One of the greatest things about the Roku/Netflix/Amazon setup ...

... is the instant availability of great old TV shows, by season and in sequence.  One of the treasures I discovered was the first season of the George Burns & Gracie Allen show.  George would intro and outro the show in front of the curtain, before a presumably live audience, and inbetween the episode would unfold, always with sly breaks in the fourth wall by Burns.

These videos have nothing to do with the show but are shown here to help you remember (or become introduced to) the genius of George Burns.

Never underestimate the power and capability of a tiny, 100 year old Jew (although he was "only" 84 when these videos were recorded)!
