Life is a piece of wedding cake for Judge Stevens (Jim Backus) and his scatterbrained wife Joan (Joan Davis). CBS had Lucy, but NBC had Joan Davis and her wonderful brand of physical, knock-about comedy from 1952 to 1953. Each week, kindly Judge Bradley Stevens counsels folks in domestic court by using examples from his own married life. Joan Davis, a comedic veteran of vaudeville and a long career in films, brings her inimitable comic timing and charm to each of their wonderful misadventures!
