Delta put out a "Christmas TV Episodes" disc a long time ago that had a Jack Benny Christmas episode on it.If that Christmas program is the one with Mel Blanc playing a flustered clerk, who's driven to suicide when Jack continually asks him to make changes to a gift Jack buys, then I'd advise anyone to pick it up. Very funny episode.
That show is also available from Shokus.com (Volume 4; on VHS or DVD).
"Oh why did the Governor have to give me that pardon!!??" -- Mel Blanc after several run-ins with Jack at counter.
Just found another "old-time TV" DVD, featuring some Jack Bennys.......That's the one I was referring to in my original post. It seems to only have one Benny episode, so I didn't buy it.
Thanks for all of the links -- I'll be checking them out later. And yes, I love Benny's old radio show. I have several dozen episodes of the radio show on tape, and perhaps a dozen more on CD. Also a large number of MP3s (I *think*, my drive is a mess!), although the quality on many of those is quite poor.

I've found that the poorest ones are the very early shows (1932-1935). This, of course, would seem to make sense.
The MP3 Bennys I have improve in quality once you get past mid-1936 (approximately).
Some of the ongoing, continuing gags are fun to listen to from show to show (like the guy in Jack's basement who's guarding the "bank vault" who hasn't seen daylight in decades! ).
