Jack Benny - December 5, 1954 - Christmas Shopping

Jack goes Christmas shopping, where Mel Blanc's tormented salesman has transferred to the Art Supplies dept. this year in hopes of avoiding him. Frank Nelson appears as the floorwalker, of course, and Sheldon Leonard appears again as the racetrack tout.

The Christmas shopping shows were well-established at this point, and the writers seemed to delight in finding new ways for Benny to torment Blanc's salesman each year. This would be the last Christmas shopping episode on radio, but the routine continued on television.
