Alan Young Show

The Alan Young Show is an American radio and television series presented in diverse formats over a nine-year period and starring British-Canadian-American actor Alan Young. The series began on NBC Radio as a summer replacement situation comedy in 1944, featuring vocalist Bea Wain. It then moved to ABC Radio with Jean Gillespie portraying Young's girlfriend Betty. The program was next broadcast by NBC for a 1946-47 run and was off in 1948. When it returned to NBC in 1949, Louise Erickson played Betty and Jim Backus was heard as snobbish playboy Hubert Updike III, a character he later adapted as Thurston Howell III in Gilligan's Island [wikipedia]
