VIDEO: More Scoop on Y&R's Spoof "The Young and the Recyclable" Featuring The Late Jeanne Cooper!

All the rage this Labor Day weekend in soapland has been  his video brought to the attention first by Daytime Confidential, that is probably the funniest thing we, or many soap fans have ever seen!

And what is even better is with video spoofs like the cast of Y&R’s “The Young and the Recyclable”, this week’s episode of  Michelle Stafford’s web series, The Stafford Project featuring Joshua Morrow (Nick, Y&R), and  All My Children’s Cady McClain  (Dixie) spoofing being an interviewer as Suzy F*cking Homemaker chatting with OLTL’s Melissa Archer (Natalie), those that are, or have been in the soap industry, are poking some serious fun at themselves.  And their faithful audience is having fun with it too, because when you break it down, soaps can be pretty outlandish!

Now “The Young and the Recyclable” features the late great Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor) in a video that tells the tale of what it would be like if Y&R recast the role of Katherine Chancellor!   On-Air On-Soaps spoke to an insider today to get some more details on where this video came from and more!  We learned that it was most likely shot in 2009 and shown at one of the Y&R anniversary parties for the cast and crew.  We also learned that Jeanne Cooper loved being part of it, and that since her passing, many of the cast members wanted to make sure they had a copy of this on DVD, as it was such a wonderful inside joke and treasure.  Finally, the scene where you see Jeanne Cooper getting into a war of words with Jess Walton (Jill), was completely ad-libbed, which is why you see Jess almost busting out laughing.  We have a feeling a lot of this was ab-libbed though!  And wait till the end of the video, where Eric Braeden (Victor) attempts to dress up as Jeanne Cooper/Katherine Chancellor.  Joshua Morrow also proves yet again, he is absolutely amazing at satire in one of our favorite moments!! And might we add, so is the late former Y&R co-executive producer, Paul Rauch who makes an appearance, and keep your eyes for Greg Rikaart (Kevin) throughout who is key to the entire story!

Below, watch “The Young and the Recyclable” and let us know what you thought of it? What were your favorite parts of it?  We thought how ever this got out on the Internet, it was a perfect way to also honor the humorous side of Jeanne, as we come to the heavy drama of Katherine’s memorial episodes  on Y&R next week on September 3rd and 4th on CBS.

Thought this was one of the funniest things I have seen. Also a reminder how Jeanne Cooper lived life to its fullest and loved every minute of it. Great reminder of the feisty dame she was! In all honesty though, Eric Braeden stole the show at the end. Nobody should be consuming a beverage when they see him lol.

This was the most stupid thing that I have ever watched! How dare you make fun of my favorite show” The Young and the Restless! It wasn’t funny at all. And I took it to be an insult. I love this show and all of the characters in it.

THANK YOU i totally agree go take your meds you may feel better after! This was absolutely hilarious. Very Tongue in cheek and shows that when a soap or any show can make fun of itself it is not going anywhere for a long time. By the way Young and the Restless made this THEMSELVES SO NO ONE WAS INSULTING THEM. They were taking a lighthearted few minutes to poke fun at themselves lighten up people its a joke by the cast and crew of young and restless GEESH

George you asked me if it requires more intelligence to appreciate certain forms of humor–I don’t know, but I do know it requires more intelligence to defend one’s viewpoint based on sound argument rather than just putting someone down on a personal level for theirs. Telling someone they don’t have a sense of humor just because they don’t find something you find funny is a lazy argument — satire isn’t everyone cup of tea, just like I personally find bathroom humor and slapstick boring. Seeing a man get hit in the family jewels on AFV simply has no appeal for… Read more »

Linda– I know you are getting flack for saying you did not find this clip funny that you in fact thought it was insulting to the show and characters you love. First off let me say to those who are putting Linda down for her thoughts, that humor is SUBJECTIVE and NOT FACTUAL, which means something is funny if you think it is. Just like everyone has different tastes in movies, literature, television shows, favorite foods, we can have different tastes in humor. If I find something funny and you don’t that doesn’t take away from my enjoyment, and likewise… Read more »

The fact that you spent so much time explaining satire to an adult speaks volumes. Yes everyone in entitled to have different likes and dislikes(I think we all get that) but sometimes it takes and requires more intelligence to appreciate certain humor.

Linda and Becky…do you not see the humor in this? And Linda, THEY are making fun of themselves. It’s HILARIOUS. It was made when Rauch was being forced with budget cuts…it shows how ludicrous he felt the cuts were and how the big names of the show…Cooper and Braeden would really NEVER be let go. All the players are here…I especially loved Greg…his voice over for K-Y. Even though it was short, I also loved Eileen and Melody’s bit. It just goes to show you that the cast is talented, and can more than handle comedy AND poking fun at… Read more »

Unfortunately, I only saw a small portion of this – It suddenly stopped, and I could not get it to progress further. Too bad, as what I did see was funny, and I loved seeing these wonderful Actors spoof themselves. And too, such a rare privilege seeing Jeanne Cooper doing Comedy. She is badly missed!!!

OLTL Favorite Susan Batten to Guest-Star on General Hospital

A very familiar face to the town of Llanview and the beloved One Life to Live, will be appearing on your screens this week on General Hospital.

Susan Batten (Ex-Luna Moody, OLTL) will make a few guest appearances in scenes with Sasha played by Sofia Mattsson.

According to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now, Batten will play the role of home shopping-star Flora Gardens!

Batten former boss, Frank Valentini (executive producer, GH) called Susan and said about the role: , “Okay, there’s this character named Flora Gardens.”  To which Susan responded, “Does she have teeth?”   After the two shared a laugh, Susan said “yes’ to the role.

OLTL fans will remember Luna’s torrid relationship with Max Holden (James DePaiva).

The actress/writer/producer reported that she was a ‘still very nervous’ acting on soap again (she last appeared on One Life in 2012), but said once she got into the rhythm of the shooting and delivering the lines it was all good.

So, looking forward to seeing Susan on GH? Comment below. But first, take a moment to stroll down memory lane in this clip from OLTL, when Max proposes to Luna.

Peter Bergman Signs 5-Year Deal with The Young and the Restless

Some of the hottest news on Daytime Emmy night was the reveal that 23-time Daytime Emmy nominee, and 3-time Emmy-winner, Peter Bergman is staying put at The Young and the Restless for quite some time to come, in fact, at least five more years.

Bergman, who plays Genoa City staple, Jack Abbott, has inked a new five-year deal to stay with the CBS daytime drama series, which is a significant contract in the world of soaps.  The usual contact for actors is somewhere between one and four years, with thirteen-week or twenty-six-week cycle, if the show were to not pick up an actors option.

While Y&R has been renewed thus far through the 2024 TV season, it would seem this move to ensure Bergman is sticking around as the show moves past its 50th year on the air, is a vote of confidence by Sony Pictures Television and CBS that the top-rated daytime drama will live on.

Deadline first reported the contract news.  Peter joined Y&R back in 1989, after first successful soap foray on All My Children as Dr, Cliff Warner.

So, what do you think about Peter signing on for five more years at Y&R? Comment below.
