    The suggestions on the end screen of Milton led me to Bloopers from season 3 of The Big Bang Theory. Now THAT’S comedy!

    Unlike most of the Muppet Show’s guests, Milton Berle actually was a veteran of vaudeville. He had to face heckling all the time.

    We’ve been buying all of these as they come out and watching with our daughter. The Milton Berle episode is one of my favorites, mostly for this scene (his act with Fozzy is great too, especially the terrible puns).
