Honest Harold was created by Harold Peary after his departure from The Great Gildersleeve in midc 1950. The show failed to gain any mea­sure of an audience in its lone season. Its failure was much discussed at the time and was attrib­uted to several factors. Willard Waterman was considered excellent as the new Gildersleeve, .and in Honest Harold Peary seemed to be gang­ing onto too many Gildersleeve elements. Peary had professed boredom with the role but.. had emerged on the rival network with a strong sound-alike, complete with the famous "dirty laugh. "
