Can A Letter Box
Broadcast: 27th October 1944
Added: Jul 06 2009
A quiz show spoof that lampooned other quiz shows of the time such as Information, Please
and The Quiz Kids
. The format of the show was simple. Three nitwits made up the "board of experts". They spent more time trying to figure out what the question was than actually giving a sensible answer. The questions were as ludicrous as “Can a letter box?” and “Where was the declaration of independence signed?” Answer. “At the bottom!”
Critics slated the show when it first appeared and said it wouldn’t last. They were wrong. The show ran for nine years.
