: Every year Carlton Cards & Hallmark has special ornaments for christmas.They've never had a Jack Benny ornament.They aways have someone like laurel & hardy or Charlie Chaplin.This year Carlton has Abbott & costello.Could it have something to do with Jack's estate?.Well maybe next year.
Could be, as they'd have to license the image from the estate. But if you see a picture of Charlie Chaplin, you know immediately who it is. Same thing with Laurel and Hardy, or the Three Stooges (who I believe were also on ornaments).
The Benny characters are more subtle, and since their biggest days were on
radio...not very visual.
