This show had everything going for it. A Hollywood star in
the lead role, a great radio network, excellent writing, and
Still, CBS cancelled it after just three months.
Mickey Rooney played Shorty Bell, who worked in the newspaper business like his father before him.
But Shorty wanted to be a reporter, instead of the truck driver
who delivered the newspaper bundles around town.
This is the first episode of Shorty Bell, from March 28, 1948.
