Throwback Thursday Comedy Special: Sid Caesar and Nanette Fabray in "The Commuters - The White Rug"



When Your Show of Shows was canceled in 1954, Sid Caesar started a new show called Caesar's Hour. The popular series of sketches called The Hickenloopers, about a bickering married couple, was recast as The Commuters, with Nanette Fabray playing Sid's wife as Imogene Coca had played in The Hickenloopers.

In this 1954 episode of The Commuters, "The White Rug," the rug arrives from India after a 6-month wait. It starts to rain, and as they await the arrival of their friends they realize that the white rug may not have been such a good idea. Sid's sidekicks Carl Reiner and Howard Morris are also in the sketch. 

Enjoy!
