  • Episode Description
  • Benny brings out his guest Jack Webb during the monologue. Jack demands to know why they paid Webb $5000 since he doesn't sing, dance, or play a musical instrument; he's not even a real cop! Jack calls him a crook! Don does the Lux commercial as Confucius. Benny claims Dragnet is just like a Charlie Chan movie, leading to the sketch Dragon-net. Jack plays Charlie, who works in a laundry, and Webb is Number One son. It features a take-off of Edd "Kookie" Burns from 77 Sunset Strip as well as jokes about many of the other detective shows on the air. George Gobel makes a cameo to plug his series which aired on alternate weeks with the Benny program.moreless

    • Eleanor Biggers Cole, the widow of Charlie Chan creator Earl Derr Cole, filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against Jack Benny in October of 1960. She claimed the Dragon-net sketch used the Chan characters without permission. Cole sought an accounting of profits and damages, and asked that the defendants be restrained from future use of Chan without the proper authority.
