HASH(0x9b009174) out of 5 stars Then Came Paulsen Sept. 28 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com

The Pat Paulsen Half A Comedy Hour was a mid-season replacement in 1970 that my brother and myself never missed. I remember it as one of the funniest shows on televison and am eager to see how it stands the test of time. Regular routines included a takeoff on a popular series of the same period called "Then Came Bronson" about a disillusioned man who quits his job to travel the country on his motorcycle and "find America." Called "Then Came Paulsen" it included tongue-in-cheek titles like "I've Got A Monkey On My Back And I Can't Stop." Another frequent segment was called "Hobbie Hut" where Paulsen regularly destroyed the projects of his American Indian co-host. Interview segments included Daffy Duck and a very funny double interview with a very ratty looking Smoke the Bear and the Cookie Bear form the Andy Williams Show. I'm very excited about the opportunity to see this again. Paulsen was a gifted comedian whose career was too short.

HASH(0xa265bae0) out of 5 stars I Remember This Fondly Sept. 22 2009

I am excited to see this again. I have very fond memories of this funny show, including Pat Paulson's interview with Daffy Duck. Sometimes old TV is best remembered rather than seen again, but I think this might be the exception. I hope so. I may not be fourteen any more, but I am not that much more sophisticated than I was then. Sad, huh?

HASH(0x9ad123fc) out of 5 stars DISAPPOINTING March 31 2010
By Chris Brown - Published on Amazon.com

Love Pat Paulsen. Children must have been writing this show! Some good guest stars (Mike Connors!), some (stress, some) funny bits especially the VW and the sledgehammer and pleading for more than 13 episodes, and a clip from the first Smothers Brothers Show with Pat as a "famous star". Don't regret getting, as I really like Pat, but he was let down by writing and deserved better. Colour and print quality are okay, but considering the age I thought it would be better. Dean Martin shows from the '60s look better.

If you pick it up for around $15, you'll probably find enough to justify its purchase especially if you like Pat. (Still remember him quite vividly in an episode of "The Wild, Wild West"!)

HASH(0x9abcc180) out of 5 stars Disappointing Feb. 21 2011
By InstantWatcher - Published on Amazon.com

I originally watched this show when it was first broadcast, but could not remember much. Being a Pat Paulsen fan I purchased this series to re-kindle that enthusiasm. Unfortunately, my enthusiasm was somewhat dimmed. The production qualities are excellent, but I now recall why this series was canceled after 13 weeks. Pat was a great monologist, and his deadpan delivery of comical material was top notch. But he was not a great sketch comic. There is not much to recommend as far as funny bits are concerned. In fact some of the sketches were downright terrible and repetitive ("Peanut Brittle, Mister" and "Then Came Paulsen" being the two worst, in my opinion). This set also includes a collection of his later commercials, which are funnier than some of the comedy routines. Perhaps someone can collect his "Smothers Brothers" appearances. That was where he was at his funniest.

HASH(0x9abaedc8) out of 5 stars Back Again Dec 29 2010
By George T. Thorn - Published on Amazon.com

This was an interesting era in television. Pat was a major hit on the TV series The Smothers Brothers, especially with his run for president. Pick fun at the establishment in a way never done before. Unfortunately it all hit home far too well and the series was cancelled. It is great to relive some of the unusual humor Pat and his writers created to attack the days and times of my youth and a government being forced to account for its actions like never before.
