Don Rickles as a Baby

Skit from Modern Family:

David Lee Roth, Joan Rivers, Paul Reubens, and Elton John in 1986.

There are dozens of these on YouTube.

From Season 14, first broadcast on February 18, 1964: Jack receives a call from a psychiatrist, Dr. Johnson (Herbert Rudley), asking him to identify a man who keeps repeating Benny’s name. The delirious man is Jack’s violin teacher, Professor LeBlanc (Mel Blanc). In flashbacks, we witness the crash and burn of Professor LeBlanc as Benny’s heinous violin fiddling eventually drives him insane. Jack decides the only way to cure the man is to play his instrument, and for the first time he plays beautifully. Realizing he’s not a failure, LeBlanc regains his memory. Jack orders Dr. Johnson not to tell anyone that he’s a good violinist; he makes much more money being a bad one.

Original Airdate: 01/23/1974

Brutally, it seems.

And they got John Larroquette back as Dan!

I love this show.
