Steve Martin's The Winds of Whoopie
Steve Martin's The Winds of Whoopie, a.k.a. simply The Winds of Whoopie, was a 1983 one-hour comedy TV special on NBC, produced and written by Steve Martin. The title was a take-off of The Winds of War, which premiered as a TV miniseries on the same night on ABC. In a 30-second spot, Orson Welles says: "Why spend 18 hours watching someone else's war, when you know how it comes out? We win, and then have to buy all their cars. Watch Steve Martin's The Winds of Whoopie. See it all in one hour on Sunday."
