Editorial Reviews

Is Who still on first if it's the second season? You'll find out with this rare and riotous collection honoring the 100th birthday of Lou Costello and featuring the landmark Abbott & Costello Show that Jerry Seinfeld calls the inspiration for his own hit series!

This remarkable 5-disc collection contains all 26 episodes of the second - and final - season (1953-1954), complete and unedited, digitally remastered, looking and sounding better than ever.

PLUS: Never-before-seen home movies of Lou Costello and his family from the 1940s and '50s - many in full color with sound! (Even Bud manages to make a few "guest appearances.") To round things out, Lou's daughters, Paddy and Chris, share warm and wonderful anecdotes about their father in exclusive interviews. A treasure for Abbott & Costello fans everywhere!
