[5:07 PM] Laura Leibowitz: Excellent!

[5:07 PM] Laura Leibowitz: Any Benny-related questions before we start?

[5:08 PM] Laura Leibowitz: How 'bout that Al Gordon interview...

[5:08 PM] Laura Leibowitz: Steven - Having seen Ringo's band myself a couple times, I think he would have said it was a good show!

[5:09 PM] Kathy Fuller Seeley: https://www.amazon.com/Benny-Golden-American-Radio-Comedy/dp/0520295056/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1...

[5:11 PM] Laura Leibowitz: I have a couple items (the lineup was actually Seth's idea, believe it or not)

[5:11 PM] R.Hookie: Mine's in the dining room... I need to read through that too

[5:11 PM] Kathy Fuller Seeley: this is true, R. Hookie, I am just sorry that the hardback version (hugely expensive) does NOT have a paper book jacket, so the pb is it. I am happy to send an autographed pb one to anybody for $30    (again, a bargain in the world)

[5:11 PM] Laura Leibowitz: The first one is on YouTube.

[5:11 PM] Kathy Fuller Seeley: yay, a video!

[5:11 PM] Laura Leibowitz: The second one kept getting banned by YouTube

[5:12 PM] R.Hookie: Boo Youtube!!!

[5:12 PM] Laura Leibowitz: So I found a way to put it on jackbenny.org and put it in the playlist.

[5:12 PM] Laura Leibowitz: That said, I think we may need to download it locally to view it.

[5:12 PM] Laura Leibowitz: But we'll see what happens.

[5:12 PM] Kathy Fuller Seeley: you are amazing, Laura!

[5:12 PM] Laura Leibowitz: Well, let's see if we can see the videos before I accept that compliment!

[5:13 PM] R.Hookie: OK, so we need to download it?

[5:13 PM] Laura Leibowitz: I'm not sure.

[5:13 PM] Steve Archer: Hopefully it is not banned from YouTube because it is dirty Laura, we have delicate sensibilities. LOL

[5:13 PM] Laura Leibowitz: Let's see what happens, and your patience is appreciated.

[5:13 PM] Kathy Fuller Seeley: haha Steve A

[5:13 PM] Laura Leibowitz: Jack Benny porn...

[5:13 PM] Laura Leibowitz: https://www.watch2gether.com/rooms/ijbfc-mbrm7osc3l5p85x3t9

[5:13 PM] steven andrew shay: Kathy- I'd love a signed pb. Do we send the $30 to a p.o. box?

[5:15 PM] Kathy Fuller Seeley: hey Steven, just paypal me at khfuller@aol.com   or check to snail mail  khfuller 1800 mockingbird lane leander tx 78641

[5:16 PM] steven andrew shay: Thanks! Didn't the Munsters live on Mockingbird Lane?

[5:19 PM] Kathy Fuller Seeley: steven, YES they did!!! we are their neighbors : )

[5:19 PM] steven andrew shay: I love it! LOL.

[5:19 PM] steven andrew shay: I hope the munstermobile isn't too loud or smoky.

[5:21 PM] Kathy Fuller Seeley: its OK as we have a yard filled with 60 year old volvos, but the trash they put out, hahahaha

[5:24 PM] steven andrew shay: Well, when they cut roses they just save the stem, so you may find a bouquet of buds in their trash ;-)

[5:24 PM] steven andrew shay: Oh wait...That's the Addams Family. HAHAHAHAA!

[5:52 PM] R.Hookie: Well here we are, back at the chat..

[5:52 PM] Laura Leibowitz: So yeah...that was an in-house "gag reel" that was done for the WB staff.

[5:52 PM] Laura Leibowitz: Hope no one was offended by the language!

[5:53 PM] R.Hookie: Pretty tame compared to TV today

[5:53 PM] Laura Leibowitz: So what do folks think of Jack being the caveman?

[5:53 PM] Laura Leibowitz: I've been dubious of that for a while.

