George Baxter was a highly successful corporation lawyer who was always in control of everything at the office, but almost nothing at home. When he returned from the office at day's end, to his wife Dorothy, and his young son Harold, he entered the world of Hazel. Hazel was the maid and housekeeper who ran the Baxter household more efficiently than George ran his office. She was always right, knew exactly what needed doing, and pre-empted his authority with alarming, though, justified regularity. Written by
During its first four seasons the series was sponsored by the Ford Motor Company, who apparently used their clout to put their cars on the show. The Baxters' family cars were always Fords. In the Spring of 1964, the show became one of the first to show its characters riding in a Ford Mustang, which had just been introduced to the market. See more »
I remember that Hazel was so wise. She kept resolving the the Baxter family's problems. I thought that it was really cool that Hazel wore a uniform. That is what I remember the most! As a child I used to have several paper dolls and I dressed them all up at different times of the day, depending on what I was wearing, I use to dress them like me! They all had all those outfits that I drew and designed myself! I had to wear a uniform to go school. I had to wear black shoes, dark blue pleaded shirt, white shirt with a small tie, and a navy sweater during the winter. All my dolls had the same uniform! While I was at school, they all had their uniforms on, like me. That was so creative! When I saw Hazel's uniform, I was enthralled. I suggested to my mother that our maids should wear uniforms. I wanted to dress them all like Hazel. She turned down my idea, because it was way too colonial. I used to dream about having our maids all dressed like Hazel, starched little hat and all. Do not ask me why, I just thought it was cool! That is pretty much all I remember, but I was way too young. But I remember the series fondly.
