Cute. Wayne & Schuster were everywhere in the late 50s and early 60s.

Parts of it were also included in the Firesign Theater early 1970s album "TV or Not TV"

My favorite of their routines is "Rinse the Blood Off My Toga!" which is a rework of Julius Caesar as though it had been written by Mickey Spillane (of The Maltese Falcon fame), and then done up as a TV detective show. But I do not recommend the version of that routine that is up on youtube -- it's been butchered!

I have an old Wayne and Shuster LP that includes audio-only versions of both of these sketches, along with "I Was a TV Addict" (a thoroughly forgettable true-confessions style routine) and "Frontier Psychiatrist" (a sendup of a totally stereotyped Freudian analyst in the Old West).

A few quotes from FP:
"This program is respectfully dedicated to those brave pioneers -- the Frontier Psychiatrists -- who brought mental health to the West!"

"Tell me... When did you first discover you hated your horse?" <--Viennese accent
"I don't hate my horse!" <--bad "cowboy" accent
"Then when did you first discover your horse hated you?"

and on, and on.

This actually reminds me a ton of the Conan O'Brian 1864 baseball skit --
