Jack Benny was a regular on his own radio program since 1932. He brought the program, with his underplayed humor, to TV along with his radio regulars. Jack, who remained 39-years-old, kept his money in his basement and drove his old Maxwell car just as he had done on the radio. Written by

Oh, it's not that big a difference. You're twenty-five and I'm thirty-nine.
I know, Jack. But what about twenty-five years from now when I'm fifty and you're thirty-nine?
Gee, I never thought of that.
