Like I Love Lucy, I Married Joan featured an upstanding, sensible husband married to a wacky but well-meaning wife who caused problems everywhere she went. In this case the husband was Brad Stevens (Jim Backus), a domestic court judge. Each episode opened with Judge Stevens in the courtroom relating to the parties involved some similar situation he had encountered with his wife Joan (Joan Davis). The story would be acted out as the show progressed Slapstick, physical comedy was at the core of the show and the crazier the stunts, the better. (Joan did everything from jitterbugging with a chimp to feeding Brad a hot water bottle!) Joan Davis' real-life daughter, co-starred on the show playing the part of her sister. Ms Davis produced the show under her own production company for NBC and the series ran for three years between 1952 and 1955.
