Sketches written for the show by Freberg and producer Peter Barnum included:
* "Incident at Los Voraces": A tale of a town destroyed by escalating competition between two casinos.
* "The Zazaloph Family": The greatest stunt troupe radio audiences can never see.
* "Uninterrupted Melody": A good and humorous look at the lives of the men who compose ice cream truck jingles. Based on a piece Freberg wrote for ''Magazine/{{MAD}}''.
* "Gray Flannel Hat Full of Teenage Werewolves": A werewolf lives by day as an advertising man on Madison Avenue.
* "Bang Gunleigh, U.S. Marshal Field": A parody of radio westerns like Series/{{Gunsmoke}} & Tales Of The Texas Rangers.
* "The Lone Analyst": A satirical parody of ''TheLoneRanger'' and the power of psychoanalysis.
* "Sam Spillade": FilmNoir with no plot, just a private eye getting knocked unconscious every two minutes.

The show also recreated many parodies from Freberg's classic comedy records ("St. George and the Dragonet," "Wun'erful, Wun'erful," "The Honeyearthers," "Day-O," "Sh-Boom"), and included musical interludes with Peggy Taylor, the Jud Conlon Rhythmaires, and Billy May and His Orchestra.



* AffectionateParody: So many of these, including the Lawrence Welk sketch ("Turn off-a the bubble machine...!"); "St. George and the Dragonet" parody of {{Dragnet}}; a film noir parody, which has a femme fatale and no plot, just a private eye getting knocked unconscious every two minutes; "Bang Gunley: US Marshal Field", parody of radio westerns like Series/{{Gunsmoke}} & Tales Of The Texas Rangers; "The Lone Analyst", a satirical parody of ''TheLoneRanger'' and the power of psychoanalysis.
