The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show with guest star Sheldon Leonard (1952)

The Burns & Allen Show is pretty easy to find as many episodes survived and are readily available in the public domain - in bargain bins, the local library and as filler on fringe television stations. However, rarely do you see an episode in as fine condition as this one - both pristine looking and complete.

Jeopardy with guest Mel Brooks (1973)

The Mike Douglas Show with co-host Bobby Darin and guest Little Richard (1970)

The Mike Douglas Show with co-host Bobby Darin and guests Eloise Laws, Rona Barrett and Ace Trucking Company (1970)

A super young Fred Willard is in this episode with the Ace Trucking Company in the final segments. This is Monday night's episode.

Don Knotts' Television Debut!!! (1951)

This is a 1951 episode of the soap opera Search For Tomorrow - Don Knotts' very first TV gig. And although he isn't supposed to be, as he nervously waddles back and forth in his sleep, he is hilarious. 


Hudson's Bay Company Commercials with Monty Hall (1983-84)

I have never ever been a fan of Winnipeg born Monty Hall although I do enjoy many of the shows he has been involved with. That has nothing to with Monty himself. Here he is "giving back" to his native Canada by shilling for the department store chain that had a very suspect history with Native Canadians.
