The comedy situations, starring Groucho Marx, took place in the mythical American community of Blue Ribbon Town where men were men, women were women, and the jokes were mainly puns. Other regulars were Virginia O'Brien, Leo Gorcey and Fay McKenzie. The vocalists were Kenny Baker (who took over as host after Marx left in June 1944), Bill Days and Donald Dickson. Dick Joy was the announcer.
Small Business Times editor Steve Jagler wrote about the program's visit to Milwaukee in 1944:
The show was written, directed and produced by Dick Mack. Robert Armbruster supplied the music.
