Overview

Funnyman Jack Benny's eponymous series originally debuted in late October 1950 on CBS. The format was neither a sitcom nor a variety show per se, but instead a series of well-honed Benny routines (about his stinginess, his basement vault of money, his ineptitude on the violin and other trademarks) done as sketch comedy and paired with humorous monologues and laid-back vaudeville shtick by the comedian. Supporting Benny were regulars including Eddie 'Rochester' Anderson, Don Wilson Mel Blanc, Dennis Day and others. However one categorizes it, the show was enormously popular, running for an astonishing 14 years on CBS. It then jumped ship, moved to NBC and ran for an additional season on that network, from September 1964 through September 1965. This box set contains a sprawling compilation of some of the most popular material from that program.

Unfortunately, I cannot comment on the item because it did not arrive in time for our holiday trip - or to give as a Christmas gift. The seller had said it would be sent in 3-4 days, but it had not been sent 2 weeks later when we left town. I was quite disappointed that it was (apparently) finally mailed much later than promised, and would not order from this seller again.
