Thanks to Abbott & Costello's films and television show we have these hilarious verbal wordplays preserved. Some of them trace their origin back to vaudeville where various comedy teams performed these routines just as Bud & Lou also did on the stage.

But not all of those teams are remembered and never made the successful transition from vaudeville to the silver screen or TV as Bud & Lou were able to do.
