Great Gildersleeve


great gildersleeve

The Great Gildersleeve began airing on NBC August 31, 1941. It was one of broadcast history's earliest spin-off programs. Built around Throckmorton P. Gildersleeve, a character who had been a staple on the classic radio comedy Fibber Mcgee and Molly, The Great Gildersleeve enjoyed its greatest success in the 1940s. Actor Harold Peary played the character during its transition from the parent show into the spin-off and later in a quartet of feature films released at the height of the show's popularity. The show ended in 1957 after several programing and schedule changes, including the loss of Harold Peary to CBS in one of their legendary talent raids of NBC.
