"The Moby Grapes" on Mike Douglas

I have to admit that Mike Douglas was a staple of our household when I was growing up. His show aired in the afternoon - I want to say sometime around 4:00 p.m. - and I remember watching him from about the time I was 8 years old, through 14 or 15.

No one ever accused Mike of being particularly hip, but he did feature a lot of rock bands on his show. I'm not sure what's funniest about this appearance of Moby Grape - Mike's introduction of the band as "The Moby Grapes," or the decidedly tepid response from the crowd. But in any event, this is the kind of stuff YouTube was invented for.
