TV Fact #229 – June 10th, 2015:

“The Jack Benny Show” (1950-1965), which originally was a radio program for several years before being adapted to a television comedy, featured most of Jack Benny’s original radio cast appearing on television with him. This included Don Wilson, Eddie ‘Rochester’ Anderson, Dennis Day, and his real-life wife Mary Livingstone made several guest appearances. He enjoyed poking a this. For example, in one episode Jack dreamed that he and Mary (his platonic friend on the show) were married and had a teenage daughter. Their daughter in that episode was played by their real daughter, Joan Benny. Family always sticks together…even dreams apparently.
