Hazel (NBC 1961-1966, Shirley Booth, Don De Fore)

Hazel was based on a cartoon character (created by Ted Kay) that appeared in the Saturday Evening Post. The simple plotline of this sitcom saw George Baxter be super efficient at the office but totally at the mercy of his house keeper Hazel when at home. Hazel ran the house with total precision.

George also had a wife Dorothy and a son Harold. The show began on NBC but then in 1965 switched to CBS and with that move came some major changes. George and Dorothy departed (supposedly to work in the Middle East) and Hazel (along with Harold) moved into George’s brother Steve’s home where things carried on much the same as before with Hazel ruling the roost over Steve, his wife Barbara and daughter Susie.
