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 One of the best! January 18, 2019
Reviewer: T. Zimmerman from Kalamazoo, MI United States  
Fibber McGee & Molly is one of the best radio shows of all time.  Packaging the shows by season is the ideal way to listen.  The 1940s is probably the 'golden' era for the show.  The cast was at it's height and the musical segments are quite good.  You can't go wrong with this series.

5 of 5 Absolutely stunning audio restoration January 15, 2019
Reviewer: David P. Marlatt from RICHLAND, MI United States  
It's a real treat to listen to FMG & M in these wonderfully restored recordings. Keep up the good work preserving our popular culture heritage. Terrific to have to listen to these shows as a broadcast season.
