"Stupid Pet Tricks"

"Stupid Pet Tricks", and, subsequently, "Stupid Human Tricks", are well-known segments on Late Night with David Letterman, and, later, the Late Show with David Letterman.

Created by Merrill Markoe for David Letterman's short-lived CBS morning show, The David Letterman Show, the concept was carried over to Letterman's Late Night, and debuted on that series in 1982.
The show originally solicited pets to appear using this simple ad in the New York Times classifieds:
  • Late Night with David Letterman on
  • CBS will feature pets who have been
  • trained to do unusual things. Pets
  • must be amateur & owners must be
  • willing to appear w/ them at auditions
  • & on the show.
The inaugural segment featured a dog named "Muggsy" who would sneeze on command, and another dog that would answer the phone.
Based on the instant success of "Stupid Pet Tricks", Letterman devised a similar off-shoot: "Stupid Human Tricks", which was identical in nature to the Pet Tricks, except that people were now doing the wacky stunts.
