Default Mary Kay & Johnny - the first U.S. sitcom

Before Ozzie & Harriet there was Mary Kay & Johnny. A real-life young married couple who starred in their own sitcom in the late 1940's. Also most notable for being the first couple to share a bed, have a parallel pregnancy (sitcom & real life) before I Love Lucy , and the first onscreen toilet (taboo item on classic TV but it humanizes the characters).

I would love to see this series remastered and released on DVD but it won't happen.

BTW Mary Kay is still among the living. The former actress is pushing 90 and her baby (also played her TV baby) is already collecting social security!!!

I wonder why in those days a toilet needed to be seen. Sound effects I could see but even that was considered bold. We just assumed people used the bathroom and we didn't need to be reminded.

I was just thinking about the toilet situation when I was watching Ozzie and Harriet the other day. Obviously they had a shower & the boys even had their own bathroom (an episode had Rick going into a bathroom and getting himself wet....pajamas and all). It's like some one-dimensional fantasy where toilets don't exist in classic tv-land. How the hell can they do their business

Mary Kay and Johnny is the only 50's show I recall with a toilet seen to be honest.

Plus with all the Aunt Jemima pancakes, cokes, burgers. milkshakes, Harriet's home cooking, milk, Tutti Frutti ice-cream, etc. it all has to come out somewhere?!?!?!?! God can those people put it all away on that show.
