Ep. 5 - "Back To The Old Jokes At Home"

In an exhibit set up like a comfortable living room, the Curator guides Grandfather and the kids through shows that would now be known as "situation comedy"...where the laughs came from knowing the characters just as much as the funny things they said. (Just don't open that closet door!)
