Okay Mother (1948-1951)
(originally titled Mothers Incorporated)
(1948 - 1951)
Game Show / Variety
Hosted by Dennis James
Okay Mother was a game show that aired on WABD and the DuMont Television Network
from 1949 to 1951.
Hosted by Dennis James, the program was intended to be a tribute to mothers. The program was unique in that it combined elements of a variety show and a game show. It included interviews, games and the reading of letters from viewers.
One of the elements was the opening segment called the ‘mother-gram’ where James would read a riddle and the ladies in the studio would guess the answer to win a prize. Letters were sent in by viewers nominating some woman as mother of the week, and that woman would also win a prize.
