: :I got hooked on Jack Benny when I was about 12 or 13. I heard the Fred Allen show of May 26, 1946 and laughed myself silly as Jack (aka Myron Proudfoot) became "King for a Day" and lost his pants! perhaps someone can tell me if he really did lose his pants on that show? From the sound of the audience... I think he did
Yes, Jack Benny really did lose his pants and on one leg of his boxers was the word 'lucky' and on the other leg was the word 'strike' ;)
