You Bet Your Life was originally broadcast on radio beginning in 1947, initially moving to television in 1950 as a radio show with cameras.

'You Bet Your Life' was almost cancelled before it began - the original sponsor DeSoto thought Groucho would do the show in his familiar black frock coat and painted-on mustache. When he refused, the sponsors tried to pull the plug. Since there was no clause in his contract requiring him to wear a costume, Groucho got his way.
