One of Bill Cosby’s best comic routines has to do with a family debating over which TV show to watch. (Obviously this routine originated in the days when most families had only one TV.) In the routine, Dad wants to watch the western Gunsmoke, but the kids want to watch Froofy the Dog.
The kids ﬁnally win the battle when they air the rumor that the Gunsmoke episode is going to feature the drowning of kittens. (In case you were wondering, there never was a Gunsmoke episode in which kittens were drowned.)
