Did You Know?


Abbott and Costello were keenly aware that much of their audience was children. Not wanting to leave kids with a bad impression of cops because of the slapstick and horseplay that had occurred during the show between the pair and the police, at the end of the show they came out from behind the curtain and Costello gave a little speech directed at the kids who were watching. He told them that what they had just seen was all in fun, that policemen were there to help and protect kids, and that if they were ever in trouble they should never run away from policemen but go to them and the police would help them in any way they could.
