Quote from: Ballad of Ballard Berkley on May 13, 2022, 01:27:36 PMAbbott & Costello's films were on TV a lot in the '80s and early '90s. They were regulars in BBC Two's 6pm classic comedy slot (alongside the likes of Laurel & Hardy, Jerry Lewis, Norman Wisdom and Will Hay). Also, Channel 4 aired The Abbott & Costello Show in a similar early evening slot. The Paramount Comedy Channel showed it in the mid-'90s too, albeit in a late-night slot (which made it feel more special). Thanks to those broadcasts, I built up quite a collection of their stuff on VHS!

Quote from: Ballad of Ballard Berkley on May 13, 2022, 07:02:05 PMCan't remember which episode of Seinfeld this occurs in, but there's a nice, knowing moment where an exasperated Jerry says to George, "What is this, an Abbott and Costello routine?!"
