OLD TIME RADIO - 1 CD - 6 mp3 Total Time: 2:57:35
The Fabulous Dr Tweedy ran from 1946 to 1947 and starred Frank Morgan as Dr. Tweedy who is the dean of the all men’s Potts College and is also the loving father of adopted son, Sidney. Frank Morgan was no newcomer to Radio. From the earliest days of Radio Frank Morgan could be heard on any number of variety, comedy and dramatic programs of the era. While Morgan often filled in for other performers in long-running variety programs of the era, he was rarely headlined as the lead in a program of his own. In fact, the entire Morgan family was prominent in Radio throughout the Golden Age of Radio.
An obvious effort to leverage Frank Morgan's most popular characterizations over the years, the quixotic, selectively absent-minded Doctor of Philosphy, Thaddeus Q. Tweedy seemed the perfect amalgam of Morgan's various film personae. A tenured Professor of Philosophy at his previous college, Dr. Tweedy got the boot for repeatedly flunking star players of the school's football team. The last straw was his flunking the entire backfield of Willowitz, Mankiewitz, Horowitz and Stinkowitz. The president of the college suggested that Dr. Tweedy pursue a recent opening with Potts College, in Pottsfield.
Enroute to Potts College, Tweedy inadvertently insults Miss Tilcy (Nana Bryant), the Headmistress of Potts College, who happens to be traveling on the same train. Originally a girls' college of long standing, within a couple of episodes--again owing to Dr. Tweedy's misadventures--Dr. Thaddeus Q. Tweedy finds himself installed as the Dean of Men. That unlikely position was created for him after persuading the founding family of Potts College to go co-ed, the better to capitalize on the thousands of G.I.s pursing the G.I. Bill of Education.
As the series progresses, Dr. Tweedy acquires a tramp as his valet, Welby Skinkle (Harry Von Zell), the friendship of the Chairman of the Board of Trustees, Mr. Potts (Gale Gordon), and a dog named Baldy. The show continues to trace the charming and humorous misadventures of Dr. Tweedy for a total of twenty-six scripts.
