Some radio shows were so popular that the rival networks ran imitations.
The Adventures of the Abbotts was in a way a copy show. It was about a sophisticated married couple who solved mysteries, a la Nick and Nora Charles, and Mr. and Mrs. North.
But this particular copy was pretty much as good as (and
sometimes better than) the originals. The Abbotts began as a
series of novels by Frances Crane.
This episode, The Fabulous Emerald Necklace, first aired on April 3, 1955.
