"Costello in particular was a master reactor, especially when he knew he was about to get swindled or smacked." -- Grade: B

Description by OLDIES.com:

Who's On First? You'll be on Cloud 9 with this rare and riotous collection honoring the 100th birthday of Lou Costello and featuring the landmark "Abbott & Costello Show" that Jerry Seinfeld calls the inspiration for his own hit series!

This remarkable 5-disc collection contains all 26 episodes of the first season (1952-1953), complete and unedited, digitally remastered and looking better than ever. In addition to Bud and Lou, there's the unforgettable supporting cast: Sid Fields, Hillary Brooke, Joe "Stinky" Besser and Gordon "Mike the Cop" Jones.

PLUS: Never-before-seen home movies of Lou Costello and his family from the 1940s and '50s - many in full color with sound! (Even Bud manages to make a few "guest appearances.") And, for the first time anywhere, the recently restored short "10,000 Kids And A Cop" made in 1948, featuring Bud and Lou, as well as Jimmy Stewart and William Bendix. To round things out, Lou's daughters, Paddy and Chris, share warm and wonderful anecdotes about their father in exclusive interviews. A treasure for Abbott & Costello fans everywhere!

Routines include: "The Drugstore," "The Dentist Office," "Jail," "The Vacation," "The Birthday Party," "Alaska," "The Vacuum Cleaner Salesman," "The Army Story," "Pots & Pans," "The Charity Bazaar," "The Western Story," "The Haunted House," "Peace & Quiet," "Hungry," "The Music Lovers," "The Politician," "Getting A Job," "Bingo," "Hillary's Birthday," "Television," "Las Vegas," "Little Old Lady," "The Actors' Home," "Police Rookies" and "Safari."
