Description by OLDIES.com:

America's funniest cheapskate appears in four episodes featuring musical performances and celebrity guests. Join the always beleaguered Benny and featured regulars Mary Livingston, Eddie "Rochester" Anderson and Don Wilson in a series of side-splitting comic situations.

Episode 1: In a series of flashbacks, Jack recalls his first meeting with Mary, who is working as a clerk in a department store and his feeble attempts to ask her for a date.

Episode 2: Jack plans to dramatize his life story on the show. An adorable boy shows up to audition for the part as Jack as a child, but his ruthless agent demands $2000 to hire his client!

Episode 3: Jack is about to introduce singer Bob Crosby when he is interrupted by a precocious young girl asking for an autograph who insists that her name is Margaret Truman and that she lives in Washington DC!

Episode 4: Jack visits the show's sponsor to renew his contract. What Jack doesn't know is that the scheming Fred Allen is trying to convince the company that Benny should be fired and he should be the new star! In a surprise appearance, Eddie Cantor suddenly enters to turn the tables on both Benny and Allen!

Product Description:
