In the radio series, McConnell, a jovial fat man who often joked about his weight, was a former dishwasher and prizefighter. Buster Brown, a boy who lives in a shoe, is played by Jerry Marin. The show always began with the theme song, "I got shoes. You got shoes. Why, everybody's got to have shoes! And there's only one kinda shoes for me – good ole Buster Brown Shoes! The show always ended with Grandie the Piano's final thump.

Smilin' Ed's Buster Brown Gang continued on as a television program in 1950. Fore more Smilin' Ed, see also: Aladdin Lamp.
