Young Mr Bobbin

1 9 5 1 – 1 9 5 2 (USA)

18-year-old Alexander Bobbin (Jackie Kelk) has just graduated from high school and is planning his future. He has dozens of aspirations but little actual ability.

He lives with his two old-maid aunts – tall and tidy Aunt Clara (Jane Seymour) and short and daft Aunt Bertha (Nydia Westman) – who have raised him and his younger sister Susie (Laura Weber) since the death of their parents in a car accident.

Alexander is in love with the girl next door, Nancy (Pat Hosley). She also likes him but wants to keep her options open.

The series was broadcast live on Sunday nights between 26 August 1951 and 18 May 1952 from the NBC studios in Manhattan.
