I see a lot of similarities between Jack Benny lines and the lines of cartoons. Example: (forgot show title) Rochester tells Jack that every time he tries to baste the turkey, the turkey blows the candle out (this was later done in a Bugs Bunny cartoon). Also, on Jack's Christmas show (year?) everyone complains about the puny tree Jack bought, but he says all it needs is some nice decorations. Same thing that Charlie Brown did in the 60's. Maybe it's just a coincidink.
