And later in the KTMA Superdome episode there's a non-four letter gag when
the narrator says something like "the fans have been pitching tents and
camping out in excitement and anticipation of seeing the superbowl" and
Joel says "they're excited if they're pitching tents".

I wonder if the KTMA episodes all exist, and in better quality, but have
been suppressed by an agreement with Comedy Central to forbid their
rebroadcast or distribution. Comedy Central is more restrictive to what
they can show than broadcast TV. They once reconstructed Cheech And Chong's
Next Movie to remove all drug references in favor of "diamonds", while
broadcast TV played the original.

And of course the KTMA espisodes have some good gags, the sex jokes and
four letter humor not being very good.
