From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Stu Erwin Show (also known as Trouble with Father) was a United States television sitcom which aired from 1950 to 1955. It starred Stuart Erwin and June Collyer, a real life married couple, with Ann Todd and Sheila James portraying their fictional daughters (Merry Anders replaced Ann Todd in the final season). It was produced by Roland D. Reed and Hal Roach, Jr., and filmed at Hal Roach Studios in Culver City, California. The series ran for a total of 128 episodes. It originally aired without a laugh track (one was added in its final season), and each episode was around 26 minutes long without commercials [during its original network run on ABC, it was sponsored by General Mills (1950-54) and American Tobacco (1954-55)]. It appears many episodes of the program have fallen into the public domain. Despite its popularity and positive critical reception at the time, it is largely forgotten today (repeats were widely syndicated by Official Films through the late '60s). One notable aspect of the show was that it featured an African American (Willie Best) in a supporting role.
