Burn And Allen is my favorite

I love George Burns and Gracie Allen. I think because how smart it is, even though the jokes are about how dumb they can be. They can flip a sentence on it's head, taking an entirely different meaning, and then taking it over the top. Gracie does it constantly, purposely misinterpreting George, or, even as the straight-man, George misinterpreting Gracie. You can miss a flurry of jokes if you're not paying attention. They were two of the smartest people in comedy. I'd hate to see them forgotten.
