This appearance of Don Rickles is OK, but he's been better. Also, this episode absolutely did not air in 1979....based on references made to the Patty Hearst kidnapping, the NFL strike, mention of Johnny's cigarette box (unbroken...broken by Rickles himself in Dec. '76 in a famous incident), and Rickles mentioning he had been married for 10 years. This would put it somewhere in 1975 through early '76 (there was also reference to the Bicentennial minute). Had I known this was from 1975 or '76, I wouldn't have spent $2.00 on this episode, as I've already seen this appearance anyway, and haven't seen any of Rickles' late night talk show appearances from the late '70s through the early '80s (obviously, I'm a big Rickles fan). If you're new to Don Rickles, by all means watch it, but know it is absolutely NOT from 1979.
