When a programme runs for years, and sometimes decades, it is a proven mark of quality and popularity that would be hard to dispel.The situation comedy ‘Fibber McGee and Molly’ ran from 1935 to 1959 on the NBC Red network and was often the most popular and eagerly awaited show of the week. Fibber was a story-teller prone to mad-cap schemes who was gently eased back into reality by his ever-loving wife Molly. The comic duo, played by the real-life married couple of Jim & Marion Jordan, lived in the working-class community of Wistful Vista. Here, they played out their adventures amongst neighbours, friends and acquaintances. Comedy and life came together in an almost perfect blend of American life. 79 Wistful Vista was their home visited weekly by an audience that sought refuge from a long line of exhausting real-life events that stretched from the Great Depression, World War 2, Korea and even Rock N Roll. Here they could find cheer and comfort in the middle of their struggles. With it’s lovable cast, it’s recurring characters, appealing storylines and interludes of music, it was a world that the airwaves and audiences loved.
