In 1923, Actor Dick Shawn was born in Buffalo, New York. He began his career as a nightclub comedian and later landed roles in such films as “The Opposite Sex,” “Wake Me When Itʹs Over,” “Itʹs a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World,” “What Did You Do In the War, Daddy?” and the 1967 Mel Brooks classic, “The Producers,” in which he played an erratic hippie actor named “L.S.D.” who is cast in the musical play “Springtime For Hitler” as a singing Fuehrer. Outside of films and guest appearances on TV shows, he was seen to best advantage in his bizarre, stream-of-consciousness nightclub routines — performances that were so quirky and unpredictable that, when he suffered a fatal heart attack while performing onstage at UC San Diego on April 17, 1987, many members of the audience assumed his collapse was part of his act.

In 1945, Burl Ives made his concert debut this night. He appeared at New Yorkʹs Town Hall. We lovingly listen every year for the voice of this old-time radio personality as the narrator and banjo-pickin' snowman in TVʹs, “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”.

In 1949, NBC tunes up “Kay Kyserʹs Kollege of Musical Knowledge,” game show with the popular bandleader hosting a wacky music-oriented quiz show. One of his vocalists is talk show host-to-be Mike Douglas.

In 1972, The password is “hilarious.” Felix Unger and Oscar Madison were always perfectly mismatched. The two men — one a neurotic neatnik, the other a compulsive slob — had absolutely nothing in common except a Manhattan apartment. In “Password,” Felix (Tony Randall) and Oscar (Jack Klugman) make the worst team since oil and water. Oscarʹs notoriety as a sportswriter earns him an invitation to play on the TV game show Password as the popular game-show host Allen Ludden, who turns out to be a fan of Oscarʹs sports columns, approaches him to be a celebrity panelist in a celebrity match playing against Luddenʹs real-life wife, Betty White. Felix, who fancies himself a Password genius, is ecstatic; he can be his roommateʹs partner. Oscar takes some convincing from Felixʹs whining and wheedling — first to be on the show and then to be on it with Felix — but he finally agrees. As bad choices go, this is right up there with Lincolnʹs decision to go to Fordʹs Theater. Practicing at their apartment, Oscar and Felix are totally in sync. but when they get to the studio, itʹs another story entirely. The password is gravy. Whiteʹs clue: “Sauce.” Her partner guesses “Mayonnaise.” Oscar, confidently, turns to Felix. “Meat,” he suggests, using his hands for emphasis. Felix responds, “Lincoln,” a bizarre non sequitur that leaves host Allen Ludden and the rest of the panel dumbfounded. Felix explains: “Itʹs a known fact that Lincoln loved mayonnaise!” Didnʹt we just mention the Great Emancipator earlier? Next, itʹs Felixʹs turn to give the clue; the password is bird. “Aristophanes,” he ventures, explaining after theyʹve lost that Aristophanes wrote the play The Birds. “No more Greek clues!” a furious Oscar shouts at Felix. “Aristophanes is ridiculous!” The next password: ridiculous. Oscar looks hard at Felix and growls, “Aristophanes.” Felix thinks and puts two and two together. “Ridiculous!” he shouts with glee, bouncing up and down. Itʹs a wonderfully witty setup to a classic sitcom moment, the point at which the odd couple finally gets even. The pairʹs utter failure to communicate finds its fullest, most sidesplitting expression in this sparkling episode.

In 1976, “C.P.O. Sharkey” and “The McLean Stevenson Show” debut on NBC.
