Known for his pomposity and his trademark giggle, Throckmorton P. Gildersleeve was a popular character on radio's Fibber McGee and Molly. In 1941 Gildersleeve landed his own situation comedy, The Great Gildersleeve, in which Gildersleeve oversaw his late brother-in-law's estate and took on the rearing of his orphaned niece and nephew. The Great Gildersleeve was the first show to center on a single parent balancing child rearing, work, and a social life, and it was accomplished with taste and genuine wit, often at the expense of Gildersleeve's slightly understated pomposity. Here are twelve episodes from 1947 and 1948 starring Harold Peary.