[5:53 PM] Steve Archer: I think it's inspired by Jack....like Barney Rubble being inspired by Art Carney.

[5:53 PM] Laura Leibowitz: Steve - I can see that.

[5:53 PM] Steve Archer: Maybe not supposed to "be" Jack.

[5:53 PM] R.Hookie: Yes

[5:54 PM] Laura Leibowitz: Fair nuff.

[5:54 PM] Laura Leibowitz: Any thoughts on the other cartoons?

[5:54 PM] Laura Leibowitz: I had "Mouse That Jack Built" on that same one they banned

[5:55 PM] Steve Archer: Mouse that Jack Built is the best Benny tribute

[5:55 PM] R.Hookie: Youtube!!!! Boo!!!!

[5:55 PM] Laura Leibowitz: Yes, I was going to have that as my finale, but there it is.

[5:55 PM] Laura Leibowitz: I'll have to do some more experimentation on being able to stream from other sites.

[5:55 PM] Steve Archer: I liked the animation sojourn!

[5:56 PM] Laura Leibowitz: Someone once went through Malibu Beach Party and identified everyone.  I was impressed.

[5:56 PM] R.Hookie: Check archive.org

[5:56 PM] Laura Leibowitz: Hookie

[5:56 PM] Steve Archer: Proof once again Mel Blanc is the center of the universe

[5:56 PM] Laura Leibowitz: I did...couldn't find it.

[5:56 PM] R.Hookie: Ok

[5:56 PM] Laura Leibowitz: Good thought, though.

[5:57 PM] Steve Archer: Malibu Beach Party is weird since Frankie and Annette aren't in it.

[5:57 PM] R.Hookie: Well, not good enough

[5:57 PM] Laura Leibowitz: Steve - Well said

[5:57 PM] Laura Leibowitz: Any requests for next month/

[5:57 PM] R.Hookie: Annette wasn't even a Mousekaterr yet

[5:57 PM] Laura Leibowitz: Duck Jell-O

[5:58 PM] R.Hookie: spelling

[5:58 PM] Laura Leibowitz: Hookie - You're thinking of Sonia Henie

[5:59 PM] Laura Leibowitz: Looks like we lost a few people in the transition back here

[5:59 PM] Laura Leibowitz: Maybe they got impatient with the cartoon mishaps.

[5:59 PM] Steve Archer: Lost in Transition!

[5:59 PM] steven andrew shay: my apple laptop freezes

[5:59 PM] R.Hookie: Thaw it out

[5:59 PM] steven andrew shay: haha

[5:59 PM] Laura Leibowitz: Indeed.  He's a Benny fan you know... (Bill Murray)

[6:00 PM] Steve Archer: Not possible if you are on the east coast

[6:00 PM] Laura Leibowitz: Yeah, you're all in the deep freeze.

[6:00 PM] Laura Leibowitz: OK, thanks for bearing with me in the experiment.

[6:01 PM] Laura Leibowitz: Any requests for next month?

[6:01 PM] Steve Archer: Good idea for the cartoons!

[6:01 PM] R.Hookie: We have 2 days of 30, then really cold again

[6:01 PM] Laura Leibowitz: Or other Benny questions?

[6:01 PM] Laura Leibowitz: Steve - Credit to Seth on that!

[6:02 PM] R.Hookie: I suppose the birthday shows have been overdone....

[6:02 PM] Laura Leibowitz: Yeah, I was thinking of doing another unreleased TV show

[6:02 PM] R.Hookie: Works for me

[6:02 PM] Steve Archer: I got my 39 cents worth of entertainment for tonight!  Anything is good with me.  Unreleased TV is always fascinating

[6:02 PM] Laura Leibowitz: I wish I had more of it.

[6:03 PM] Laura Leibowitz: OK, thanks for stopping, folks!  And thanks again for your patience.  Good being able to share the cartoon gems with you.

[6:03 PM] Steve Archer: Night all!

[6:03 PM] Laura Leibowitz: Stay warm!
