Before Netflix’s Space Force, before Best in Show, Fred Willard got his start as the sidekick on the parody show Fernwood 2 Night. It was a spin-off of the Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman show, created by Norman Lear and ran over one summer in 1977.

Fred Willard passed away today and in memoriam I thought I’d share the first episode of Fernwood 2 Night, which we watched this evening.
