When Steve Garvey scouted Pee Wee Herman

Over-regulation of the communications sector led to a dearth of television channels in the 1970s, and, indirectly, to The Gong Show, a talent competition hosted by a squinty TV producer who in his spare time, he would have us believe, murdered people for the government.

In this clip, a young Pee Wee Herman (née Paul Reubens) performs with an unnamed partner Charlotte McGinnis and receives the highest possible score from the celebrity judges, among whom is Steve Garvey, star first baseman of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
