The People’s Choice
Starring Jackie Cooper
The People’s Choice was a 1950s sitcom. It was one of those unforgettable series because it featured an unusual gimmick….a dog that talked to the audience. The People’s Choice was the story of a city councilman, Socrates “Sock” Miller, who had frequent run-ins with the city’s mayor, John Peoples. These run-ins were aggravated by the fact that Sock’s girlfriend was the mayor’s daughter, Mandy. Sock had a pet basset hound, Cleo, whose observations were made audible to the audience (but not the cast). Please note that these rare shows are film and tape transfers from the best available assets. Very enjoyable series. 31 Full-length episodes.
