The 39 half-hour episodes of the situation comedy "Meet Corliss Archer" were local broadcast syndication programming in 1954-55. Each DVD set contains four of the episodes.

This was the second television adaptation of a 1943-1955 radio series of the same title that was based on F. Hugh Herbert's play "Kiss and Tell". The first adaptation ran as a live broadcast in 1951.

The title character (played by Ann Baker) was an early Gidget who is experiencing her teenage years in the days before sex, drugs, and rock & roll. Bobby Ellis plays boyfriend Dexter Franklin and is the only cast member retained from the earlier production. The writing is better than you would expect and Ann Baker has a lot of effortless charm.

The series is a narrated by Hy Averback who would go on to produce "F-Troop". What is notable is that the narration is often in the form of a voice-over commentary for a cartoon version of a character, and the situation they are experiencing in the story; 50 years later this technique would become a staple of Disney's "Lizzie McGuire" (2001) series.

Then again, what do I know? I'm only a child.
