Dean Martin & Paul Lynde Are So Hilarious

Here's a photo of Paul Lynde with Elizabeth Montgomery on Bewitched, one of my favorite shows of the 60's.

I grew up as a huge fan of Paul Lynde. I always found him to be so hilarious. I remember seeing him on everything from Bewitched to Hollywood Squares. There's also that awesome Halloween special he did in the mid-70's. Paul appeared on Dean Martin's show. Here are some really funny clips featuring Paul and Dino. I hope you enjoy them.

I adore Paul Lynde. He always reminded me of one of my uncles. These are very funny clips. Hard to pick a favorite though.

Wolf Boy said...

These clips are definitely hilarious. These guys had me cracking up so much.

Keith said...

Hey Phoebe. Thanks. Glad you enjoyed these clips. I bet your uncle was something else if Paul reminds you of him.

Keith said...

Hey Wolf. Thanks. Yeah, I was laughing so hard watching these. We need these guys so much today.

Hilarious and then some. Paul Lynde on Hollywood Squares was some of the funniest stuff I've seen on television.

Kate Gabrielle said...

These are so funny :)
I love Bewitched!! I've seen Paul Lynde in other things (like The Glass Bottom Boat, where he's hilarious!) but I'll always remember him from Bewitched!

Jessica Cangiano said...

That first shot is just fantastic! I loved watching (reruns of) Bewitched when I was growing up, but it's been years since I've seen the show. Hopefully I'll catch the episode you mentioned one day (more channels up here north of the 49th really need to rerun that show! ;D).

Wishing you a fantastic Thursday,
♥ Jessica

Leah said...

Thanks for sharing. The clips are so funny.

Protege said...

Paul Lynde is familiar, but I do not know much about him. This shows that my upbringing was in the Eastern Bloc and I was not exposed to many American entertainers.
I enjoyed all the clips, in fact I will have to return to see them all over again.;)

mom & son said...

I caught Bewitched as re-runs, I liked it too. And I was a fan of Paul Lynde. I think he was one of the voices in the movie "Charlotte's Web".

Keith said...

Hey Libby. Thanks for commenting. Bewitched was always a cool show. Paul always made anything he was on better.

Keith said...

Hey Scott. Thanks. Glad you liked those. Yeah, Paul was always great on Hollywood Squares.

Keith said...

Hey Kate. Thanks for commenting. Paul is probably best known for Bewitched and Hollywood Squares. I've seen him in other stuff as well.

Keith said...

Hey Jessica. Thanks for commenting. I always loved Bewitched. It was always cool to see Paul up there. Hope you enjoy those clips. Cheers!

Keith said...

Thanks Janet. Cheers!

Thanks Leah. I'm so glad you enjoyed those. Cheers!

Hey Protege. Thanks for commenting. Sorry you didn't get a chance to see this show. Bewitched is still on today here in reruns. I'm glad you enjoyed these clips. Cheers!

Keith said...

Hey Mom. Thanks for commenting. I'm glad I was able to introduce you to Paul. I'm happy you enjoyed the video.

Keith said...

Hey Jim. Thanks for commenting. Glad you like Paul. He was always funny. Bewitched was a cool show to watch. I do think he did a voice in Charlotte's Web.

MLW said...

We definitely need somebody like Paul Lynde these days....he was the best! Check this clip out....an awesome Paul Lynde impersonator named Michael Airington:

Some Like it Vintage said...

Those are hilarious! I've always enjoyed Paul Lynde - an under-appreciated comedian.

Maggi said...

I always thought Lynde was soooo funny! Thanks for the clips!

Erika said...

Oh, I used to adore Paul Lynde on Bewitched - he was hilarious. That was one of my favorite shows as a child; I always wanted to be Tabitha! :)

Keith said...

Hey Erika. Thanks. I always enjoyed what the show when I was a kid. Paul definitely added some fun to the show.

Keith said...

Hey Insider. Thanks so much. I'm really happy that I can share a slice of this bygone era with people like you.

Lizzy said...

