Description by OLDIES.com:

Dubbed the "Master of Musical Mayhem" by Rolling Stone, comedic bandleader Spike Jones and the City Slickers were hugely popular in the '40s, '50s and '60s, known for wacky skits and zany renditions of the day's most popular songs. An accomplished musician, Spike was a true innovator whose comedic madness was lightyears ahead of his time, directly influencing such iconoclasts as Frank Zappa, Ernie Kovacs, 'Weird Al' Yankovic, Stan Freberg and George Carlin. From 1954-61, Spike came into living rooms across the nation with The Spike Jones Show (NBC & CBS). His special brand of music featured hilarious arrangements punctuated by sneezes, hiccups, snores, belches, gunshots, explosions, whistles, bird calls, cowbells, foghorns, and anything else laying around at the time. Now experience this classic television on DVD for the first time, digitally remastered and featuring Spike's biggest hits (over 60 melodies) and most hilarious bits in this set produced and edited under the personal supervision of Spike Jones, Jr.

Product Description:

Experience the very best of THE SPIKE JONES SHOW with this collection featuring more than 60 of the comedic bandleader's biggest hits. A true musical innovator, Jones and his band The City Slickers kept music lovers in stitches from the 1940s to the early-1960s. Not only did the celebrated parody king bring families together in laughter every week, but he also influenced generations of future comics and musicians, from Frank Zappa to Weird Al Yankovick and Billy Crystal. Now, the laughter lives on with this set featuring show regulars Helen Grayco, Billy Barty, Sir Fredrick Gas, and Freddy Morgan, and special guest stars Howdy Doody and Eddy Arnold.,
