The Professor on Sesame Street

Your Show of Shows was an early television variety/sketch comedy series which ran in a 90 minute slot from 1950-1954, starring Sid Caesar. Caesar took the same basic format, supporting cast, and extensive writing staff to Caesar's Hour (1954-1957), which featured fewer and longer sketches.


  • One of Caesar's recurring Your Show of Shows characters was the Professor, a shabby, double-talking German-accented expert on everything. Caesar reprised the role (including his trademark battered top hat) in several inserts on Sesame Street in the 1980s.
