The Donna Reed Show was a wholesome family sitcom that ran from 1958 to 1966 on ABC Television.
It was the story of the Stone Family headed by Dr. Alex Stone, a pediatrician, his beautiful wife Donna & their two children Mary & Jeff.
Dr. Stone had an office right in the home and from time to time you saw him treat patients but mostly the stories were about his wife & children.
His daughter Mary played by Shelley Fabares was a popular high school student and her younger brother Jeff was an active kid who sometimes got into minor trouble.
Donna Stone was the perfect housewife & mother, she was not only beautiful but loving & caring and would always help others.
In the first season Donna teaches Jeff the art of boxing, has a baby left on her doorstep and has one of Mary's boyfriends develop a crush on her.
First season guest stars included Hans Conred, Kathleen Freeman, Mary Treen, Buster Keaton, Bobby Burgess, Richard Deacon, George Hamilton, Howard McNear & Roberta Shore.
