This The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show (1950) spin-off found George Burns relocated to his downtown office working as a producer and trying to deal with an assortment of entertainers and oddball theatrical acts, as well as his previously established friends.

Gracie Allen was frequently seen in the kitchen preparing meals, and she endorsed a vast array of baking products. In real-life, Gracie didn't cook. Meals were either made by the family's chef, or they ate out. See more »
Well, you see one Christmas my father caught a wild turkey and he fed him corn and chestnuts. But then we didn't have the heart to kill him so we let him get away.
Oh, I see.
But the turkey liked the food so well that he came back each year. And that way we always had...
A turkey for Christmas dinner?

When the show transitioned from live broadcasts to film in the third season, George Burns found himself footing the bill and decided to drop the "Love Nest" theme which had been utilized in both the original radio series and the first two seasons of the show to avoid paying royalties. During the third season a stock music "theme" from the Mutel music library was utilized; for the fourth season Alexander Laszlo's "Two-a-Day" was used. "Love Nest" returned in the fifth season and replaced the other two themes for syndicated reruns. See more »
I love to watch the Burns and Allen show as it is one to the unique shows that we had. Gracie and George were the perfect couple. You had to laugh as she took things so to there meaning and it worked perfect. I sometimes watch the 70's show and in a way Red and Kitty almost seem to be them in another era but still not exactly the same. I just find that their looks like Kitty's hair and Red even has a similar look like George. Back to George and Gracie now. I would love to have all their shows, especially the ones with that TV that could George could see what was going on in the show. That is something that really was to cool. I hope to see them release all their shows as I have only a few and wish that all were on DVD. One more thing I feel that if the show was aired more often and some people would show it to their children, it could bring a new light. I know this as when I show it on DVD to my kids they are older like 17 and up really start to get into it after a few shows. Hurry for Burns and Allen, and also their neighbors too.
