Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Originally broadcast on American television between 1952 and 1969, the thirty situation comedies detailed in this work are seldom seen today, receiving only brief and often incomplete and inaccurate mentions in most reference sources. Yet these sitcoms (including ""Angel"", ""The Governor and J.J."", ""It's a Great Life"", ""I'm Dickens...He's Fenster"" and ""Wendy and Me"",) and the stories of the talented people who made them, represent an integral part of TV history. Each of the thirty entries has been extensively researched, including screenings of multiple episodes. Containing a complete list of production credits and rare publicity stills, this volume not only corrects errors and omissions in other sources, but also expands our understanding and appreciation of these neglected sitcoms.
