Hartman portrays Albie Morrison, the father and error-prone head of the household,[2] about whom most of the episodes are centered. Albie works in the advertising section of his local newspaper, and he often has new ideas that go awry in the workplace as well as failed handyman activities at home.[3][4] Wray, best remembered for her role in King Kong (1933), plays Albie's wife, Catherine.[5] Natalie Wood is the 15-year-old daughter, Ann,[6] and "Bobby" Hyatt (1939–2007) is the 14-year-old son, Junior Morrison. Larry J. Blake appeared fourteen times in the role of "Frank".[1]

Billboard described Hartman's lead role as "average"; indeed the series attempted to present the "average family."[7]

Guest stars included Tol Avery, Barbara Billingsley, Douglas Fowley, Frank Ferguson (five times as Murdock), Lyle Talbot, Steven Terrell (five times as Tom), and Joey D. Vieira (six episodes as Hollis).[1]

Production notes

The Pride of the Family aired at 9 p.m. EST on Fridays. It followed ABC's The Pepsi-Cola Playhouse anthology series and preceded the short-lived, The Comeback Story, a reality show hosted by George Jessel and Arlene Francis. It was slated opposite The Big Story on NBC and Schlitz Playhouse of Stars on CBS.[8] The series also aired in limited rebroadcasts in June and July 1955 on CBS.[3]

The Revue production, now NBCUniversal Television Group, was filmed at Republic Studios in North Hollywood, California.[1]
