Product Description:

As one of the most frequently syndicated situation comedies in television history -- and reportedly one of the major influences on such later series as SEINFELD -- THE ABBOTT AND COSTELLO SHOW (1951-1953) drew enormous audiences with a format that was essentially an excuse to set up some of the titular comedy team's best-known and loved gags. It had Bud Abbott and Lou Costello playing "themselves," as unemployed actors sharing an apartment in a rooming house, surrounded by nutty neighbors; many episodes found Costello undertaking one crazy get-rich-quick scheme or another, which invariably blew up in the pair's faces. This collection presents all original 52 episodes of the program, back to back, plus bonus supplements including a "Routine Reel" from season one, a 1978 television special entitled DEAR ABBOTT, excerpts from Lou Costello's home movies, bonus interviews with Chris Costello and Paddy Costello, and much more.

Rating 5.0 Bargain of a Price Movie Lover: from Maryland -- April, 7, 2010

This is a bargain of a price. A different company originally released this TV series in two box sets, season one and season two, and at a price of $30 per box set. But when they went out of print, the price went up and boy was it expensive. Cost $80 plus dollars for season one alone! But good news is that they are now available again so don't let the $50 scare you. It's cheaper than it's ever been!
