LET'S MAKE A DEAL has been the object of comedic parodies many times over the past forty years.
The most notable parody was on the Let's Make A Deal episode of THE ODD COUPLE in 1973, in which Monty Hall appeared with series' stars Jack Klugman and Tony Randall. (The following year Monty appeared on another episode of THE ODD COUPLE entitled A Different Drummer.)
In 1979, the animated film THE FLINTSONES MEET ROCKULA AND FRANKENSTONE opened with a game show entitled Make a Deal or Don't with host "Monty Marble."
In a 1975 episode of the situation comedy SANFORD AND SON, the series star Redd Foxx appeared on a game show called Wheel and Deal with host "Harry Monty" played by John Barbour.
The animated characters in the the cartoon WACKY & PACKY took part in a game-show spoof entitled Let's Make A Bundle. The host of the show was named Monty Tall.
The SIMPSONS animated series included an episode in which Mr. Burns played a game show host patterned after Monty Hall. In the episode, entitled Homer Goes to College, Mr. Burns attempts to "make a deal" with inspectors from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
George Carlin's comedy album FM & AM includes a free-wheeling discussion of LET'S MAKE A DEAL. And Cheech and Chong used LET'S MAKE A DEAL as comedic fodder for routines entitled Let's Make A Dope Deal and Let's Make A New Dope Deal on two of their comedy albums.
Jimmy Buffett declares that his "whole life lies waiting behind Door Number Three" in a very-popular song parody on his A-1-A album. The song Door Number Tree (written by Buffett and Steve Goodman) is also heard in the documentary film Deal .
