The Ed Wynn Show (CBS)
1949 | CBS Television
To be called a fool is no compliment, but to be called “The Perfect Fool” is to be identified as one of America’s great humorists. With a lisping giggle, a pair of horn-rimmed spectacles, a befuddled look, and a funny hat, Ed Wynn became the king of jesters, whom we honor here today. Long a leader in the entertainment world, he has brought to television, newest of our media of amusement, the best of the techniques of stage, screen, and radio. He has combined his own personality, showmanship, and humor—all of a superior quality—with the talents of guest stars in such a way as to make The Ed Wynn Show entirely worthy of and the choice for the George Foster Peabody Television Award for outstanding entertainment.
