I live in Europe and the "Smothers Brothers" were completely unknown to me. At first glance I thought it was about a young Don Adams and Lance Armstrong.

Im old enough to remember their variety show(although,in my defense,I was a young). I never cared much for their routines.They were often corny,and as I remember their show kept getting canceled,then picked up again,then canceled again....... They were particularly irritating when they tried to get political (ie the Vietnam War,Nixon,etc.)And they COULD NOT SING A NOTE ON CUE,but thought they could. I was glad to be finally rid of them because my dad found them hilarious,which I found embarrasing.

only the older folks here will remember The Smothers Brothers show

they were highly controversial in their day-speaking out against the Vietnam war on TV and the censors went nuts canceling them

so they were very much pioneers in that way

and they were the first to air a comedy bit about Pat Paulson running for president-hilarious bits for the time-check youtube-something must still be around showing clips of his efforts to run

and Tommy Smothers Yo Yo man was classic and genius for the time

it's all in the context of the times they lived in-younger ones today might have a difficult time relating to them maybebut they should check them out to see what eheir parents or grandparents saw

- and if they do they should wonder how their grand-kids someday will or will not be able to relate to the comedy/music etc. of today

I think it is very strange that people don't remember these two with fondness. They were so funny and I had such a crush on Tom, and his Yo Yo man was the best. I just love these two!

I'm old enough to have heard them on the radio in their day.
