The Nitwits Episode Guide -DePatie-Freleng Ent
"The Nitwits" segment featured the voices of Ruth Buzzi and Arte Johnson as Gladys Ormphby and Tyrone, respectively, reprising the roles they made famous on Laugh-In. The running joke on that show had Tyrone making suggestive comments to the homely Gladys as she sat on a park bench. This would prompt Gladys to hit Tyrone over the head with her purse. This may not sound like an appropriate segment for kids, but here's the twist: In the cartoon, Gladys and Tyrone put aside their differences and became crime fighters! This elderly crime fighter (and his equally elderly super-heroine wife) still have a few tricks up their sleeves as they continue to combat crime.
