This is for all of you who are new to Jack, or those of
you who don't know what shows to listen to. There
are a treasure of Christmas shopping shows Jack did
from 1946-1954. The whole "buying a gift for Don" started
in 1946 when Jack couldn't decided whether to buy Don
metal tipped or plastic tipped shoe laces. The other
shopping gags over the next few years included buying
Don cuff links (couldn't make up his mind on what to
inscribe), a wallet (spend $40 or $1.98?), stuffed dates,
paints (oils or acryllics?), and a gopher trap (should
it kill the poor critters or trap them alive?). If any
of the rest of you can think of what else Jack had trouble
deciding what to buy Don, please share it. These are
wonderful shows, and they really emphasize Mel Blanc's
talent and comic genius.
Merry Christmas and Happy Listening!
