This was certainly the most popular show for the week it first aired. You will hear one joke in this show which is a reference to General Douglas MacArthur's famous speech of April 19, 1951, which ended with the phrase, "Old soldiers never die. They just fade away." I won't spoil it for you but when you hear the line you will understand the reference.
Here is "Uncle Miltie" having fun with Danny Thomas. The jokes are from Vaudeville and circus routines and just whatever they made up on the spot.
The sets were very low budget. My favorite set here is the exterior of Milton Berle's mansion.
