Synopsis

One of CBS television's most popular and highly rated sitcoms of the 1950s, December Bride, starred Spring Byington and Harry Morgan as next-door neighbor Pete Porter. Pete spent most of his time complaining about his scatterbrained wife Gladys, who was unseen to viewers. In this spin-off series, Gladys emerges as the redhaired comedian Cara Williams. Pete is an insurance salesman, and the happy couple resides in Westwood, California.

Besides leading-man Peter, another carryover from December Bride during the first season was the character of Hilda Crocker (Verna Felton), a close equivalent of I Love Lucy's Ethel Mertz; she appeared in 23 episodes. Frances Rafferty, another December Bride veteran, appeared in seven episodes of Pete and Gladys as Nancy (a different character from her role in the original series). Barbara Stuart had a recurring first-season role as Gladys' friend Alice, and Ernest Truex appeared in six episodes as Gladys' widowed father, "Pop".

Reception

Pete and Gladys never made it into the Nielsen ratings Top 30 during the course of its prime time run. After it ceased production, it was repeated as part of the CBS weekday-morning line up. It aired at 11:30 a.m. EST for two years from October 1, 1962 to October 2, 1964.

Williams was nominated for a 1962 Emmy Award for Outstanding Continued Performance by a Lead Actress in a Comedy Series. She lost to veteran Shirley Booth of NBC's Hazel.
