Our Place (U.S. TV series)


Our Place (U.S. TV series)

Our Place was an hour-long variety show on CBS during the summer of 1967. The official host was one of Jim Henson's early puppets, Rowlf the Muppet Hound. The show's other regulars were comedians Jack Burns and Avery Schreiber and the singing Doodletown Pipers.[1]

Our Place, a summer replacement for The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour, debuted on July 2, 1967.[2] The first program featured Carol Burnett as guest star. Burnett portrayed an anti-love protest marcher and a singer who couldn't spell, which created problems when she tried to perform Oklahoma and Mother. Musical numbers included a straight performance of Stormy Weather by Burnett. The Doodletown Pipers performed Up – Up and Away, Sloopy, Georgy Girl, It's Been A Hard Day's Night, Feelin' Good, California Dreamin' and Our Place.[3]

The last telecast of Our Place was September 3, 1967.[4]

Executive producer of Our Place was Bob Precht, who produced The Ed Sullivan Show. John Moffitt was the director. Bill Angelos and Buz Kohan wrote and produced the show.
