Jack Benny was a regular on his own radio program since 1932. He brought the program, with his underplayed humor, to television along with his radio regulars. Jack, who remained thirty-nine-years-old, kept his money in his basement and drove his old Maxwell car just as he had done on the radio.

What about the difference in our ages?
Oh, it's not that big a difference. You're twenty-five and I'm thirty-nine.
I know, Jack. But what about twenty-five years from now when I'm fifty and you're thirty-nine?
Gee, I never thought of that.
