Fibber McGee and Molly was the finest husband and wife comedy team. It ran on the radio from 1935 to 1959 then switched to television in 1959. Its running gags and characters inspired many imitators.

Stars: Bob Sweeney, Cathy Lewis, Pat McGeehan

Storyline

In this joke-filled spinoff of the Fibber McGee and Molly radio show, the couple leave Wistful Vista for Washington D.C. to visit cousin Alvin; neighborhood gossip magnifies the trip into a mission to advise the government. Once there, Fibber innocently starts things, including a big ruckus in the Senate. Will he be famous or infamous? Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

Relevant Then & Now
8 November 2006 | by (RI/United States) – See all my reviews

I watched this little comedy on the eve of the 2006 Congressional election. I got strange feelings as I realized how so many of the scenes were relevant then and were relevant as I watched it. Watch Molly (Marian Jordan) in close up with her eyes ready to shed tears as she sits on the train with World War II troops. A truly great acting moment, something about her expression that made me want to tear up as well as I thought about troops fighting for us now. It a little silly, a little funny, and extremely revealing for those who are trying to understand how civilian Americans coped with the reality all around them at the height of World War II. And isn't it always fun whenever Fibber McGee opens up that closet?
