jjkhawaiian : Pedro was awesome! He had me in stitches the whole time. Best straight funny man ever. The Mexican Jerry Lewis, lol.

George Alderson : Mr Marx has the courtesy to allow time for the audiance to laugh and to applaud the guest and he joins in with them too rather than upstaging him as so many "seasoned professionals" are seen to do these days. What a splendid man he was.

Dave Erhardt : Politically correct people would call this racist. I wouldn't, I think we're beyond this, the man was just naturally funny. That's it.

The Artful Dodger : John Wayne saw this and had him cast in several of his movies. Pedro had a long career doing TV and film.

rockhard : if groucho marx thinks your funny dude, your major funny

Jason Love : Love this! I hear Mr. Gonzalis was able to start a career in film from this. It is hilarious.

poetcomic1 : Groucho loved him.  In South Texas there was STILL at that time Mexican theatrical vaudeville of which P.G.G. was a part.  Expert timing and even novelty dancing which was a Groucho  specialty as well.  One of the few times on the show you can see Groucho throw back his head and laugh totally.

Terrence Daugherty : "This is racist." Try having a sense of humor, it helps the serious go down. You go on Groucho's show and anything goes. That's his style of humor. To call Groucho racist is to know nothing of the Marx Brothers or Groucho himself.

Michael A Herrejon : I personally met Pedro Gonzalez-Gonzalez before he passed away in 2006. He told me that he was residing in San Antonio at that time, but I will always cherish meeting him in my store. Thank you, Jesus for the appointed time. Amen

Jinny Park : Pedro Gonzalez Gonzalez was a comic genius. He is hilarious! LOL

superfaces : Brilliant brilliant brilliant...comedy at its best! Pedro you make us all proud. Thank you Groucho.

poetcomic1 : Pedro's grandson, Clifton Collins Jr. is one of the top character actors in Hollywood. He won special acclaim playing killer Perry Smith in the award winning film, Capote. Groucho loved Pedro and once said that he was his favorite guest of all time. Pedro was still doing South Texas Spanish Vaudeville gigs after WWII when vaudeville was long since dead elsewhere. Groucho, a veteran of vaudeville loved him for it. Pedro even did 'novelty' or funny dancing just as Groucho did himself.

Julie Cullen : Best straight man ever

Mitch Gawlik : I don't know who's funnier, Groucho or Mr. Gonzalez-Gonzalez. Ms. O'Reilly was a good sport.

bull419 : Pedro has a great sense of humor, it is custom in Latin countries and in Spain to take your mother's name after your father's name, so if they have the same last it sounds redundant but it's custom but Pedro makes up a great excuse for his name which might even be true, as a fellow Latino, this is very funny...!!!

MondoBeno : Pedro is hilarious. His deadpan delivery is perfect.

OaktownABQ : "Two people in the act, and I get third billing!" LOL

John Bliss : Vote for Pedro

Dave Mitchell : This was a set up. I worked radio in San Antonio in the early '70s and knew people who knew G-G. He was a stand up comic in Texas before this appearance. Now days you couldn't get away with a a prearrangement like this on a legit game show.

David Sutton : He made Groucho actually laugh out loud while the crowd roars!

darylmichael7 : Classic. I could have listened to Pedro another hour. He and Groucho make a great team.

