Fibber McGee and Molly was first broadcast in 1935 and ran in a variety of formats until the final broadcast in 1956. Jim and Marian Jordan ,real-life husband and wife Vaudevillians, played Fibber and his wife Molly in this hilarious domestic comedy. The show made good use of running gags. Probably the best remembered is McGees junk-filled closet, which always crashed down on anyone that happened to open the door. The program's lovable characters included Mayor LaTrivia, Doc Gamble, Mrs. Uppington, Wallace Wimple, Alice Darling, Gildersleeve, Beulah, Myrt, and the Old Timer.
