Sunday Funnies-Vintage Smothers Bros.

I loved the Smothers Brothers and used to watch them on TV, and my dad would play their comedy albums on our living room stereo, many years ago. Here's a fun clip featuring Dick and Tommy Smothers, both singing the "Yo-Yo Man" song, and Tommy demonstrating his yo-yo expertise. Tommy was a whiz with a yo-yo! As a kid, I had several of them over the years, and I remember trying desperately to learn the tricks and practicing like crazy. Sadly, the only thing Miss Fumble Fingers here could muster up was getting the yo-yo to go up and down a few times before the string sagged and I had to wind it and start all over again. Enjoy the video, and enjoy your Sunday!
