Sunday Morning Bobblehead Thread

Your Sunday morning show TV guide, plus, an anniversary to celebrate.

Yesterday was the 45th anniversary of the debut of the hilarious British TV show, Fawlty Towers. The episode from above was called "The Germans" — ultimately pulled off British TV and edited, because it contained racial epithets spoken by a minor character. But all of Basil's outrageous behavior towards completely innocent German guests in his hotel remain, even though as recently as June, a British streaming service pulled it down to add a warning about that "upsetting" behavior as well.

Anyhow, we could all use a good laugh right about now, and John Cleese always delivered with this ridiculous and much-too-short-lived comedy series.
