StanFreberg's short-lived (15 episodes) SketchComedy radio series from 1957, featuring the voices of Creator/DawsButler, Creator/JuneForay and Peter Leeds. Greatly influenced ''Creator/TheFiresignTheatre'' in their audio recordings.

Sketches written for the show by Freberg and producer Peter Barnum included:
* "Incident at Los Voraces": A tale of a city 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.

!!This show provides examples of:

* AccidentalDiscovery: Puffed Grass, the result of having lawn clippings falling into and getting shot out of a puffed oat gun.
* AliensSpeakingEnglish: Would be Stan speaking with Miss Jupiter if she didn't?
* AmusingAlien: Miss Jupiter. She's only two feet tall.
* BadBadActing: The "real-life" spokesperson for the Puffed Grass ParodyCommercial, a monotone, robotic-sounding test pilot named [[PunnyName Jet Crash]]:
--> "Believe you me, I couldn't break through the sound barrier every morning if I didn't start off my day with a stomach.... ''[[{{Beat}} (long pause)]]'' ....full of Puffed Grass."
* BigfootSasquatchAndYeti: The abominable snowman interviews.
* BizarreAlienBiology: Miss Jupiter has "shapely wheels".
* ClipShow: The fifteenth--and final--episode of ''The Stan Freberg Show'' is essentially comprised of skits and characters from the previous fourteen.
* CrushingHandshake: In the interview between Stan Freberg and the Abominable Snowman, the latter gives the former a very painful-sounding handshake:
-->'''Stan''': Would you mind squeezing my hand the other way to get it back in shape?
* DatedHistory: History is [[{{Deconstruction}} deconstructed]] humorously in the "Great Moments in History" sketches with "the real stories" behind those moments, including Washington crossing the Delaware and the midnight ride of Paul Revere.
* DoomItYourself:
** The build-it-yourself piano.
** Dr. Hubert Horne on building a do-it-yourself hi-fi speaker system.
--> '''Stan:''' It [...] concludes Dr. Horne, who'll say nothing of Strudelmeyer.
* FullNameBasis: When out of character, Stan frequently addresses Daws as "Daws Butler, as they say on radio".
* {{Irony}}: "Bang Gunleigh" is advertised as an action-packed western. [[spoiler:This episode features nothing more than Bang and a fellow cowboy investigating a damaged fence.]]
* NoReprisePlease: In the Music/LawrenceWelk sketch, the song "Thank You For All Those Cards and Letters..."
* OncePerEpisode: The opening song:
--> This is the ''n''th show of a series,\\
of a brand new radio series...
* ParodyCommercial: "Puffed Grass" ("Bang Gunleigh, U.S. Marshal Field"); [[BrandNameTakeover "Food"]] ("Gray Flannel Hat Full of Teenage Werewolves"); [[ShamelessSelfPromoter "Stan Freberg"]] (the second-to-last episode).
* PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad:
** Anyone who isn't of American lineage is labelled as Swiss. That way, nobody gets offended.
** This gets taken to a rather ludicrous extreme when Stan starts singing a rendition of "Old Man River" in front of a censor. However, seeing that "old" is a potentially offensive adjective, the title is immediately changed to "Elderly Man River". How far Stan go to adapt to the censor's standards?
*** Stan changes words on the fly:
---> '''Stan:''' He doesn't plant taters... potatoes.\\
He doesn't plant cotton... cotting.\\
And he, who, them, those that plants them are soon [[RhymesOnADime forgotting]]...
*** Later on, even Stan's ''grammar'' is criticized.
---> '''Stan:''' You and me... ''[[RunningGag (buzzer)]]''\\
You and I sweat ''[[OverlyLongGag (buzzer)]]'' perspire and strain...\\
Bodies all aching and racked with pain...
* PunnyName: Jet Crash, Bang Gunleigh, among others.
* RhymesOnADime: How Stan rewords "Old Man River" in order to appease the radio network censor.
* RunningGag:
** In several "Great Moments in History" segments, some historical figure like Barbara Frichie or Paul Revere would say "First give me the money, ''then'' I'll _____ (get on the horse, stand on the burning deck, etc.)"
** Also the nonsensical soundscapes that began a number of episodes.
** "No, señorita. Swiss. This way we don't offend nobody."
** The buzzer from "Elderly Man River".
* SayMyName: A SoapWithinAShow parody.
-->"John..."
-->"Marsha..."
* ShamelessSelfPromoter: Freberg did an entire episode near the end (when the show itself failed to attract a sponsor) about advertising himself.
* SketchComedy
* SoapWithinAShow: The "John & Marsha" routine, which invokes SayMyName and an inversion of PokemonSpeak.
* TranslationYes: Mousier Touler (and his Tuned Sheep) has a couple of "French" phrases, just a few syllables long, that are translated in English as long run-on sentences.
