If you really enjoy watching vintage TV Sit-Coms that go all the way back to that medium's "golden years" - Then - "The George Burns & Gracie Allen Show" should be a truly delightful treat for you.

Presented by "Carnation Condensed Milk" (from "contented" cows) - This old-time TV program certainly contains some genuinely priceless moments of absolutely uproarious comedy.

With the cigar-puffing, George Burns playing the straight man against Gracie Allen's hilarious clueless-flake shtick - The excellent rapport that took place between these two seasoned actors has got to be seen to be believed. (*Watch classic video-clip*)

Filmed in b&w - This 5-disc set contains 8, half-hour episodes, spanning from the years between 1950-1958. As an added bonus - There's a 50-minute "Hollywood Couples" documentary included, too.

*Note* Gracie Allen lived to be 70 years old. George Burns lived to be 100.
