Synopsis

Cookie entrepreneur Wally "Famous" Amos appears as himself in this episode, wherein immigrant mechanic Latka Gravas (Andy Kaufman) learns a few hard lessons about the American capitalist system. Using a special recipe handed down by his dear departed grandmother, Latka hopes to market his family's traditional cookies and make a fortune. Alas, one of the recipe's main ingredients is what can be euphemistically described as a "controlled substance" -- and it looks like Latka's business venture will land him in the slammer. This episode was originally slated to air on January 28, 1981.
