An episode of "The Chevy Show". This episode features Edie Adams, Janet Blair, John Raitt, Carol Burnett, and Mickey Shaughnessy. A fun variety show from 1958, telecast live. Contains the original commercials. Unfortunately, a watermark appears during one of Edie's segments. Ugh.
The Buick Berle Show - 1954
A 1954 episode of Milton Berle's "The Buick-Berle Show", a variety series. In this episode, we have a sketch mocking canned laughter, Milton meeting a wacky teenager, an interestingly dated dancing sequence, scenes with Milton pretending to break his leg, and a special name-dropping opening song about television. Picture quality is not so good. Obviously Buick's attempt at aiming at a well-endowed television audience. The series aired on NBC and was live, something mentioned in the show itself.
Episodes from the comic/variety series from early TV.
