In the early 1970's, it seemed as though the syndicated landscape was welcoming just about anything. For example, Wally Bruner left What's My Line? for the how-to series, Wally's Workshop, though Line announcer Johnny Olsen announced for Bruner on the short-lived series as well.
And, then, there's The Pet Set.
Two years before joining The Mary Tyler Moore Show, where she'd win 2 Emmy awards, Betty White hosted & co-produced (with husband Allen Ludden) this 1 year entry, in which she invited many of her Hollywood friends to bring their pets, be they dogs, cats, birds, or whatever, onto the show. It was, on a national level, equivalent to the similar shows produced in different parts of the country. Where I live, there had been a long-running Sunday morning show, Pets on Parade, which ran during the 60's & 70's before being cancelled. Today, the ABC affiliate in my district runs a short feature during the late afternoon news 5 days a week, mostly as an infomercial for the local humane society, since many of the pets are strays looking for homes.
I'm digressing. As I noted, Pet Set lasted just one year, but wasn't lacking in star power. Allen Betty, a fan channel devoted to the Luddens, uploaded this episode, with special guest Doris Day, who would be reunited with one of the co-stars of her CBS sitcom, Billy DeWolfe.
