Don Rickles is Dead by BruceM

Question 10

Which TV sit-com was Rickles taping when Johnny Carson -- in mock anger that Rickles had accidentally broken Carson's cigarette box during a previous Tonight Show -- stormed across the hall and onto the set to call Rickles a "big dummy"?

Rickles told the studio audience of this sitcom (set on a naval base in San Diego) "Ladies and gentlemen, Johnny Carson!" To which Carson brusquely replied: "They know who I am."
