Default The Abbott and Costello Show - 100th Anniversary Collection - Season One DVD Review

Lou Abbott & Bud Costello star in this 1950s sitcom, following their crazy adventures. Think of it as "I Love Lucy" but with two wacky guys getting into many hilarious situations. This 5-disc collectors set contains all 26 episodes from the very first season restored visually and uncut! Also included are Lou Costello's home movies, from the 1940s and 1950s, many in full color and with sound. Also, for the first time ever, included on this set is the restored short "10,000 Kids and a Cop" which was made in 1948. This is a must have set for Abbott & Costello fans everywhere!

This must be the set produced in cooperation with the Costello family and his estate! There were a LOT of home movies Lou shot on location and featuring his friends, family and relatives, and that 1948 short was tied-in with a fund-raising organization, I believe {perhaps the "Lou Costello Jr. Youth Foundation"?**. And the first 26 episodes of the filmed series are among LOU'S best!
