Hazel is an American television situation comedy about a competent, take-charge, live-in maid named Hazel Burke (Shirley Booth) and her employers, the Baxters. The show was based on the popular single-panel comic strip by cartoonist Ted Key, which appeared in The Saturday Evening Post. George Baxter (Don DeFore) is a partner in the law firm of Butterworth, Hatch, Noll and Baxter – Hazel calls him “Mr. B”. George’s wife, Dorothy (Whitney Blake) is an interior decorator, whom Hazel nicknames “Missy”. Their son Harold (Bobby Buntrock) is dubbed “Sport” by Hazel. The family dog is Smiley. Shirley Booth received two Emmys for her role in Hazel.
