Storyline

Jack proposes recording a lucrative comedy album with Bob Hope, upon finding out how worthless his investments are: as chief stockholder of a harpoon company, Jack gets dubbed Schnook of the South. Fretting that he won't be able to counter Hope's hilarious ad libs, Jack orders his writers to give him all the laughs, but Old Ski Nose is too slick to fall for that. Written by David Stevens

A Chance Classic for Jack Benny and Bob Hope
22 February 2012 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

After some bad investments cost him over $200, spendthrift Jack assigns writers Mel Blanc and Robert Ball to create a script for a comedy record album he hopes to tape with fellow comedian Bob Hope. The comic legends (correctly) assume a Hope & Benny LP album would make them each a lot of money. After Bob agrees to the proposal, Jack goes over the script with secretary Maudie Prickett (as Miss Gordon), who notices Jack has taken all the funny lines. Of course, Bob plans to steal the jokes back. Jack's winning weekly formula works marvelously for his guest star, who might have considered a similar series. Hope and Benny are in top form, playing off their comic personas with hilarious off-the cuff expertise. This episode is a gem for the relatively underutilized duo.
