Storyline

In a pattern that many domestic sitcoms would follow over the next 15 years, the plotlines followed the exploits of zany Mary Kay. Her husband, Johnny, was a sane, sensible banker who had to rescue her from herself. (The Stearns were married in real life.) In December, 1948, Mary Kay gave birth to son Christopher. Because Mary Kay's pregnancy was hard to hide, his birth was incorporated into the show. Shortly after New Year's Day, 1949, Christopher was written into the show as a character. During shooting, he either lay in his bassinet or was held by one of the Stearns or Mary Kay's mother. Shot live in New York, where it was set. Sponsored by Anacin. Written by Steven W. Siferd <72233.741@compuserve.com>

Trivia

First United States television sitcom to feature an on-screen pregnancy. As with I Love Lucy (1951), which came later, the writers decided to include it into the show after the lead actress, in this case Mary Kay Stearns, became pregnant in real life. See more »
