The show was originally 30 minutes then expanded to 60 minutes. This was one of several DuMont network programs to start as a local show on one of its affiliates. The premiere episode featured Marilyn Maxwell in her TV debut. On April 9, 1950, DuMont replaced this show with Starlit Time in the same time slot.

There was also an hour-long TV series of the same name on CBS from 1955-56.

Episode statusEdit

Only one episode of the series survives, which is held at the UCLA Film and Television Archive.[2]
