FIBBER McGEE & MOLLY and INFORMATION PLEASE
Let’s start the new year off with some New Year’s-themed episodes. First off, the stars of “Fibber McGee and Molly” are thrilled to be invited to the New Year’s Eve dance at the highfalutin Wistful Vista Country Club. They’ll be mixing with “society so high your nose will bleed.” Then jump forward a couple of days to the first episode of “Information Please” from 1939. The panelists will be quizzed about the previous year’s events, and they’ll have to untangle a very tricky poem.
