Logically illogical - that's Gracie Allen! And you can imagine what that means for her long-suffering husband, George Burns! Here are 16 laugh-packed adventures with the people who live in the Burns house, costarring announcer Bill Goodwin, musical director Meredith Willson, and Mel Blanc (as the Happy Postman)! Listen along as Gracie encourages George to get more romantic and discourages his singing.
They've been called the most successful husband and wife comedy team in history, and you'll find no dissension in these ranks. George Burns and Gracie Allen had a chemistry and wit about them that had no parallel. In this sampling of programs from the 1940s, George and Gracie face new livelihoods (and livestock) and mad undertakings (and misunderstandings). They budget and blunder alongside Bill Goodwin, Meredith Willson, Mel Blanc, and special guest Jack Benny.
You're sure to recognize the voices of Gary Owens, who Radio & Records deemed, "the Babe Ruth of Radio" and the beloved Mel Blanc, who provided the voices of many of the world's most famous cartoon characters, including those of Bugs Bunny, Woody Woodpecker, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Tweety Pie, Sylvester, and The Road Runner, who together provide all voices featured on this performance.
In the spring of 1947, Gracie turned her eye toward things that are fresh and new: a new hat, a new hemline, and a new home. The real estate wrangling of Beverly Hills most brilliantly befuddled wife finds the Burnses bunking with various members of the cast, occupying a janitor's apartment, and even living seperately at the YMCA/YWCA. All's well that ends well...but, until then it's hilarious!
