Our Miss Brooks was a comedy series about a high school English teacher who was constantly getting herself and her Principal into jams. She also adamantly chased a fellow, single, male teacher who never saw her as anything more than a co-worker no matter how persistent she became.
There was also a Our Miss Brooks TV Show that aired from 1952-56 for 130 episodes! As was typical, the radio version began before the TV version. Untypically, however, the radio show continued during the TV series' entire run and kept airing for a full year after the TV version left the air! There was also an Our Miss Brooks stage play in 1950 and a movie in 1955.
