Date with the Angels was a sitcom television series that aired on ABC network from 1957 to 1958. The show starred Betty White as Vicki Angel, a young and enthusiastic housewife who always found herself in amusing situations. Her husband, Gus Angel, was played by Bill Williams, who was also the executive producer of the show.

The premise of Date with the Angels revolved around the everyday lives of the Angels, their friends, and their neighbors. Vicki was constantly trying to keep up with the Joneses and would often find herself in over her head, causing comedic chaos.

Other main characters in the show included Vicki's best friend, Alice, played by Natalie Masters, and their neighbor Roger, played by Jimmy Boyd. Roy Engel played Vicki's boss, and Richard Reeves played a police officer who was always coming around to check on the neighborhood.

Burton Hill Mustin played a recurring character, Mister Finley, a grumpy old man who was always complaining about the noise or some other trivial matter. Maudie Prickett was another recurring character, portraying Vicki's nosy neighbor, and Richard Deacon played a dentist who was a patient of Gus's.

The show was set in an idyllic suburban neighborhood, with white picket fences and perfectly manicured lawns. However, the Angel's household was always a little chaotic, thanks to Vicki's overzealous attempts at domestic perfection.

In each episode, Vicki would come up with a plan or idea that she thought would impress her friends or make her household run more smoothly. However, her efforts would invariably backfire, resulting in hilarious misadventures.

Betty White, who would later become one of America's most beloved actresses, was perfectly cast as Vicki Angel. Her comedic timing and physical comedy were impeccable, and she had a natural charm that made her instantly likable.

The show was a hit with audiences, and it ran for two seasons before being canceled in 1958. However, it remains a classic example of a 1950s sitcom, with its wholesome humor and focus on family values.

Date with the Angels was not a groundbreaking show in terms of its storyline or production values. However, it was a solidly entertaining sitcom that provided plenty of laughs and good-natured fun. It was a product of its time, reflecting the ideals and values of post-war America, and it remains a charming and enjoyable show to watch today.
