Here’s what I mean.
Grandpa Munster (The Munsters) meets a woman (supposedly) in Sioux City, of course it was ages ago he supposedly met her.
Uncle Joe (Petticoat Junction) says “I almost got married in Sioux City,” but I beat it out of there. He talks about Sioux City at other times.
Mr Wilson (Dennis The Menace) says “I met quite a girl in Sioux City, of course that was long before I knew you Martha.”
And today I watched a repeat of * Father Knows Best* and Jim is also talking about a girl he knew in Sioux City.
Was there anything about Sioux City (I’m assuming it’s Sioux City, IA though Iowa is never mentioned), that would make it common to sitcom writers.
I know they have phrases like “Will it play in Peoria” so they must make reference to other small towns
Or do you think it’s probably that all those shows had the same writer and that is why Sioux City is mentioned.
