Bob Barker has finally left The Price is Right after nearly 35 years. The favored television show of children home sick from school is now anchored by Drew Carey -- a slightly less suave, gentlemanly comedian.

It's hard to understand what exactly it is about the game show that has captivated -- or at least served as an alternative to reading -- generations of daytime television viewers. Watching people on a cheesy set trying to guess the price of laundry detergent hardly seems like it would make for compelling television.

Perhaps it was the models -- even the ones who accused the now 84-year old Barker of sexual harassment. Whatever it was, here are YouTube videos of my two favorite Bob Barker Moments of all-time.

First, his classic fistfight with Adam Sandler from the movie Happy Gilmore. And then there's the less well-known clip of Bob trying to keep his cool with the worst Price is Right player ever.
