Imagine creating and broadcasting half-hour comedies week after week-with, essentially, no models to emulate. This program examines five sitcoms that did just that: I Love Lucy, The Honeymooners, Make Room for Daddy, The Andy Griffith Show, and The Dick Van Dyke Show. The last remaining Honeymooner cast member, Joyce Randolph, speaks candidly about Jackie Gleason's distinctive personality. Marlo Thomas offers fascinating insights about her father Danny and the genesis of his sitcom. Andy Griffith sits for an extended interview, while both Mary Tyler Moore and Dick Van Dyke recount their collaboration. Part of the series Pioneers of Television.
