okay, You owe general program brought to you by yellow and yellow, putting tiring Jack, many with Mary lyrics until hair is devastated. Your truly God will the orchestra. But the program with the way a convenient way to buy Jello, ladies and gentlemen, is to get several packages of the time and use them as you want them. And with the new Jello, you can do this without any fear that your supply of jello will lose Flavor and freshness is it stands on the pantry shelf. You can now buy a dozen packages of Jell 01 time. I know that they will all stay at the peak of their goodness until you want. Because today, Jell O's flavor is locked in locked into the yellow particles by an exclusive jello process. Tiny gela particles deliver their full strength flavor to you intact. Now prove it for yourself. Open a package of Jell O. Notice that there's no telltale aroma, no sign of escaping fragrance and flavor. But the instant you dissolve the Jell O, you unlock its captive flavor, and I want it pours in all its original richness. Tomorrow, when you water gel a lot of several packages. Get all of Telus six delicious flavors and always have a full of soften on hand from which to you can keep Jello as long as you please. The flavor doesn't go away. We put it in and it's there to stay. That game ran Karol, played by the orchestra. And now, ladies and gentlemen, it is my very great honor to bring you a man who, last Sunday on this program, gave you what was undoubtedly the finest performance of his acting career. That's right, Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. So, without further ado, I give you the only actor in America who can make Jekyll and Hyde sound like Brenda and Co Bina. Yeah, Jack, Benny talking and Don, that may be your idea of a funny introduction, but to ridicule my performance of last Sunday, which everyone hailed as a dramatic nugget that really burns me up. Take it easy, Jack. I thought you played the part well enough, but I happen to see the picture. And I didn't think you were as good as Spencer. Tracy. Oh, you didn't know? Well done. Let me ask you something. Who signs your check every week, Spencer Tracy or the Benny Goose that lays the golden egg. Take that as my fault for the day. But, Jack, you don't seem to understand. Now. When Spencer Tracy plays the part, there was a decided difference between both characters. But when you did it, I couldn't tell your jackal from your high. You can tell your stomach from an eagle what you know about it? A fine pal. You turn out to be not John. And don't call me Jack, But now I won't leave. Address me as Mr Beni and I'll call you Mr Wilton. That clear? I think you're being very childish about the whole matter. Absolutely. Child. Don't try to bring my age down. Flattery won't help. Remember that, Mr Wilson. Mr. Wilson? Who's Mr Wilton? That hulk over yonder. Listen, Mary, you witness my performance last week. What did you think of it? Well, pushed me. I thought you were very good in Georgie Jessel. I wasn't so I was Jenko. Doctor Jekyll's well, in that case, boy Boy, What do you mean? I don't get it. All right. Take the word lovely and fool around with lovely lively. Wow, Benny, let me remind you Mr Wilson of something that you both may have for gotten when I switched from Dr Jekyll to that horrible Mr Hyde. And that gruesome look came over my face. Women in the audience screams. One of them even faded. Well, I won't happen today. They popped that mind. Well, then I guess I can take these bicycle clips off my pants. However, as long human don in such a critical mood, I'd like to point out that Christmas is only 18 days away. Why did you come in mad at everybody? All right, keep it up. Keep it up. You know, I already bought your Christmas present, young lady. But I'm a exchange it for something cheaper. Something keeper? Yeah, they don't dig a bargain. Dayton that deep? Well, you work more than I did. Ah, I go along with you. Do that one more month. Livingston. There will be a Oh, hello, Donna. Almost of any G with that performance you gave last week. Common weal. Thank Senate. I'm glad you liked it. Not only me, my whole family thought you were wonderful. That's nice. I'm glad someone appreciated me. Listen, Jacque, the trouble with you is the minute. You do something halfway good. It goes, like in your hand. Mr. Benny was wonderful. Quiet to hear you talk back. Anyone would think you were the biggest ham in Hollywood. Oh, I'd like to see a bigger one, by golly thing. Well, thanks, Dennis. You try anyway. You thought I was good. Marvelous. What? Forman, I love kids. I'm making not my Christmas list today. So before singing your song, how about throwing out a few hints? What would you like, Uncle Jack to get you? Well, I thought of a few things, but they're pretty inventive. Just name your one person in the cat to deserve the best way to get my pencil here. Now, what do you want then? It Well, I'd like to have a nice, great suit with pinstripes. Okay. One gray to with pin, right? Anything else? Well, I'd love to have a grand piano to practice my songs on. Okay. One brand. Are you sure you got leading that pencil? Mr Beni? Yes, Yes. What else you want, Dennis? Well, I've always wanted one of those toys Birds on a stick when you're swinging around your head. Okay. One bird on now what else you want? Stop with your just trying to make Donna me jealous. Dennis isn't going to get all that stuff. Getting something you want. He I wonder what it is. I'll give you a hint, kid. Fried for heaven. Faith. Now go ahead with your song, Dennis. Okay, hold it a minute. Come in, Benny. Yeah. I want to congratulate you on your performances, Mr Hyde. Last week I was so frightened my hair stood on End your hair. One hair right there. Stand up, German here. Well, I suppose if you only got one here, you might have a name for things. Way, you way, way you way. Ramble loathe. I know, Ladies and gentlemen, lay a special announcement. The entire regular personnel of the sheriffs and police officer has been placed on a two platoon basis with 12 hour shift. All auxiliary personnel has been directed to stand by for emergency service instructions. The regular county defense program. This functioning in an orderly manner. And citizens are urged to remain calm and avoid all unnecessary confusion. Because of hysteria, citizen volunteers are asked to go quietly to their nearest police or fire stations and offer their services If they wish to help. There is no immediate cause for alarm. And coolness will accomplish more than anything else. That was a medley of everything I love and all the things you are sung by Dentist Aid. Very good dentist. Or what? The idea of singing two songs today. Well, Mr Benny, I've got two girls, and I thought I dedicated number to each of them to girls. That's modern youth for you. You know, Dennis, when I was your age, I was satisfied with only one girl. Guthy Bagel. Quit. Ah! Ah! He was a dream. That's a girl. You because you cut you with Buster Keaton. I never sued her. I just told her to get a brace up. Anyway, I was talking to Dennis. Whatever happened to your girl, Mr Benny? Dusty? All I went into bought herbal and she went away to veterinary college Way Thought drifted apart. One of the biggest horse doctors in Northern Illinois doing very well to do you keep in touch with their Mr Benny. Do you have a right tour? Oh, once in a while, when he has a cold or something.

You told everybody at your table and I was very bad on Jekyll and Hyde. How do you know? Because I've got a waiter there. That five for me. Naturally. You couldn't tip a waiter. Get there waiting on you, Marry. That's a little arrangement between Andre and me. Yeah, I could. A nomad waiter with by his much fell in my wearing a false mustache. I told him not to overdo it. Anyway, Phil, you did run down my performance. Yeah, but I changed my mind about that. You know, I met one of the greatest dramatic actors in this time last night, and he said you were great. I thought you were terrific washing Well know somebody. Well, ma'am, that little if I don't get Glenn Miller in my stocking Christmas morning, I level write another letter to Santa. And is it at me?
