The Spike Jones Show - 3-DVD Best Of Collection Coming from Infinity Entertainment

Late November release includes 2 never-before-seen pilot episodes

Posted by David Lambert
    Dubbed the "Master of Musical Mayhem" by Rolling Stone, comedic bandleader Spike Jones and the City Slickers were hugely popular in the '40s, '50s and '60s, known for wacky skits and zany renditions of the day's most popular songs. An accomplished musician, Spike was a true innovator - whose comedic madness was light years ahead of his time - directly influencing such iconoclasts as Frank Zappa, Ernie Kovacs, "Weird Al" Yankovic, Stan Freberg and George Carlin.

    From 1954-61, Spike came into living rooms across the nation with The Spike Jones Show (NBC & CBS). His special brand of music featured hilarious arrangements punctuated by sneezes, hiccups, snores, belches, gunshots, explosions, whistles, bird calls, cowbells, foghorns...and anything else laying around at the time! Now experience this classic television on DVD for the first time - digitally remastered and featuring Spike's biggest hits (over 60 melodies!) and most hilarious bits - in a special-edition, three-disc collector's set, produced and edited under the personal supervision of Spike Jones, Jr.
Infinity Entertainment Group has struck a deal with Spike Jones Entertainment to release The Spike Jones Show - The Best Of, a 3-DVD set that will be available starting on November 24th. In addition to the featured episodes from the 1954 series, the set will also include 2 never-before-aired pilots, which marked the band's television debut. Cost is $29.98 SRP. Here's a look at the front box cover:
