  1. you left out the best parts…ella and jimmy singing……sergio does a decent job..but no reason to hear it again

  2. PAT …………..aka "the nut"……….cooper…before he started fighting with his mother on live radio/tv

  3. An all-special Monday night on ABC…why not? Monday was particularly rough for them at this time–the #1 show (LAUGH-IN) on NBC. four Top 10 programs on CBS. Who was left to watch?

  4. @TinyDancer500 A RARE GEM! I have clooected a lot of Sergio Franchi material, but I believe this is the ONLY video I have seen of hum doing an opera aria! Bravo, Sergio! Thanks denteltv2.

  5. Pat made a record album once that parodied the Herb Alpert cover with the senorita wearing a "dress" made of whipped cream. The cover had Pat bare-chested in a mountain of spaghetti and marinara sauce with a "fan" made of breadsticks.

  6. I concur, I don't think I've ever seen a full routine of his before (Pat Cooper), coolness and pretty darn funny! For them that don't know, his real name is indeed Pasquale Caputo. And how about that Sergio, ladies? *swoon*

  7. Wow… clips of younger Pat Cooper doing his bits on TV in the 60's are RARE…. Thanks!
