What Did The Dog Say When He Sat On The Sandpaper
Broadcast: 1st September 1944

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 “What did the little dog say when he sat on sandpaper?” and “Why don’t the girls in Sun Valley take sun baths?”
Critics slated the show when it first appeared and said it wouldn’t last. They were wrong. The show ran for nine years.
