What Is A Mother In Law Sandwich
Broadcast: 6th November 1952
Added: Mar 26 2010
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 the ones in this episode “What is a mother-in-law sandwich?” or “What is a rumba?”.
Critics slated the show when it first appeared and said it wouldn’t last. They were wrong. The show ran for nine years.
