Episodes from two television sitcoms of the 1950's:
- The Ed Wynn Show (1958) - Starring: Sherry Alberoni, Jacklyn O'Donnell, Herb Vigran - The pilot episode of this very funny situation comedy, not to be confused with the very funny comedy variety show of eight years earlier of the same name.
- The Hank McCune Show (1950) - Starring: Hank McCune, Hanley Stafford, Larry Keating, Arthur Q. Bryan, Sara Berner, Frank Nelson, Tammy Kiper, Geroge Cleveland, Florence Bates - The misadventures of a kindly but bumbling do-gooder and those he tries to help. The show only ran for three months at the end of 1950, but it's influence is still felt today, for better or worse. It was the first show ever to have a laugh-track.
"A 'pilot' is a film made by a producer who wants to pitch the idea for a TV series to the networks. If the network likes the pilot, or if they air the pilot and it gets good response, the producer gets a deal to make more episodes based on the pilot... usually 13 or 26, which will then be aired. If those do well in the ratings the network will request more episodes for a series. Many pilots get made every year, some make it to the air - most don't. We have included first episodes of series in this category, even though they're technically not pilots."
