+ Eb and Zeb 1932 - 1933 A "Lum and Abner" type comedy about two old codgers who run a General Store in Corn Center. Eb speaks with an annoying whistle through his teeth. Eb and Zeb was produced out of a San Francisco studio with Al Pearce playing Eb who talked with a lisp, and Bill Wright was the voice of Zeb. The show was sponsored by the Shell Oil Company. The characters were shopkeepers of a General Store in the the little town of Corn Center. Often the plot would continue into several episodes of a story, while at other times old Eb and Zeb would just amuse the audience carrying on and joking in the vaudeville style.
