: Can anyone tell me where the phrase "No comment from the peanut gallery" originated. Why Peanut gallery?
The old U.S. children's television show Howdy Doody (with Buffalo Bob) had a Peanut Gallery. If memory serves, that's where the audience sat. I don't know if that's the original Peanut Gallery or not. Anyone?
