    The George Gobel Show DVD TV (1954)


    The George Gobel Show DVD TV (1954)

    2 Episodes One hour of lost footage

    In 1954 he got his own network TV show on NBC, a comedy show that showcased Gobel's quiet, homespun style of humor. Its centerpiece was a monologue that usually recounted humorous stories about things that had supposedly happened to him, as well as stories about his wife, "Spooky Old Alice" (played by actress Jean "Jeff" Donnell). Gobel's hesitant delivery and penchant for getting tangled in digressions were the chief sources of comedy, more important than the actual content of the stories he told. His monologues popularized several catch phrases, notably "Well then there now" (repeated by James Dean in Rebel Without a Cause) and "Well, I'll be a dirty bird."  Gobel described himself as "Lonesome George," and the nickname stuck for the rest of his career. The TV show typically included a segment in which Gobel appeared with a guitar, started to sing, then got sidetracked into a story, with the song always left unfinished after fitful starts and stops. He had a special version of the Gibson L-5 archtop guitar built, featuring diminished dimensions of neck scale and body depth, befitting his own small stature; a series of several dozen of this "L-5CT" or "George Gobel" model was produced in the late 1950s and early 1960s. He also played harmonica. In 1957 three B-52 Stratofortress bombers made the first nonstop round-the-world flight by turbojet aircraft. One of the aircraft was christened "Lonesome George." The crew appeared on George Gobel's prime-time television show and recounted their mission which took them 45 hours, and 19 minutes.
