Upcoming movie "Yoo Hoo, Mrs. Goldberg" showing in New York on July 10, 2009, was spawned from the television series "The Goldbergs". Gertrude Berg won the first ever Emmy for lead actress in a comedy series. The Goldbergs, a domestic comedy-drama series about a struggling Jewish family in New York City, aired from 1949-1956, after almost twenty years on radio. Striking a gentle balance between old world values and assimilation into the American melting pot, The Goldbergs is a show about the importance of neighborhood and family. Writer/actress Gertrude Berg plays the matriarch of the extended family with charm, warmth and wit. Her signature "Yoo-Hoo, Mrs. Bloom" at the beginning of each episode became a national catch phrase. Life magazine wrote of The Goldbergs, "For millions of Americans, listening to the show...is a happy ritual, like slipping on a pair of comfortable old shoes that never seem to wear out."

It was like eating a potato chip, I just couldn't stop at one. I watched all 10 episodes..beginning to end!! The little nuances from each character made me want to get to know them personally; so the only logically thing to do, was to keep watching. There is so much good wholesome comedy in this little series of episodes, I quickly became a fan! From "Molly's" endearing mix-ups of common idiomatic expressions, to the loving tone of her voice, I wished I had a family member or a friend like her.
It's amazing the insight you get into the Jewish culture just by watching "The Goldbergs". It doesn't delve into the faith, not by any means, but there's a quiet spiritual undertone that binds this family together. The accents of "Molly, Jake, and Uncle David are also endearing, it makes you want to listen to them for hours.
I highly recommend watching this series of episodes, if only to bring a smile to your face!! Enjoy!!!
