Situation Comedy (1942 - 1944)
Sponsored by Drene Shampoo, Abie's Irish Rose stars the young newlyweds from Jewish and Catholic background, Abie and Rosemary Levy. It began as a broadway show in 1922 with a long run of 2,327 performances. The old time radio show premiered on Knickerbocker Playhouse. Abie and Rosemary are deeply in love and elope much to their families' disgust. Family bickering ensues until Rosemary gives birth to twins on Christmas Day. A few small bickers brew beneath the surface of the father-in-laws in order to give the show flavor and flair. So lather up and rinse that Drene out of your curly locks, because it's time to sit by the fire for another entertaining episode of Abie's Irish Rose.
