In the Corner with Dan Hughes

May 16, 2011

A Date With Judy was on the air for a full decade, from 1941 to 1950. 

It was so popular that it spawned a movie starring Jane Powell and Elizabeth Taylor, a TV series which ran from 1951 to 1953, and a comic book which was issued from 1947 to 1960. 

The show was similar to Henry Aldrich and Archie, but its star was a teenage girl rather than a teenage boy.

This episode, A New Dress for the Dance, originally aired on May 18, 1946.
