Ted Lewis - Is Everybody Happy?

Taken from the Abbott and Costello classic movie, "Hold That Ghost", are these two musical segments featuring Ted Lewis and his Orchestra as well as The Andrew Sisters. Ted Lewis, perhaps best known for his top hat and the phrase, "Is Everybody Happy?", was born in Circleville, Ohio. There is now a park there in his honor as well as a musuem in downtown Circleville, which is also the home of the annual, world famous, Pumpkin Show.

If you are in southern Ohio be sure to check out the Ted Lewis Museum which has on display memorabilia of the legendary jazz musician, Ted Lewis. The museum features the Ted Lewis Theater which provides guests with an opportunity to see Ted Lewis in performance by means of tapes from his movies and TV appearances. The museum is open 1-5 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. Group tours are available by appointment. Call(740) 474-3231 or (740) 474-3834 for details. The Ted Lewis Museum is located at 133 West Main Street, P.O. Box 492, Circleville, Ohio.
