These shows, when they first aired, were before my time. But in my view they've all withstood the test of time and are still as funny now as when they first aired. Some of the shows started in the 1950s and went into the 60s, but for purposes of this diary I will still consider them 1950s shows.
I know I do not have a complete list of all shows from the 50s, but I wanted to capture the top sitcoms of the era that have youtube.clips for them.
Did I miss one of your favorites? If so please feel free to add it.
