It originally aired as a one-time special on September 9, and was such a success that it was brought back as a series, replacing The Man from U. The title of the show was a play on the " love-ins " or "be-ins" of the s hippie culture, terms that were derived from " sit-ins " that were common in protests associated with civil rights and antiwar demonstrations of the time. Laugh-In had its roots in the humor of vaudeville and burlesque, but its most direct influences were Olsen and Johnson 's comedies such as the free-form Broadway revue Hellzapoppin' , the innovative television works of Ernie Kovacs , and the topical satire of That Was The Week That Was. The show was characterized by a rapid-fire series of gags and sketches, many of which conveyed sexual innuendo or were politically charged. The co-hosts continued the exasperated straight man Rowan and "dumb guy" Martin act which they had established as nightclub comics. The original show airs on Decades TV.
