Did You Know?
This half hour sitcom debuted on CBS on 22 November 1953 and lasted three seasons (last telecast on 5 July 1955). Based on the novel and hit movie starring William Powell
, it focused on the lives of the Day family in 1880s New York. Viewers had trouble keeping track of the numerous cast changes with the children (one son, Whitney, was played by three different actors). Despite being seen in black and white by most viewers, this live series was actually broadcast in color beginning in September 1954, the first such show produced in Hollywood. See more