"Bewitched" is one of my favorite shows also, as a child I was fascinated with the "magic" of her.

allen mez said...

Damn these are great. I have a bunch of the DM show on DVD. They're too thin on Paul Lynde unfortunately but plenty of Rickles, Newhart and Peter Sellers. Thanks man.

Mondo said...

OMG I don't know the name Paul Lynde - but he must be the guy that did It's The Wolf and a ton of cartoon voices..

Smoking and drinking around the piano - love it.

dapper kid said...

Paul Lynde was amazing! I remember watching Bewitched when I was younger, I used to love it :) Hope you're having a wonderful day.

Gabbi said...

Great videos and I love the Betwitched frame Keith!! I still watch that show on TVLand every once in awhile :)

clarewbrown said...

Hahahaha it's funny how humor can last for ages. I love these :0)

Keith said...

Hey Lizzy. Thanks. Yeah, when I was a kid I wanted to grow up to have a wife like her.

Keith said...

Hey Allen. Thanks. Glad you enjoyed these clips. I love seeing Paul up here with Dino. There was so many other great guest stars on the show. You listed several of my favorites.

Keith said...

Hey Dave. Thanks for commenting. Paul did a bunch of guest appearances on television here. He also did voice work in cartoons.

Keith said...

Hey Dapper. Thanks. I think most people remember Paul from Bewitched. Plus you can still see him up there in reruns. I hope you're feeling better.

Keith said...

Hey Gabbi. Thanks. Glad you liked the clips. I was looking for a pic of Paul and that's basically the best one I could find.

Keith said...

Hey Clare. Thanks. Yeah, these were funny back then and still today. Cheers!

rhiannon said...

Haha Great clips! Paul Lynde is hilarious! :):)

Keith said...

Thanks Rhiannon. Yeah, Paul is very funny. I thought he and Dino were great together.

AutumnJones said...

aahh, Keith you are the best! First i LOVE LOVE LOVE This show. Its one of my all time favorites. i've always like Paul Lynde and Dean who couldn't?

Keith said...

Hey Autumn. Thanks so much. I'm thrilled that you enjoyed this post. That means a lot. Take care. Cheers!

FilmFather said...

I loved Paul Lynde as a kid. A lot is said these days about his closeted lifestyle, but as a kid I just saw him as eccentric.

Have you ever seen Richard Dawson impersonate him spontaneously from time to time on Match Game? Funny stuff.

I still have yet to see his '70s Halloween special; gotta check that out.

Cheryl Lynn said...

My mother and I were huge Uncle Arthur fans in the days of Bewitched. He was our favorite relative on Samantha's side. I also enjoyed him very much on Hollywood Squares. Your blog is so much fun and so informative on Hollywood's Heyday.

Have a great weekend.

Keith said...

Hey FilmFather. Thanks for commenting. As a kid, I didn't know all the details about his personal life. I thought he was pretty eccentric. He was always hilarious.

Not seen Richard Dawson do that impersonation. That is awesome. I've seen a character or two in movies do it though.

His Halloween Special has got to be seen. Hope you get a chance.

Keith said...

Hey Cheryl Lynn. Thanks so much. I always thought Paul was great as Uncle Arthur. He was my favorite relative of Samanatha's. He was also fantastic on Hollywood Squares. I'm so glad you enjoy my blog. Cheers!

Terence Sambo said...

Uber Cool :o]

Keith said...

Thanks Terence.

Opé - Style Artist said...

Great stuff! Thanks for sharing this.

Keith said...

Thanks Ope. Glad you liked it.

Sam said...

I used to love Paul Lynde on Bewitched too - they had some great bit part players on that show, didn't they? I also liked it when Montgomery dressed up as her sassy "cousin" Sabrina (?). But Paul Lynde was awesome - I've watched the top one here - classic hilarity - am looking forward to watching all of them! Have a great weekend!

Keith said...

Hey Sam. Thanks for commenting. Paul was definitely one of the highlights of that show. Glad you enjoyed the first clip. I'm sure you will like the other ones as well. Cheers!
