Gracie and Betty?April 16, 2009
Bea Benaderet was the irreplaceable actress who played Gracie’s forgiving neighbor throughout the show’s run on television. Though three different men played Blanche Morton’s husband, Harry, it was Ms. Benaderet that stayed in her well-deserved role as George and Gracie’s TV neighbor.
Following her run on the Burns & Allen Show, she went on to play roles in several shows including a recurring role in The Beverly Hillbillies and a regular cast member of Petticoat Junction. But her most famous role was still to come. The next time you watch an episode of The Flintstones listen to the voice of Betty Rubble, that’s Blanche.
