Storyline

This public service short for U.S. Savings Bonds starts out with Rowan and Martin arriving at a TV studio, ostensibly to host a show. It turns out that trumpet player Herb Alpert is the only other performer listed in the credits who is actually there in person. The others appear in clips, some from their own U.S. Savings Bonds spots, others from unidentified movie or TV appearances. Singer Barbara McNair is shown entertaining U.S. troops in Viet Nam, and the youth group The Young Americans also sings. Written by David Glagovsky <dglagovsky@verizon.net>

Terrific!
14 March 2009 | by willywonka666See all my reviews

This was a great short, with more laughs in 10 minutes than you'll find in several hours of television today. I'm just glad I got the chance to finally see this. I really don't understand how nobody can get Rowan & Martin's humor-perhaps it's too quick for some.

They take the Laugh-In formula and create a unique piece with information about savings bonds along with some brief but funny cameos by Andy Griffith and Don Knotts among others.

I only hope that one day, if their film "The Maltese Bippy" is ever released on DVD, someone will have the presence of mind to include this short as a bonus feature.
