A Date With Judy   (1947)
Search for 'A Date With Judy' on eBay

Publisher: DC Comics

Publication Date: October 1947 - November 1960

Country: United States

Language: English

Notes:
A Date With Judy was a multi-media franchise that peaked at about the time this comic started. It began its life in 1941 as a radio show. Aimed at the teenage audience, it began its life as as an off-season (that is, summertime) replacement. Starting with its fourth season in 1944, it graduated to the "main" season and became a fixture of the prime time schedule for NBC Radio.

By the 1947-48 season, A Date With Judy had become popular enough to warrant both a film and a comic series.

In 1950, the now-franchise was one of those tapped to make the jump from radio to television. Unluckily, however, it was not continued by NBC's established television network, but rather the brand new ABC. A distant third in the ratings, ABC didn't, at the time, have anything like full coverage of the United States. Nor did it have a genuine hit of any kind. ABC was the least attractive network of that age, and programs struggled to hold a spot on the schedule. A Date with Judy was no exception. ABC executives initially failed to recognize the progress the franchise had made on radio. Believing it had little prime-time appeal, they premiered it on daytime Saturday TV in the summer of 1951. It returned to that slot in the summer of 1952. It was only in 1953 that it made it to prime time, albeit as a mid-season replacement. The show ended quietly in September 1953, never having managed to equal its radio success on television.

Of all its media outlets, the comic proved its longest-lived. DC's spin on the character lasted slightly longer, in fact, than its combined runs on NBC Radio and ABC Television.
