When Conan O’Brien’s new talk show launches on TBS Nov. 8, he plans to use the comic bits he created during his NBC tenure–such as the masturbating bear–and he hopes that NBC will take him to court over the issue, reports TV Guide.
Conan told Rolling Stone, "What I really wanna do is be sued over the bear and then appear in court with the masturbating bear. ‘Your Honor, this bear can’t help himself!’"
O’Brien explained that he is intent on using his signature characters and sketches on his new show. "If there’s something we did for a long time that we’ve established as ours, we’ll figure out a way to do it," said O’Brien.
