, Arte Johnson, Henry Gibson, Jo Anne Worley and Teresa Graves, they help to celebrate Laugh-In’s landmark 100th episode (September 1, 1971). THE COMPLETE FIFTH SEASON also trots out many of the 20th century’s greatest talents, including Steve Allen, Johnny Carson, Johnny Cash, Carol Channing, Charo, Petula Clark, Bing Crosby, Tony Curtis, Henry Gibson, Gene Hackman, Rita Hayworth, Hugh Hefner, Bob Hope, Arte Johnson, Paul Lynde, Liza Minnelli, Agnes Moorehead, Joe Namath, Carroll O’Connor, Vincent Price, Carl Reiner, Debbie Reynolds, Sugar Ray Robinson, Bill Russell, Vin Scully, Doc Severinsen, Jacqueline Susann, Tiny Tim, John Wayne, Raquel Welch, Henny Youngman, and more!
