The Stingiest Man In Town - DVD

Has anyone noticed that early on in the song 'Humbug' the audio seems to break up and it sounds as if a brief part of the LP recording has been inserted to correct it? My guess is that the mikes on the set didn't pick up Basil Rathbone's clearly (as often happened in these 'live' TV recordings) due to him turning his head. A reminder of those early 'talkies' when the mike was hidden on the set in a bowl of flowers and the actors had to stand near it to be heard!
