Abbot & Costello: Funniest Routines Vol 1 is a great collection of classic routines from my favorite comedy team. There is close to an hour and a half of comedy on the disc, and they're the type of bits the whole family can enjoy.

There's a wide variety of stuff here, and it all looks great. Two of the bonus features have been colorized, the rest are presented from a great B&W print, that is probably the best one I've seen. The bonus features that are presented in color are the Trailer for "Abbot & Costello Meet Frankenstein" and a Campbell's Soup commercial. Here's hoping for an all out colorized version of A&C Meet Frankenstein!

For the curious among you, here's a list of the included routines:

-Hole in the Wall
-Mustard
-The Magic Act Bit
-Aspirin
-Army Drill
-Niagara Falls
-Jonah and the Whale
-7 X 13 is 28
-The Piano Bit
-The Lemon Bit
-The Dice Game
-Who's on First?

DVD has truly been a blessing to us fans of old time TV. This, and Volume 2, are a great way to have some classic Abbott & Costello routines available to enjoy whenever you want.

Bought it for the who's on first routine. That is a "10". The rest of the routines, on a scale of 1-10, is a 7.

Format: DVD
Legend Films presents "ABBOTT & COSTELLO: FUNNIEST ROUTINES VOL. One" (1951-1954) (78 mins) (Fully Restored/Dolby Digitally Remastered) --- now in COLOR and Glorious Black and White --- William (Bud) Abbott and Lou Costello (born Louis Francis Cristillo) performed together as Abbott and Costello, an American comedy duo whose work in radio, film and television made them the most popular comedy team during the 1940s --- Thanks to the endurance of their most popular and influential routine, "Who's on First?"-- whose rapid-fire word play and comprehension confusion set the preponderant framework for most of their best-known routines--the team is, as a result, featured in the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Universal signed them to a long-term contract, and their second film, Buck Privates, (1941) made them box-office stars --- In most of their films, the plot was a framework for the two comics to reintroduce comedy routines they first performed on stage --- Universal also added glitzy, gratuitous production numbers (a formula borrowed from the Marx Brothers comedies) featuring The Andrews Sisters, Ted Lewis and his Orchestra, and other musical acts --- They made 36 films together between 1940 and 1956 --- Abbott and Costello were among the most popular and highest-paid entertainers in the world during World War II --- Other film successes included Hold That Ghost, Who Done It?, Pardon My Sarong, The Time of Their Lives, Buck Privates Come Home, Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein, and Abbott and Costello Meet the Invisible Man.

I highly recommend this DVD. It was a present to someone who repeatedly had talked about the Who's on First routine between Abbott and Costello. I think I made his day with this surprise. He loved every minute of it and was truly surprised and said Santa did good. Very enjoyable.

From one of their early television shows, the gags just don't stop.I teach a comedy elective for high school students and they loved Whose on First and the sketch where Lou is not supposed to say TIN. The picture could be better, but I'm not going to grouse over a 60 year old tape from n old tv show. This is Bud and Lou at their best when it comes to doing vaudeville-like sketches. The sketches are short, but non stop. I laughed until I had tears in my eyes and I am not an A and C fan. I prefer Laurel and Hardy. For the price, you can't miss this.

Abbott and Costello are still such a treat to see whether you prefer a colorized version or black and white; The wonderful thing of this DVD is that my husband invited the kids to watch and we all had a great time--these days there are not too many DVDS that parents and kids alike will enjoy--but this is one of them!!
