Premise:
The trials and tribulations of Fibber and Molly McGee, a married couple, residing at 79 Wistful Vista, who are beset with problems due to Fibber,
an amateur inventor and expert liar.

This was an unsuccessful attempt to turn a long-running radio series into a television program.

The radio version of "Fibber McGee & Molly" premiered April 16, 1935 on NBC's Blue Network. Real-life married couple Jim and Marian Jordan portrayed
Fibber and Molly. On June 29, 1936, the series moved to NBC's more popular Red Network. By the early 1940s, "Fibber McGee & Molly" was one of America's
top radio programs.
The Jordans portrayed the McGees in four theatrical films: "This Way Please" (1937), "Look Who's Laughing" (1941), "Here We Go Again" (1942) and
"Heavenly Days" (1944).
The couple, though, was reluctant to move into television. According to Jim Jordan, they was given several opportunities to take their show to the new medium.
But the Jordans, preferring to stick with radio, turned down all TV offers.
The "Fibber McGee and Molly" radio series ended in March 1956.
The Jordans continued with "Just Molly and Me," a series of comedy shorts broadcast on NBC Radio's "Monitor" program.
By 1959, Marian's health was declining. She died on April 7, 1961. Jim Jordan died on April 1, 1988

Note:
"TV Guide" magazine listed the wrong "Fibber McGee and Molly" episodes for 01-Dec-1959, 08-Dec-1959 and 15-Dec-1959.

Fortunately, daily newspapers such as the Long Beach Press-Telegram, were better equipped than TV Guide to keep up with NBC's episode changes.
