Trivia

The bulk of the filmed episodes were shot over the course of a day with two cameras. Episodes were then edited and screened for a preview audience, and audio of the crowd's reaction was recorded to give an organic reaction to each joke rather than "canned laughter." At the end of each preview screening, George and Gracie would come out and film their "Say goodnight, Gracie" closing tag scene live in front of the audience. See more »

Quotes

George Burns: Say "Good night," Gracie.
Gracie Allen: Good night.

Best comedy show of the past
6 June 2004 | by (California) – See all my reviews

I love to watch the Burns and Allen show as it is one to the unique shows that we had. Gracie and George were the perfect couple. You had to laugh as she took things so to there meaning and it worked perfect. I sometimes watch the 70's show and in a way Red and Kitty almost seem to be them in another era but still not exactly the same. I just find that their looks like Kitty's hair and Red even has a similar look like George. Back to George and Gracie now. I would love to have all their shows, especially the ones with that TV that could George could see what was going on in the show. That is something that really was to cool. I hope to see them release all their shows as I have only a few and wish that all were on DVD. One more thing I feel that if the show was aired more often and some people would show it to their children, it could bring a new light. I know this as when I show it on DVD to my kids they are older like 17 and up really start to get into it after a few shows. Hurry for Burns and Allen, and also their neighbors too.
