The episode runs long. In the glee club sketch, as Rudy Vallee begins singing, Berle yells, "Cut! We haven't the time." He has Rudy take a bow and the Texaco men come marching on to sing the close. Berle and Vallee stand behind them and sing off-key.
A smart-mouthed kid takes of for vacationing pitchman Sid Stone in the Texaco mid-show spot.
Another embarrassing "Live TV" moment: As Lewis wraps up "When My Baby Smiles at Me", he says his trademark line: "Yes sir! Is everybody happy?" He then tilts forward for his top hat to roll off his head and down his arm. The hat catches the back of his toupee, flipping it down onto his forehead.
The show came up five minutes short, forcing Berle to pad out the hour killing time.
