When introducing Kramer, Owens said, "Today, he joined the Big
Brothers of America, and now every Saturday some guy comes over to his
house and takes him over to the ball game."
Kramer countered by honoring cast members Owens, Dick Martin, Ruth
Buzzi, Jo Anne Worley, Arte Johnson, Henry Gibson, Alan Sues and guest
star Tim Conway.
"You've brought hundreds of hours of laughter and entertainment.
Pretty much like our council meetings," Kramer said.
"At a time when there's not a lot of positive news on TV, you can see
today there's a lot of positive things going on in our city," Kramer
said, introducing a videotaped tour of Burbank's recent developments.
Tooling around town in a canary-yellow 1967 Camaro convertible, Kramer
and Owens visited locations including the grand openings of Target and
Costco and the site of the future Buena Vista Public Library.
Selected clips from "Laugh-In," which repeatedly mentioned Burbank,
were edited into the video, now airing on Charter Communications Cable
About showing up, Tim Conway said, "In all honesty, I truly had
nothing else to do today."
Reruns of "Laugh-In" have recently begun showing on Trio Satellite TV.
