Beginning in 1952, the filmed half-hour series "The Abbott and Costello Show" appeared in syndication on local stations across the country.

Other fan-favorites/recurring characters included the elegant Hillary Brooke, the belligerent Mike "The Cop" Kelly (Gordon Jones), the malevolent and child-like Oswald "Stinky" Davis (Joe Besser) and the ever-gainfully employed immigrant entrepreneur Mr. Bacciagalupe (Joe Kirk). Extras: "Hey Abbott!" 1978 TV retrospective, hosted by Milton Berle and featuring contributions by Steve Allen, Joe Besser and Phil Silvers; an "Abbott and Costello Show" Season One classic routines reel; rare home movies from the Lou Costello family archive (1942-1953); the restored 1948 short film "10,000 Kids and a Cop" (documenting the philanthropic work of the Lou Costello Jr. Youth Foundation); and interviews with daughters Chris and Paddy Costello. The book includes background essays by Abbott and Costello historian/expert Ron Palumbo, an introduction by Costello's daughters Chris and Paddy Costello and archival documents and photos, as well as a complete episode guide. Also supplementing the package is a set of four exclusive black & white photo postcards taken from the original publicity photography for the series. (E1 Entertainment).
