Phil Silvers featured on Sunday Morning Almanac on 20 Sept 2015

Almanac noted of Phil Silvers, the King of Chutzpah:

Eventually renamed for its star, "The Phil Silvers Show" ran for just four years, but won EIGHT Emmys, including a Best Actor Award for Silvers in 1956.

Related to patent reformers talking about the "peanut butter and jelly sandwich" patent of Smuckers,
recall the episode of the Silvers show: "The Case of Private Harry Speakup", wherein a recruit's pet chimpanzee is sworn into the Army.

Of some IP interest, the last line of the last episode was -- "Th-th-that's all, folks!" --, which of course is the signature line of Porky Pig. Separately, CBS, which cancelled the show, immediately sold the rights to NBC, which benefitted greatly from the re-runs.

Of note to New Jersey, the "moment of nature" featured great blue herons in Veterans Park in
Hamilton Township, New Jersey.
