Baby Snooks | Old Time Radio

Baby Snooks is a hilarious old time radio comedy show. It starred comedienne Fanny Brice as a mischievous young girl. The character of Baby Snooks AKA Baby Snookums, was first created in the comics in 1904.The character of Baby Snooks was taken to the stage and was an occasional skit on other old time radio comedies.
In 1944 Baby Snooks got her own old time radio show and it immediately became a hit. In a nutshell, Baby Snooks was a classic old time radio sit-com style show. It revolved around her, her baby brother, and mother and father. She was portrayed as a pain in the butt, mischievous, small child, always full of questions, and full of innocence. Just like a real kid. Her most famous words were, whyyyy daddy?
Fanny Brice wore dentures, and it was by accident that her character talked the way she did. In the Baby Snooks radio show, she always had a lisp. It was during an appearance on another show, when she didn’t have her dentures, that she came up with the idea of acting without them. She used her lisp on the Baby Snooks show and it worked. Audiences loved the show and the way she talked.
The episodes were mainly typical family fare. The Baby Snooks show had a wonderful stable of supporting actors and actresses. Her father was played by a few actors over the years, her mother was also played by at least 3 different old time radio actresses. There were many recurring characters during the run of this show, but most memorable was postman Jerry Dingle, played by Danny Thomas.
Fanny Brice was a talented and celebrated actress before Baby Snooks. She was an alumni of the Ziegfeld Follies, and did numerous old time radio parts, stage performances, and was on TV one time. She played Baby Snooks to the hilt, even dressing as a small child sometimes during production of the show and during press appearances. On a somber note though, Fanny Brice died too young, in 1951, at the age of 59, shortly after suffering a massive cerebral hemorrhage about a week before. After her passing they did a tribute show, but that was the end of Baby Snooks old time radio show.
There are 67 episodes of Baby Snooks on one MP3 CD. Some episodes are from the real radio show, Baby Snooks, some are clips of Brice doing Baby Snooks on other old time radio shows. This CD is really a compilation of the character, not necessarily the radio show. Episodes vary in length. If you prefer regular Audio CD, we have 10 available.
