TV Series
    The name of the show was a play on the sleep-in, a form of protest during the Vietnam War.
    Some credit it for giving Richard Nixon the victory in the close election of 1968 after he came on the show and deadpanned, 'Sock it to me?' Hubert Humphrey was invited, but declined.
    It had many recurring jokes got old fast.
    Only four regulars stayed with it the entire time it was on the air - Dan Rowan, Dick Martin, Gary Owens and Ruth Buzzi.
    It gave a lot of publicity to Tiny Tim.
    The final season of the show was so bad, that the producers refused to allow even mere clips of it to be shown on television.
    It stopped making new episodes because it simply ran out of funny ideas.
    In 1979, Producer George Schlatter tried to revive Laugh-in with a new cast. It failed miserably in only one month.
    Many show regulars went on to have successful careers.
    Sketches often had a great deal of sexual innuendo.
    It managed to get John Wayne in a bunny costume to say a ridiculous poem.
    It was fast-paced and its sketches rarely were allowed to drag on, a problem in many other sketch comedy shows.
    It originated programming for those with short attention spans.
    It managed to make Americans laugh during a difficult time in their history.
    NBC has since aired specials about the show that have garnered large ratings, including a 25th Anniversary Special.
    It had lots of memorable one-liners.
    It had a fake news sketch years before Saturday Night Live.
