"The great success of Abbott and Costello was attributed by the critics to their old-fashioned knock-about style, combined with a modern toughness of talk. Abbott was the lean and hawk-eyed wise guy, the sharp-shooter who always got the last word; Costello the good-natured dimwit who always got it in the neck--except when the worm occasionally turned. The average viewer never analyzed them--he just laughed." --From his March 4, 1959 The New York Times obituary.

A gold record of Abbott and Costello's "Who's On First?" routine is displayed at The Baseball Hall of Fame.
