Summary
"Television's original genius. In the infancy of any medium, there will be someone who realize its potential well before anyone else. Ernie Kovacs was such a visionary, and between 1951 and 1962 he broke rules that hadn't even been made yet, creating a television "language" that is now taken for granted. ... over 13 hours of programs that span the all-too-brief but brilliant television career of this hugely influential comic artist."--Container
