The Pruitts of Southampton Promo

Loading the player…

Here’s a promotional spot for ABC’s The Pruitts of Southampton, which premiered in September of 1966. The sitcom, which was broadcast in color, starred Phyllis Diller as the head of a wealthy Long Island family that has gone broke but must keep up appearances for the sake of the country (which, presumably, would sink into economic depression should news of the Pruitts poverty become public knowledge). The series was revamped in mid-season as The Phyllis Diller Show but was cancelled at the end of the season.
