  1. It seems odd that The Milton Berle Show is considered a lesser known TV show. The Texaco Star Theater / The Milton Berle Show ended before I was born, and I’ve never seen an episode of it, but I know that it was a big deal in the late 1940s to 1950s. It’s likely that most people younger than me have no interest in early television series, so I suppose I’m showing my age by knowing about it! Thank you for providing the link for the auction items. I saw some really nice memorabilia, but current bids are way above my price range.
