American Family Robinson - Pgm 42
Oct 23rd, 2009 by randsesotericotr
Now we return to Centerville for "American Family Robinson", a serial drama on the life of a small town newspaper editor and his wacky family, sponsored by the National Industrial Council as part of their mid-1930s propaganda efforts to combat FDR's New Deal economic policies.
This week, Luke and Mrs. Robinson rush to greet newlyweds Betty and Dick at the railroad station as their daughter and new son in law return from their honeymoon. Of course, this fun little comedic episode quickly turns into a conversation about how farmers don't like socialism.
The show was transferred from an original World Broadcasters, Inc acetate transcription, matrix number SS 8722-2.
