* Do Any Of You Guys Remember These Guys?
You guys remember Mike The Cop and Mr. Fields?
I loved their tv show.
Who’s On First?
I loved their tv show and movies.
They were really funny.
Jerry Seinfeld is an avid Abbott and Costello fan and their influence on him was celebrated in a 1994 NBC special, Abbott and Costello Meet Jerry Seinfeld. Seinfeld’s TV series includes numerous references to the team. George Costanza’s middle name is “Louis,” after Costello. “The Old Man (Seinfeld)” (Season 4, Episode 18, aired February 18, 1993) featured a cantankerous old man named “Sid Fields,” played by veteran actor Bill Erwin, as a tribute to the landlord on the Abbott and Costello TV show. A friend of Kramer’s is named Mickey Abbott. A copywriter for the J. Peterman catalog is named Eddie Sherman, after the team’s longtime agent. In Episode 30, Kramer hears the famous Abbott and Costello line, “His father was a mudder. His mother was a mudder.
The greatest comedy duo in the history of tv and movies. Martin & Lewis were also great but not in the league of Abbott & Costello. Laurel & hardy were also great but still not in Abbott & Costello’s league.
I love these guys. Many happy memories were made while watching their movies and especially their tv show.
My name is Jeff. I was born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. Since 1991, I have lived in South Florida and have eaten in so many restaurants down here, that I now consider myself to be a food expert.
