Loni Anderson hosts a diverting look at newspapers' most popular section. Thirteen cartoonists, including Charles (Peanuts) Schulz, Mort (Beetle Bailey) Walker and Johnny (B.C.) Hart, discuss their work; some of their characters are on the show, too. Howard Hesseman is hilarious reading the funnies over WKRP in one skit. But he's topped by Mell (Momma) Lazarus' mother. Asked her opinion of her son's work, she replies, "Not bad for a boy who eats standing over the sink."
