Stump the King - Barney Martin

Barney MartinThis week, I got a question from Jonathan Myers that reads...
"There was a short lived television show in the late 60's or early 70's - sitcom - where the characters dressed in dog outfits. Part of me thinks it was related to Rob Reiner? Any idea what show this is?"

Well, after scouring my memory and doing a little research, I was able to dig up some info on an unsold pilot called McGurk.

The show starred the late Barney Martin (Morty Seinfeld) as the title character. He and the other actors, indeed, wore dog costumes and had conversations sharing their particular points of view on the human condition.

I don't know where the Rob Reiner connection comes from unless it's the fact that the show was produced by Norman Lear, who also created and produced All in the Family.

I couldn't find any clips of the show online but if you can, I suggest you check it out because there is no way your imagination can match up to reality.

Now for this week's question...

What role do Barney Martin and John C. Reilly have in common?

Congratulations Stewartwallace! You got the correct answer.

Barney Martin originated the role that John C. Reilly played in "Chicago". They've both sung "Mr, Cellophane".
