A Classic
10 December 2006 | by (Springfield, Missouri) – See all my reviews

Several of the conventions of the old Jack Benny radio show were incorporated into his television program, for obvious and welcome reasons; but none were transformed better than this one. It is simply hilarious. Obviously a favorite premise of the entire production team, done year after year on the radio, many of Benny's regular character actors appear here doing wonderful turns in the famous Christmas shopping episode. It will not seem as funny to only report it, but Jack goes in to a department store and picks something out for Don Wilson, buying it from Mel Blanc; and going back over and over to have him unwrap it, add a note, sign the note, and finally exchange it. Very well done, expertly managed, many old viewers would vote it the best episode of the entire series--thank goodness it's still available today.
