  • A hilarious take on the courtroom scene in "To Kill A Mockingbird," with Pryor playing the prosecuting attorney of a white female who was supposedly raped by a black boy (whose head is at close range of the shotgun pointed at him by the hick sheriff), who is represented by an intelligent Yankee played by Robin Williams. From the racially segregated witnesses to the outrageous double verdict, this is perhaps one of the most memorable bits of the four shows. 172.69.22.186

    WOW! So many people at start of their careers worked on this show: John Witherspoon (RIP), Sandra Bernhardt, Tim Reid, and Robin Williams (RIP). Too bad the content AND Pryor were a bit too daring for TV at the time (1977), and the show only lasted for 13 episodes
