Description
 
The Fibber McGee and Molly Show
The 1943/1944 Season
 
 
One true testament to the strength and popularity of a show is when another idea spins out of it and proves successful. With that as evidence, Fibber McGee and Molly was definitely a strong and popular show. A full season of the program is collected in The Fibber McGee and Molly Show, The 1943/1944 Season.
 
Literally overflowing with memorable characters, Fibber McGee and Molly boasts not one, but two successful spin offs during its run. Harold Peary, one of the Chicago performers who joined the show after the move to NBC, played McGee’s neighbor and often arch nemesis, Throckmorton P. Gildersleeve. The blustery, flustered way that Peary played ‘Gildy’ proved so popular that actor and character both ended up headlining a new show - The Great Gildersleeve. According to John Dunning, this was the first series to prove to be a hit to spin out of another show, not to mention into movies and television.
 
The second character born on Fibber McGee and Molly only to go on to her own program was the McGee’s maid, Beulah. Debuting in 1944, Beulah proved a big hit, even though she was actually portrayed by a man named Marlin Hurt. Hurt’s performance as the jovial, humorous woman won fans over and Beulah went on to have her own show and even a television program!
 
Enjoy an entire season restored to sparkling audio quality in The Fibber McGee & Molly Show, The 1943/1944 Season that gave life to so many wonderful characters and series!
 
Fibber McGee and Molly expert, Karl Pearson, is the Series Contributor for this set. Enjoy 20 hours, 39 shows of pure fun.

5 of 5 Fibber and Molly January 18, 2019
Reviewer: Frank Mills from Harvard, IL United States  
I haven't listened to all of this yet but the war years, to me, are the best of the Fibber McGee and Molly series.  They were very good a weaving the home front into their show and were also good at remembering to mention those overseas.  They found comical ways to deal with rationing and the black market and talked about everyday life during the war.

Reviewer: Patrick F. Wirtz from McHenry, IL United States  
We have nearly all your Fibber McGee & Molly Shows and have enjoyed them all for many years. I especially like the 1943-44 Season because it is during WWII - I am a serious WWII historian.

5 of 5 Fibber McGee and Molly 1943/1944 Season January 14, 2019
Reviewer: Kenneth Hallock from TAPPAN, NY United States  
The product is excellent as has always been the case. 6 lost episodes included make this set complete and a terrific value. Always a first day purchase when these are released. With they could come out quicker, but the excellent quality  makes the wait worth it.     A Very Satisfied Customer.    Ken Hallock
