"Va-va-va-voom!" - Silly expression used by Art Carney in a number of comic roles including Newton-the-Waiter and Charlie-the-Doorman characters on THE MOREY AMSTERDAM SHOW/CBS/DUM/1948-50 and Ed Norton, a zany sewer worker on THE HONEYMOONERS/CBS/1955-56. In 1954, Art Carney released a novelty song entitled "Va Va Va Voom" on Columbia Records (flip-side featured "Song of the Sewer")

"Ver-r-r-y interesting" - Funny phrase spoken by comedian Arte Johnson while portraying a German soldier on the comedy variety program ROWAN AND MARTIN'S LAUGH-IN/NBC/1968-73. Wearing a pair of wire-rimmed spectacles and holding a lit cigarette, this zany helmeted Nazi peered from behind a potted palm at the conclusion of a blackout skits saying "Ver-r-r-y interesting." The phrase inspired the sixty-minute NBC comedy special "Ve-r-r-y Interesting" (3/17/71) where Arte Johnson reprised his role in a series of comedy skits featuring Bing Crosby, Peter Marshall, Elke Sommers, Billy DeWolfe, Joe Flynn and Nancy Kulp.
