TV Shows - Amos 'n' Andy

Amos 'n' Andy is a situation comedy based on stereotypes of African-Americans and popular in the United States from the 1920s through the 1950s. The show began as one of the first radio comedy serials, written and voiced by Freeman Gosden and Charles Correll and originating from station WMAQ in Chicago, Illinois. After the series was first broadcast in 1928, it grew in popularity and became a huge influence on the radio serials that followed. The program ran on radio as a nightly serial from 1928 until 1943, as a weekly situation comedy from 1943 until 1955, and as a nightly disc-jockey program from 1954 until 1960. A television adaptation ran on CBS-TV from 1951 until 1953, and continued in syndicated reruns from 1954 until 1966.

1 This show was created in the 1920s. It was funny as hell, and I'm a black man. I see it for what it is. It was common to be shiftless and street smart when that's about all that the country had to offer you in those days. It wasn't like they were able to pursue their dreams in this country at that time, so they hustled and schemed, and tried to make it the best way they knew how, and usually due to their lack of education failed miserably. Even today it is funny to see someone trying to do something that they just aren't equipped for. Never Boned. -- Submitted By: (fletch000) on February 10, 2010, 4:37 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Despite the uproar, show wasn't nearly a racist as most of the shows on the WB are today, but the late 1950s was the wrong time to produce a television version of the long-running radio comedy about two supposedly shiftless (but ultimately nice and street-smart) black friends. -- Submitted By: (GregEichelberger) on July 14, 2009, 11:53 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
