I Married Joan

Show Summary

I Married Joan is the epitome of the 1950s family sitcom. An upstanding, sensible husband (Judge Bradley Stevens) is married to a wacky, well-meaning wife (Joan Stevens) who causes problems with her hare-brained schemes.
Early episodes opened with Judge Stevens in the courtroom relating to the parties involved some similar situation he had endured with his wife, Joan. Then the action would shift to the Stevens' story. (In syndication most of the opening courtroom scenes were edited out.)
Slapstick and physical comedy was at the core of the show with lots of mugging, waving of arms, and crazy situations. Joan did everything from jitterbugging with a chimp to getting tangled in a harp.
To say this series was patterned after TV's #1 show I Love Lucy would be an understatement. It was not uncommon to find whole chunks of Lucy plots lifted and re-purposed on this series, or physical business originally performed by Lucille Ball re-enacted by Joan Davis.
The show featured several different actors and actresses as the friends of the Stevens' including Hope Emerson, Hal Smith and Dan Tobin. Also featured in seasons two and three was Beverly Wills, Joan Davis' real-life daughter, playing Joan's kid sister, Beverly.
