OTD February 19 - All in the Family
15 / 34
Sony Pictures Television

1972: Sammy Davis Jr. makes his notorious guest appearance on the sitcom "All in the Family," giving the show's main character, white bigot Archie Bunker, a big kiss on the cheek. The ensuing unrestrained laughter from the audience was the longest in television history and the scene had to be cut short in the final print to allow Archie to say the last line on screen.
