In the Corner with Dan Hughes


Sep 26, 2011

Sad Sack is chiefly remembered as the star of a comic book, but he was also the star of a 1957 movie (he was played by Jerry Lewis!) and a 1946 summer replacement radio series (in Frank Sinatra's time slot).

On the radio, Herb Vigran played the Sad Sack and Jim Backus was his roommate (in the radio series, Sad Sack was a veteran, World War II being over by the time the series was on the air).

This is the first episode of the series, Sad Sack Returns Home From the Army, from June 12, 1946.
