The main claim to fame of this series is the fact that, unlike many other American sitcoms of the 1950s, it appeared every weekday at 7:15 pm ET, after Captain Video and His Video Rangers during its original run; the show was written by Marge Greene. Each episode was 15 minutes long; the series, at one point, received a Neilson rating of 13.6. The series was set in the living room and kitchen of characters Marge and Jeff, who were accompanied by their dog Paisley. Costing just $5,000 a week to produce and aired on 40 stations, the series used a mix of rehearsed and ad-lib dialogue, based on a scenario written by Marge Greene, it was a local Philadelphia-aired series titled Marge and Fred. At least 27 episodes exist at the UCLA Film and Television Archive, four at the Paley Center for Media. UCLA records show that the show never had a commercial sponsor and instead featured public service announcements.
