"The Bickersons" started in 1946 on NBC Radio, and between 1947-51 on CBS Radio. The radio version
starred Frances Langford and Don Ameche.

 Lew Parker (later familiar as That Girl's harried, slightly overbearing father Lew Marie) took the role of
John Bickerson, as he also did on radio a season earlier. 

The Bickersons first appeared on the DuMont tv series "Star Time".
They were also featured on "The Steve Allen Show" and "Sid Caesar's Show of Shows" as well as "The Perry Como Show".

Don Ameche and Frances Langford's work together didn't end with "The Bickersons", either.

in a sketch series known as "The Couple Next Door."
