The Dulcet Tones of Walter Denton

Ivan Shreve has a great post about Our Miss Brooks and some crummy public-domain DVDs of the TV series.

Ivan hasn't seen many episodes of the TV version, but I'll go him one better: I haven't seen any episodes of the TV series. It wasn't shown when I was growing up, and for some reason I could never find a copy of any episodes (except for the movie version, which kind of ruined everything by getting Miss Brooks together with Mr. Boynton). I have heard several episodes of the radio show, and agree with Ivan that it was one of the best radio sitcoms.

Ah, Our Miss Brooks. That series kicked around one of our local stations for years, well into the 1990s, popping up regularly late nights and weekends whenever there was an open half-hour in the schedule. Wish now I'd taped them, but back then it seemed impossible to concieve that there would come a day when Miss Brooks wouldn't be around.
