No one has ever lampooned popular music and culture like Spike Jones, and no one ever will; his mixture of inspired insanity, smart silliness and hot musical chops (courtesy of the City Slickers) made America laugh even during it's darkest hours. Now, straight from the Spike Jones family, comes a 3-DVD-plus-CD look at his one-of-a-kind career, with special emphasis on the havoc he wrought when let loose on the boob tube; inside are complete broadcasts of the February 11, 1951 and September 16, 1951 'Colgate Comedy Hour', featuring Spike with guests Gale Robbins, Helen Grayco (Mrs. Spike Jones) and Doodles Weaver, not to mention assorted hula dancers, cave men and sight gags galore. That's disc one; disc two features January 12, 1952 and June 7, 1952 broadcasts of 'All Star Revue', featuring Billy Eckstine, Jim Backus and a young Liberace (and did we mention the opening bug spray symphony?) Disc three includes a rare, 1968 interview with Spike and family, his appearance as Leonard Burnside on 'The Ed Sullivan Show' in 1961, interviews and commentary with City Slicker Joe Siracusa and wife Helen Grayco, and much more. And the bonus CD presents two totally unreleased radio sitcom pilots produced in 1945 for NBC! Along the way you'll hear and see such classics as 'Cocktails for Two; All I Want for Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth; Laura', and more. Produced by Spike Jones, Jr.!
