Originally introduced on the sitcom December Bride, the character of Pete Porter and his much talked-about (but never seen) wife Gladys were the doting parents of a baby girl named Linda. But when Pete and Gladys got their own series, the child disappeared and was never mentioned again. See more »
The thing I remember most about this show is that the character I loved so much from December Bride, Pete Porter (played hilariously by Harry Morgan), was not featured enough in the spin off. "Pete and Gladys" was almost all Gladys (played by a very funny Cara Williams.) Sadly, when Pete did appear, he wasn't the same wacky guy from December Bride. He seemed frustrated, serious, somewhat somber. It was disappointing since the point of the show was not only to reveal Gladys but to capitalize on Harry Morgan's wonderfully comic Pete. Not necessarily a bad situation comedy from the era but disappointing and a letdown to Pete fans.
