Did Family Guy Start the "cutaway to gag" trend?

What's the earliest tv show you can remember that used Family Guy - style cut-away/flashbacks?

Most of my favorite comedy shows do that now. Arrested Development, 30 Rock, Archer, and The Office a little. "This reminds me of a similar incident..." (cut to sight gag).
But Golden Girls didn't do it, and Cosby Show, and Seinfeld. Whats the earliest show you remember doing this?
I'll be somehow sad if it turns out Family Guy started this.
