Geocache Description:

William "Bud" Abbott and Lou Costello performed together as Abbott and Costello, an American comedy duo whose work on stage, radio, film and television made them the most popular comedy team during the 1940s and 1950s. Their patter routine "Who's on First?" set the framework for many of their best-known comedy bits. Beginning in 1952, a filmed half hour series, The Abbott and Costello Show, appeared in syndication on local stations across the country. Loosely based on their radio series.
