NBC had a hit radio series with A Date With Judy (see show 52), and CBS wanted a similar program. They found a series of humorous stories about a precocious teenage girl in Good Housekeeping magazine, and CBS adapted the stories for radio.
Corliss had a boyfriend, Dexter, played by Sam Edwards, a famous character actor who many years later played the banker on Little House on the Prairie.
The radio series was so popular that it spawned a book, a comic book, a Broadway play, and a television series.
