listed air date incorrect
26 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Although this is an excellent episode, as all were, I am puzzled by the air date listed in the synopsis. This show supposedly aired on Nov 28, 1954, putting it in the fifth season. However, Barry Gordon, who plays Harry Johnson, wasn't born until December, 1948. This would make him five years old when this episode supposedly aired. Dennis Holmes, who played Jimmy Evans, wasn't born until October, 1950, which would have made him four years old. The third clue comes at the end of the program when Jack Benny lists Fabian as one of the candidates to play him in the show. Fabian's first television appearance, that I can find, is on a Red Skelton episode in 1960. This does not take anything away from the quality of the program, I just thought that it was interesting. This happens to be a pet peeve of mine. I appreciate accuracy in these episode logs.
