"Turn-On!" Very weird 1969 sketch comedy show cancelled during first airing now on YouTube

2 stations pulled this off the air while it was airing, and ABC cancelled it before it was over. Here's the first episode from a master tape with commercials included:

And the never-aired second episode that was completed and had the commercials ready to go with it:

These may get pulled by the rightsholder so watch them while you can! The only other way to see them is to go to the Paley Center.

Wow! Never thought I'd ever get a chance to see this.

Thanks for sharing!

Yeah, that's a fucking trip

feel like Adult Swim's entire live-action catalog is based off this. I can also say I see why they went with 12 minute episodes for their wacky stuff instead of 24.

Darn, pulled due to copyright claims before I got to see it.

But, but, streaming is the FUTURE! Why keep copies of anything when you'll always be able to see it on YouTube?

OK, the linked article says George Schlatter will be "officially" uploading them on Monday, hopefully in better quality. I'd still buy a DVD.

Yeah, with the commercials missing and TWO bugs on the screen. George Schlatter is a hack.
