Better Than Nothing,

This review is from: The Jerry Lewis Show Collection (DVD)
We've been spoiled by TV Box Sets that are uncut and play the episodes in their entirety which makes the Jerry Lewis Show Collection seem not worth the money but it is!
For the reviewer who complained about not even having the original show opening titles...well, I've seen the uncut version and the original opening is simply a primitive title card with four index fingers pointing at the guest stars name so your not missing much. If anything, they've improved it.
And as for the sketches being edited...they may be, but it only helps the pacing because they are quite long.
It's a joy to see this show again, in any capacity, and marvel at the energy and playfulness of the performers. I forgot how charming and funny Barbara Feldon was. And you just can't beat Joey Heatherton's legs.
The sketches may not have the bite of SNL but they are a moment in time you can't get back.
Jerry also recreates some of his memorial music mimes like the Typewriter Song and the Conductor.
I would buy this LADY!

I recall a skit from this program. Jerry was a fried chicken delivery boy and delivers it to Barbara Feldon. During the sketch, Jerry gets his face pressed into Barbara (let's just say "below the belt"). Now I was only 13 when I saw this, but it made a memory for me. Is this skit in the box set?
