The complete Laugh In Second Season is here!
The 60s and 70s were a wonderful time for variety shows that entertained and made us laugh and one that stands out is definitely Rowan and Martin’s Laugh-in. The show aired for six seasons from 1968 until 1973. At that time, I was much younger than their intended audience, but I do remember thinking that it was really cool. I thought that Goldie Hawn was beautiful and funny when she cracked jokes and danced wearing a bikini and groovy body paint.
Many of the show’s catch phrases found their way into everyday conversations. Here are some of my favorites:
- Sock it to me
- You bet your sweet bippy
- Here comes the Judge
- One ringy dingy – Two ringy dingy
- You can look that up in your Funk and Wagnalls
- Beautiful downtown Burbank
- And that’s the truth
- Verrrry Interesting
- Oh – I’ll drink to that

Laugh In Second Season Synopsis
The 60s gave us in-crowds, be-ins and love-ins, and starting in 1968, the happening place for free-form comedy was ROWAN & MARTIN S LAUGH-IN, broadcast from beautiful downtown Burbank. Straight man Dan Rowan and wisecracking co-host Dick Martin led a gaggle of goofballs through a rapid-fire assault of one-liners, skits, bits and non sequiturs that left viewers in hysterics and disbelief. Anything and anyone in the public eye was a target. Political correctness? Forget it! The groundbreaking, Emmy Award winning show anchored the Monday 8 p.m. time slot on NBC until March 12, 1973.
