They're releasing all his old Late Night episodes.  I actually remember catching this episode at random when I stayed up late one night.  I loved Conan as a kid.

Just saw the very first episode again, and wow, the lukewarm reviews at the time were really unfair, and apparently based more on him not being Letterman than the actual quality of the show. The writing was sharp as hell for most of the bits except for the headlines segment, Conan was surprisingly energetic and charismatic despite being a novice, and John Goodman was awesome.

Can't wait to see a lot of the old surreal sketches and conceptual bits, especially when the original UCBers were still there--that was always my favorite aspect of his show, and it's a shame he jettisoned it when he went mainstream.

He still did them a few times after 2000, iirc.

And to be fair, I'm sure there's been a bit at some point where Conan punched a horse.

I think my favorite moment of Conan was when they revamped old monsters for Halloween one year. They got to the Liposuction Dracula ("I vant to suck your ass!") and the camera just went back to Conan who sat there, laughed about it, and said "I'm sorry we did that" or something to that effect

I saw most episodes of Conan during '95-'97. Always loved his show.
