* TheAlcoholic: Phil Harris. Oy, the drunk jokes they did with Phil and his band flowed like wine. Lampshaded, even, when Phil's replacement, Bob Crosby, complained to Jack about how the writers kept trying to saddle him with drunk jokes. Eventually the writers settled on using the surplus drunk jokes on the band members, mainly Frankie Remley, Charlie Bagby, and "Sammy The Drummer" (real name: Sammy Weiss) that were also with Phil Harris. Bob Crosby's role became that of somewhat of a straight man to the gaggle of reprobates in the orchestra.

* EnforcedPlug

* EnforcedPlugEnforcedPlug - Played with. The agreement was that the sponsor would get the first and last spot but that Jack would control the middle spot. They had everything like Don reading the commercial in a funny voice or they would lampshade how heavy handedly they'd work it into a sketch. Eventually, the Sportsman Quartet was used to irk Jack with their unconventional lyrics
