Applesauce enjoyed a successful run throughout the country for more than two seasons. It is one of those typically American comedies of small-town folk in which the amusing set of characters are revealed through clashes of interest and love. It is shown that "Applesauce" (in other words a cheerful optimism and the ability to tell other people how nice they are) will surmount most of the obstacles in this life. Hazel Robinson has foolishly engaged herself to a young man called Jenkins. But all along she is really in love with Bill McAllister who, though hard up, wins out in the end and achieves not only success but happiness as Hazel's future husband. A bright, amusing and cheerful comedy, especially recommended for high schools.
