In the earlier radio series, Mel Blanc frequently guest-starred as Mr. Postman. Rolfe Sedan took over the role on TV, and the character was given the name Mr. Beasley. Mr. Beasley is also the name of the mailman from the "Blondie" comics and films, and the characters share a similarity - in "Blondie," Mr. Beasley tried desperately to avoid Dagwood Bumstead, who was always plowing over him on his way out of the house; the "Burns & Allen" character went out of his way to avoid Gracie Allen, who would always detain him to talk his ear off.

This show was, please don't kill me for saying this, even better than "I Love Lucy". Lucy was good, but this was better. Gracie and Blanche(Bea Benederett, voice of Betty Rubble and original choice for Ethel Mertz) would pull one crazy stunt after another. Meanwhile Bill Goodwin(later replaced by Harry Von Zell) would attract all the girls, and George would step out of the scene to narrate(A technique now used in the Disney cartoon show "The Weekenders"). Gracie's "Illogical logic", as George called it, cracks you up every time. By the way, the radio version featured music of Meredith Wilson(famous for writing "The Music Man").
