Description by OLDIES.com:
Hit the open road with Bud and Lou as the boys travel cross-country and around the world in this digitally restored and re-mastered collection. Includes six of the most beloved episodes from "The Abbott and Costello Show" with fan favorites Sid Fields, Hillary Brooke, Mr. Bacciagalupe, Mike the Cop, Stinky and Bingo the Chimp along for the ride, of course!
THE ABBOTT AND COSTELLO SHOW, which originally aired in syndication and on network daytime from 1951 through 1953, was not simply one of the most re-run situation comedies in the history of U.S. broadcasting, but one of the most influential, given the extent to which it introduced an offbeat, absurdist style of humor seen decades later on SEINFELD and other programs. Its storylines were deliberately skimpy and insubstantial - narrative hooks on which to repeatedly hang the titular duo's stock gags, such as "Who's On First" and "The Lemon Bit." This box set features 6 of the original half-hour episodes linked via the theme of Bud and Lou traveling on the road and around the world. Guest stars include Sid Fields, Mr. Bacciagalupe], Mike the Cop, and Bingo the Chimp.
