Don Martin MAD Magazine Cartoon This cartoon, likely published in MAD magazine sometime during the 1970s, is typical of both cartoonist Don Martin's unmistakable artistic style and off-the-wall, punny sense of humor.

George Best 1971 Hat-Trick The average American sports fan has probably never heard of George Best, but in the early 1970s, he was probably the best soccer player in the world. A resident of Northern Ireland, Best caught the attention of a scout for Manchester United at age 15 who reported that he had found a 'genius.' Best had incredible balance and could strike beautiful, creative, and powerful shots with both feet. In this clip from September 18, 1971 Best scores three goals for Manchester United versus West Ham United. (The third one is especially spectacular!) Unfortunately Best fell into a hedonistic lifestyle. He once joked that he had spent most of his fortune on booze, women and fast cars--and had squandered the rest! Best became an alcoholic and died way too young at age 59 in 2005.

Love on a Rooftop - Failed Sitcom Judy Carne and Peter Deuel (a.k.a. Peter Duel) starred in Love on a Rooftop, an ABC sitcom that had potential but was not renewed beyond its premier 1966-67 season. This is the opening sequence. The plot revolved around a newlywed couple, Dave and Julie Willis, and their humorous struggles to survive in San Francisco on Dave's meager weekly salary of $85.37 he earned as an apprentice architect. Matters were complicated by the fact that Julie came from a well-to-do family. Her father did not approve of their less than luxurious lifestyle and often took it upon himself to try to improve it--causing friction with Dave. Rich Little appeared as neighbor Stan Parker. The show began its 30-episode run on Tuesday nights but switched to Thursday in January 1967. It drew better ratings than another new sitcom, That Girl, that followed it on ABC's Thursday lineup. Strangely That Girl was renewed and ended up having a solid five-year network run while Love on a Rooftop pretty much entered sitcom oblivion. ABC aired reruns during the summer of 1971 partly to promote Peter Duel's new light-hearted western show Alias Smith and Jones. Duel committed suicide on December 31, 1971. He was 31 years old.

Nick Lucas on The Tonight Show 1969 You've probably never heard of Nick Lucas, but here's a chance to discover a great, forgotten talent. In 1929, the 32-year-old Lucas, who was already a major recording star, introduced Tiptoe Through the Tulips in the movie Gold Diggers of Broadway. Tiny Tim revitalized the song four decades later and became friends with Lucas. When Tiny Tim got married on The Tonight Show on December 17, 1969, the 72-year-old Lucas was an honored guest. He performed two songs masterfully while playing his trademark style of deep guitar. Can you guess what the second song was? Lucas died three weeks before his 85th birthday in 1982.

Federer Upsets Sampras - 2001 The only time two of the greatest and classiest tennis champions of all time--Roger Federer and Pete Sampras--ever met in an ATP match was in the Round of 16 at Wimbledon in 2001. Federer was an unknown 19-year-old Swiss player. He was given virtually zero chance to beat the 30-year-old Sampras who had won Wimbledon seven times and was largely considered to be invincible on grass. Nevertheless Federer evenly battled Sampras through five sets and emerged victorious. This clip shows match point and the aftermath. Check out Federer's goofy hairstyle!

Conan OBrien plays 1864 Baseball From his late night NBC show in the mid-2000s, Conan O'Brien shows up at a vintage baseball league on Long Island, New York to get in on some 1864-style action--and to woo a shy, pretty farm girl spectator. (Conan has said in several interviews that this is his favorite 'remote' comedy bit.)
