How Can You Tell A Jersey Cow

How Can You Tell A Jersey Cow

Broadcast: 8th September 1944
Added: Jun 26 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 “How can you tell a jersey cow?” and “What kind of a person lives the longest?”

Critics slated the show when it first appeared and said it wouldn’t last. They were wrong. The show ran for nine years.
