Good Morning, World (1967)

It was designed as a starring vehicle for Ronnie Schell, who had proven to be fairly popular as "Duke", one of Gomer's buddies, in the hit program Gomer Pyle, USMC over the three previous seasons. Schell's character, Larry Clarke, was a morning disc jockey and part of a morning drive-time team, "Lewis and Clarke", on a smallish AM radio station in Los Angeles. The show also starred Joby Baker, who was known for guest starring in many sitcoms. The show's creators were Carl Reiner, Sheldon Leonard, Bill Persky, and Sam Denoff, all of whom had worked on The Dick Van Dyke Show, and was inspired by Persky & Denoff's personal experiences working as continuity writers for several disc jockeys on radio station WNEW-AM in New York during the 1950s. In fact, William B. Williams, one of the station's most popular deejays, received screen credit for originating the show's title (adapted from his famous opening greeting, "Hello, World!").

Despite having the long-established and popular Red Skelton Show as a lead-in, and the young Goldie Hawn as a minor neighbor character, the show did not do well on Nielsen ratings and Schell returned to Gomer Pyle as Duke for the next season, which was also the show's last. Los Angeles Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully did voice-over narration in some of the episodes.

Unlike most sitcoms of the era, Good Morning, World was filmed in front of a live audience (standard practice at the time was to film an episode on a closed set and add a laugh track during post-production). However, a laugh track was used to "sweeten" the live audience reactions.
