In 2013, the Guinness Book of World Records awarded White with the distinction of “Longest TV Career for an Entertainer (Female)” at 74 years of work in the industry. Of course, most people remember her in The Golden Girls and even in The Mary Tyler Moore Show, but now you can see how she got started with the shows in this set.
Life with Elizabeth
- Starring Betty White & Del Moore
- 20 Episodes
Betty White’s first sitcom! Life with Elizabeth was unusual for a sitcom in the 1950’s because it was co-produced and owned by 30-year-old woman—White—who still lived with her parents. In the show, White starred as Elizabeth and Del Moore was Alvin. The ordinary couple would get into predicaments in three comic shorts in each episode. According to White, the incidents were usually based on real-life situations that happened to her, Moore, or the writer.
Date with the Angels
- Starring Betty White & Bill Williams
- 9 Episodes
Following Life with Elizabeth, Betty White appeared as Vicki Angel on this sitcom from 1957 to 1958. The show revolved around young Los Angeles newlyweds Vicki Angel and her insurance salesman husband Gus Angel, who get themselves and their friends and neighbors into various comedic situations and antics.
