Jack Benny Would Have Saved Money on eBay

The Jack Benny Video Library

The Christmas TV Episodes   H is first episode Christmas shopping is the best,turning the clerk (Mel Blanc) into a nervous wreck! Jack Benny's second episode is about New Year. The Beverly Hillbillies Christmas Day episode is good,even if it's just to see Granny trying to figure out what she thinks is a washing machine,but is infact a tv. I'm sure Ozzie & Harriet never aired in England,it's not so much funny,but very strange acting,it's so innocent and wonderful, almost like another world compared to todays teen garbage,where morals are unknown. I do hope someone releases many more Jack Benny shows,and more American Christmas shows from the wonderful 50s.
