When this show was first on,I laughed my head off.Rich Little plays all of the main characters.You might have to be from a certain generation to remember this,or understand the characters being portrayed.

Anyway,here is Rich Little's Robin Hood.Overlook the ad at the beginning.

Part one

WOW what a collection--and yep, its my generation--My favorite was his Johnny Carson routine. He was the ONLY comedian that could do Carson-Thanks Maynard, for the reminders

A very funny guy and one of the best impressionists of his time.
And No one has ever topped Carson. I quit watching late night TV when he retired.

That was when comedians went from being funny into Shock Comedy.

I remember Rich but I don't remember the show. When was it on? I used to love watching his impressions. Thanks Maynard.

When was it on?




I believe it was in the early '80s.


EDIT: I notice it does say '82 over the video.I remember watching it when it first aired,but it actually seems like it was the late '70s. I think it only ever aired once.

Just as a side note.Rich Little also did his own version of Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol,where he played all of the main characters in that one as well.

Thanks Maynard, Late 70's early 80's I was on sea duty and out to sea most of the time so that explains why I don't remember it.
