WATCH: Rock Hudson & Bea Arthur Trip Balls In “Turnin’ On”

We’ve plundered Bea Arthur’s 1980 TV special before, but this clip (courtesy of FabTV) is new to us: In it, Bea and guest Rock Hudson bemoan “the new morality” (snicker, snicker) and sing an old-school showtune about how everybody is sniffing, snorting smoking and swallowing their troubles away nowadays.

Toke up and enjoy!
