In the Corner with Dan Hughes

Aug 15, 2011

Remember Ted Baxter's girlfriend (and later, his wife) Georgette on the Mary Tyler Moore Show?  See if you don't think her character might have been based on Irma from this old-time radio show, My Friend Irma. 

This show was so popular in its day that it also gave us a newspaper comic strip, a comic book, two movies, and a television series.

My Friend Irma was on the radio from 1947 to 1954.  This episode, Irma's Inheritance, first aired on April 5, 1948.
