(4 out of 5 stars)
"In volume #4 of The Abbott & Costello Show where Bud and Lou are down and out actors who live at the Fields Rooming House located at 214 Brookline Avenue along with their beautiful neighbor Hillary Brooke and are always joined with their regular cast of charactors, Mike the cop, Mr. Bacciagalupe, Mr. Fields and Stinky (Joe Besser of The Three Stooges)find themselves again in more very funny situations.
(The Drugstore) starts the show with the boys on stage doing the Jonah and the whale routine and then begins showing them taking a job at Mr Fields brothers drugstore. Lou is driven crazy by kids and turns ill by Stinky and then starts a crazy ice cream fight. (Square Meal) The boys travel to Mr Bacciagalupe's lunch counter where Lou's allergy to meatballs turns the owner completly into a basketcase and then find themselves in a cafeteria where there is a case of mistaken identity with two waitresse. The oyster stew is pure classic! ($1000 Prize) is my personal favorite on this volume where Bud and Lou go to Mr Fields apartment to fix his tv set and wind up answering his phone when he's away and winning the big prize, but only if they can get rid of Mr Fields when the prize is delivered. They also have to contend with ducking Mike the cop! (Wife Wanted) begins with Bud and Mr Fields taking advantage of poor Lou in a poker game but Lou's fate has a turnaround for the better when he will inherit $10,000 if he can find a wife to marry before his rich grandfather visits. Lou's old girlfriend Agnes may be the answer, but what about her jealous wrestler boyfriend?Why 4 stars and not 5 stars? Because just like the Abbott & Costello fan club says... That's not even the best ones! It's great to see the Abbott & Costello Show going to DVD. I hope all (13) volumes will be released soon! Than maybe the cartoon series which features Bud Abbotts voice."
