The show was the first of numerous sitcoms for Betty White across the decades and was based on sketches involving the Elizabeth character that she had performed on her earlier talk show Hollywood on Television.

The low-budget comedy was produced by and filmed at a local Los Angeles TV station where White and Moore were on the staff (the series was originally a live production on KLAC-TV in 1951). Betty White received her first Primetime Emmy Award nomination for her work on this series.

Betty White is a pioneer of early TV Sitcoms!

    • That’s great Dee! I liked a Christmas episode where the father I think gets a job working in the Depatment Store and winds up giving the toys away! And the manager who gives him a hard time pays for the total amount as he gets into the Cristmas Spirit!
