Before Conan O'Brien...

Long before Conan, there were some other O’Briens on television.

This was the pilot for a 1954 television series that crashed and burned before it ever even had a chance to try and fly.

This show reminds me of another favorite from before my time, It’s A Great Life! Well, except for the two Steppin Fetchit characters that are an embarrassing reminder of what life was like before the civil rights movement.

Before Obama, even.

But before Conan... there were some other O’Brien folks on the tube.  They are in the video widget below:

Let us know if you think it could have been a potential TV Land classic.
