This pilot episode was recorded live with all the bloopers left in. The shows were all recorded for an hour, then edited down to 30 minutes so that many of Groucho's risque one liners and quips could be removed. Insults fly and those who receive them count them as compliments when delivered by this ad-lib great.
"A 'pilot' is a film made by a producer who wants to pitch the idea for a TV series to the networks. If the network likes the pilot, or if they air the pilot and it gets good response, the producer gets a deal to make more episodes based on the pilot... usually 13 or 26, which will then be aired. If those do well in the ratings the network will request more episodes for a series. Many pilots get made every year, some make it to the air - most don't. We have included first episodes of series in this category, even though they're technically not pilots."
