Trivia:
Did you know there was also an animated version of Abbott & Costello?  It was made by Hanna-Barbara.  This animated series followed the further adventures of the famous comedy duo, featuring Bud Abbott performing as himself. Lou Costello had died several years earlier, and Stan Irwin provided his voice. Most of the episodes centered around various far-fetched schemes to get rich quick, all of which inevitably failed miserably.
