Milton's guests for the season premiere include Duke Ellington, actress June Havoc, Phil Silvers, Howdy Doody, "Buffalo Bob" Smith, and Robert Keeshan (as Clarabell the Clown), comic actor Bert "The Mad Russian" Gordon, and the Stewart Morgan Dancers.
Berle opens the show in front of a huge banner that reads "Welcome Back, Mr. Television!" Silvers reprises his face-slapping singing lesson with Berle. Ellington performs "Sophisticated Lady" at the piano in a medley of his hits. Havoc sings and clowns around with Berle as a Kentucky colonel. In a take-off of The Howdy Doody Show, Berle and guests harass Buffalo Bob as members of the peanut gallery.
