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.
