Watch Scotty and Worf prove that comic strips don't exist in the future.

Back on December 30, 1987, Star Trek actors James "Scotty" Doohan and Michael "Worf" Dorn competed on the game show Super Password. The show was hosted by Bert Convy and was originally part of NBC's daytime lineup from 1984 to 1989. The basic rules are that the contestants take turns guessing a word and, when all the clues are guessed, the player has to guess the final password.

In this clip, the clues were supposed to lead them to the comic strip "Beetle Bailey." The only problem is that no one on the show, including the host, had ever heard of Beetle Bailey. Mort Walker's strip follows Private Beetle Bailey and his adventures in the Army since 1950.


We miss you James Doohan. Happy trails.

Have you ever heard of "Beetle Bailey"? What do you think of the video clip?

I read Beetle Bailey a few times as a kid. It's one of those where I don't know why it still exists today.

That's hilarious. I would've had it by Snorkel.

I'm familiar with it, but never read it.

I guess you have to be a regular reader of the funny pages to really know Beetle. Or, for that matter, its connection to Hi & Lois.

I probably wouldn't have thought of it till the last word Alex.

Maurice Mitchell said...

It was funny back in the day.

Maurice Mitchell said...

I don't even know the connection Tony.

Maurice Mitchell said...

I miss him too Jeremy. He was a funny guy.

Maurice Mitchell said...

I haven't read it in years to be honest.

Tony Laplume said...

From the same creator. Beetle is also oldest kid Chip's uncle. That's why they look so much alike.

Maurice Mitchell said...

Well how about that
