This LP was released in 1963 and features Joe E. Ross and Fred Gwynne in original scenes from "Car 54 Where Are You?" on the front and back covers.Car 54, Where Are You? is an American sitcom that ran on NBC from 1961 to 1963. Episodes had various directors, the most recognized being Al De Caprio. Stanley Prager and Nat Hiken also directed several episodes. A majority of filming took place on location in the The Bronx,and at Biograph Studios.The series followed the madcap adventures of NYPD officers Gunther Toody (Joe E. Ross) and Francis Muldoon (Fred Gwynne) in the fictional 53rd precinct in The Bronx.
Ross and Gwynne were Gunther Toody and Francis Muldoon. The two actors were as different, both on screen and in real life, as their characters. Toody was short, stocky, nosy, not very bright, and lived with his loud, domineering wife Lucille. Muldoon was very tall, quiet, and more intelligent. He was a shy bachelor, still lived with his mother, and had two younger sisters. Ross dropped out of high school and worked as a singing waiter before becoming a stand-up comic, while Gwynne graduated from Harvard. However, the chemistry between the two was undeniable. Their characters each had a heart of gold and would get caught up in outrageous situations. Other cast members included Beatrice Pons, Al Lewis, Charlotte Rae, Nipsey Russell, Ossie Davis, Paul Reed, and Hank Garrett. This was one of the first sitcoms to regularly feature interesting, usually endearing characters from the whole spectrum of ethnicities, true New Yorkers, a rather significant step for television in the early 1960s.The LP has been autographed on the back cover by Joe E. Ross with a fountain pen in black and Fred Gwynne with a fountain pen in brown.................CONDITION OF VINYL,COVER AND AUTOGRAPH IS VG........................