Glen Cadieux : "PEDRO GONZALEZ - GONZALEZ", MADE SEVERAL APPERANCES IN MOVIES, TV SHOWS, BECAUSE OF HIS appearance on this show.  CHEECH MARIN, ("Cheech & Chong") - ATTRIBUTED HIS desire for movies & television, & entertainment, because he saw this show, & would always watch the show every time afterward,  it was on, to see if Pedro was gonna be on again, & said :Pedro was the first Mexican that was ever on television, he had roles in Bonanza, Gunsmoke, & quiet a few others....!!!! (LOL - "2 people & I get third billing") !!!  He was so quick - witted !!!  the older Comedians today still pay homage to Groucho, for breaking into "new territory", in the Marx Bothers movies & inspired Many GREAT PEOPLE  !!!  Groucho, had 5 Other brothers that all had the nicknames because of the kind of person that they were.    His first older brother was Manfred, but he died as a baby at 3 months old - When asked what he died from, Grouch always replied "old Age", Chico, was a "womanizer, that was always chasing the girls or "chicks",  Gummo, was an older brother that only liked to wear Gum - souled Shoes, When they were a kid - Groucho, was a "Sour" personality, but always made it Funny, Harpo - for his love of the harp, who had difficulty delivering the lines, & actually had a role in a Silent Movie, but he was a Very Funny Physical Actor, so they decided that Harpo would always Pantomime, & never speak, Zeppo - I don't know why - but Zeppo really didn't like being in the movies & had more of an interest in being an Agent, & started his own business as an Agent to many of the Stars, After Gummo returned from WW1, he joined zeppo in the Agency business, & it was Zeppo's Agency business that would later become "THE CORE", OF MGM, & just kept expanding MGM from Zeppo's business signing movie stars under contracts.

José Arturo : 🎵 *Alla en El Rancho Grande,ah You want it in English or Espanish?* 😅

Lee Mclaury : His name was Pedro Gonzalez Gonzalez. 1925 - Feb. 26, 2006. His grandson is Clifton Collins Jr.

sweiland75 : I suspect his English was better than what he let on and that's why he was able to top Groucho in being funny.

Living The Dream : Sally was a honey

J Smith : Pedro G was magnificent. No wonder this interview launched a successful acting career!

Chip Griffiths : Better than anything on tv today.

Leon Allan Davis : The Mexican was a pro comedian...probably just starting out.. Groucho used his show to give young talent a start...

fg6971 : Wow. He is the funny hotel owner in one of my favorite movies, Rio Bravo from 1959. Pedro stole the show in this episode.

Truth Hurtz : Neither one had heard of "Sodom and Gomorrah", wow.

Andy Jay : What a bummer getting Sodom and Gomorrah wrong.

Victoria Odegaard : So hilarious! Pedro is a good counterpart for groucho

CaptainObvious123 : "Two people in the act and I get third place" LOL

Arthur Shatz : A sure indicator of how far our society has corroded is that today this would probably be considered racist. This country has completely lost its sense of humor. Sometimes stuff is just done for laughs, but a lot of people don't get it.

jessie james : did they take his voice for Speedy Gonzalez? sounds familiar. Not making fun...

David M : Very funny routine. Must have been scripted to get the final question wrong. I'm sure they would have known the answer.

dave griego : "Gonzalez-Gonzalez" was born in a town of about 23 people in rural Texas. He was a functioning illiterate his whole life. He served in WWII, where he was a driver and did stand up for Spanish speaking troops. That was his only training before this show was recorded. Despite his short comings, he carved out a decent career in film and good life for himself and his family. Most of us will not reach the goals he achieved...

Arthur Harrison : Ramiro Gonzalez-Gonzalez appeared in over 20 motion pictures.

Bob Ham : this is the same guy that was on Rio Brovo with John Wayne. 1959????

Joe Stalin : Wow, 60 years too late but I'm so rooting for Sr Gonzalez Gonzalez to get his bean money!!!

John Armstrong : Groucho gave young comedians a shot long before Carson, Steve Allen or Letterman

jessie james : Pedro was completely not self conscious at all...and absolutely funny

Lord High Xcutioner : Early interracial kiss.

fliegeroh : 6:58 Groucho: "What would we call our act." Pedro: "Gonzalez-Gonzalez, and Marx" Groucho: "That's a nice billing. Two people in the act and I get third place."

PowerNdust : This guy's hilarious! Brought up my mood :)

ACS Shap : It's like a Burns and Allen bit.

Gary Slama : Pedro is awwwesome. So dry, just beautiful. These two coulda had some great scenes together. Lmao.

MJ Sanchez : Pedro Gonzalez is from San Antonio, Tejas !!!!

elgubero : This man is soooo funny and doesn’t even seem to know it!!! He’s got some moves too!!
