The Betty Hutton Show was a Syndication network sitcom created by Stanley Roberts, starring Betty Hutton in the lead role.

The show aired from October 1, 1959 to June 30, 1960, lasting for one season and 30 episodes.

It was sponsored by General Foods' Post Cereals and produced by Desilu & Hutton Productions.


The series centered on Goldie Appleby, a former showgirl-turned-manicurist who inherits a deceased millionaire's $60 million fortune and his three children.

Although Betty Hutton was a popular actress, the show only lasted for 30 episodes before being cancelled, mainly because it was scheduled opposite Syndication's popular series, "The Donna Reed Show."
