Klassic Kovacs

Ernie Kovacs

I became a fan of Ernie Kovacs in 1977 when PBS aired the 10-part series, The Best of Ernie Kovacs, which was mostly comprised of the specials that he produced for ABC from April 1961 until his untimely death in January 1962. I loved his  humor and this bit is one of my favorite Kovacs creations.

If you are unfamiliar with Kovacs’s work, this may not seem all that impressive but by 1961 standards, this was innovative. Kovacs brought a sense of imagination to television and used the medium in ways that nobody else did. I sometimes wonder what he would have done with technology as it progressed….sadly, we’ll never know. But instead of lamenting what might have been, let’s sit back and enjoy this example of the genius of Ernie Kovacs.
