Chico impersonating Harpo on episode aired 4/21/54

Friday, May 13th, 2016

In the past, I’ve been asked to upload the episode in which Chico Marx appeared pretending to be Harpo. Unfortunately, I don’t have any episodes earlier than 1955.

I do, however, have the 1982 documentary “The Marx Brothers in a Nutshell,” which includes a few seconds of footage of Chico being introduced, from which this frame comes.

It’s hard for me to believe that anyone would be fooled into thinking this was Harpo, but then I’ve never seen the entire segment.

Thanks, Tom!

More YouTube links being added

Saturday, March 19th, 2011

I’m in the process of collecting as many links as I can to YouTube videos of specific IGaS episodes or show segments and adding those links to the episode guide. Several dozen such links to videos have been added to the guide already. If you like, you can post here to inform me of additional YouTube links, although I may already be aware of them and have simply not got around to them yet. I also have the capacity to add videos. If you’ve ever written to this site because you or your relatives appeared on the show on a specific date, and there is not already a YouTube video of that episode, I hope to be able to provide one in the near future.

New photo of Garry Moore

Tuesday, September 1st, 2009

Just got this email:

Attached is a picture of my father and Gary Moore in 1956 when my father was on I Got a Secret. He is holding up 4 fingers because his secret was that he just had his 4th set of Twins. It is my understanding that no one guessed his secret.
