Who remembers the Smothers Brothers?

Does anybody else remember the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour?

That controversial variety show popped into my head today when we were talking about a news story in which some unlucky criminals stumbled into a hive of bees.

No, it wasn't a vat of chocolate that they fell into, but it reminded me of this classic song from Tom and Dick Smothers. 

I watched that show when I was a kid and had no idea what was going on in most of their sketches or commentary, but this I understood.
