Storyline

His sponsor walks out on Jack's show, when his sponsor's in town for contract renewal, so Jack's afraid to take him to a nightclub featuring a comic competitor. A puppet show seems a safe (and cheap) alternative, but filling in for the sore-throated puppeteer is golden throated Danny Thomas, whose charity and charm entrance the sponsor, but paralyze Jack.

Quotes

Jack Benny: Danny, it was just wonderful having you on the show, and I want to tell you, you are not only a fine artist and really a great comedian, but you are a great guy. You know, I understand that the check that I'm giving you for this show, that you are donating to charity.
Danny Thomas: Well - yes, Jack, I was going to donate it to charity, but then I changed my mind.
Jack Benny: Why?
Danny Thomas: Well, after I found out how much you're paying me, I was ashamed.
