These comedy routines are from their television show from the 1950's. I wasn't sure about this when I bought the DVD. I wasn't sure of the picture quality before I bought. Many of the old television shows from the 1950's can be muddy and unclear(being taken from Kinoscope), however, these are very clear and the quality is as good as their movie releases. I was suprised. The comedy routines are funny and can be an addition to your Abbott and Costello movie collection. I recommend this for Abbott and Costello fans and also something that your kids might get a kick out of.
