McGee Vs Gildersleeve

McGee Vs. Gildersleeve
The battles of the last century, between 2 of the funniest men in radio!

Fibber McGee and Molly premiered in 1935. By 1940, it was a national sensation. It became the top-rated program in America. The program’s lovable characters included Mayor LaTrivia, Doc Gamble, Mrs. Uppington, Wallace Wimple, Alice Darling, Beulah, Myrt, the Old Timer,and Gildersleeve. Hal Peary played a number of different characters in the late 1930's, like a butcher or a dentist. Eventually, the writers created the character of Throckmorton P. Gildersleeve for Peary to portray.
Gildersleeve became so popular that in August 1941, "The Great Gildersleeve" became the first major program to spin off another program. This collection is a celebration of the birth of Gildersleeve and some of the best battles with his buddy, Fibber McGee on "The Johnson Wax Program with Fibber McGee and Molly".
