Episode Summary

EDIT
Don's 27th Anniversary With Jack
AIRED:
Don Wilson is saluted on his 27th anniversary of working with Jack. Benny gives him a cape, a crown, and a throne, which collapses under Don's weight. The Sportsmen sing "Down Yonder".
In flashbacks, Jack shows how the two met: Jack's radio sponsor, the Universal Corset Co., holds auditions for an announcer for Jack's program. Don is awful--he's only there to complain about a corset he bought--but he's the only one who laughs at Jack's stale jokes.
Jack sends Don to elocution lessons and a dance where he becomes a ballerina.
John Daly presents Don with a plaque for his achievements in broadcasting and congratulates him on saving the Benny show when it was "down". Don agrees the show was a flop without him. An insulted Jack breaks the plaque over Don's head.moreless
