A Date With Judy began as a summer replacement series for the Bob Hope Radio Show. It's popularity grew rapidly, however, as the teen audience could really identify with Judy's typical teenage problems with boyfriends, parents, and at school. Their parents enjoyed the series as it offered an opportunity to reminisce about their youth.
As an interesting bit of trivia, Peggy Wilson who played Judy's mother on A Date With Judy was the real life wife of Don Wilson, best known as the announcer on the Jack Benny Program!
A Date With Judy was so popular on the radio that it inspired a comic book, a feature film in 1948 starring Jane Powell as Judy, and a TV series during the 1952/53 season!
