Schloogel - Sacred traditional post-marriage ceremony performed by the newlywed auto mechanic Latka Gravas (Andy Kaufman) and his wife Simka (Carol Kane) on episode No. 91 "The Schloogel Show (a.k.a. Love Un-American Style)" on the sitcom TAXI/ABC/NBC/1978-83.

Simka and Latka Gravas - TAXI
Simka & Latka Gravas

In the old country where Latka and Simka were born, there was a ceremony wherein newlyweds in an expression of love and sharing of their new found happiness, would introduce their closest acquaintances to "ideal" marriage partners. If the newlywed's friends did not attend the ceremony, it was considered a great insult.

Following the tradition of their country, Latka and Simka hosted a party at which Alex Rieger (Judd Hirsch), Elaine Nardo (Marilu Henner), Tony Banta (Tony Danza), Louie De Palma (Danny DeVito), and Jim Ignatowski (Christopher Lloyd) were supposed to meet their ideal life partner.
