{{Sitcom}} starring Eve Arden which ran on Creator/{{CBS}} radio (1948-57) and television (1952-56). The title character is Connie Brooks, a benevolent, wisecracking English teacher at Madison High School who deals with her surrounding cast of characters including her overbearing principal Osgood Conklin, her cheerful but not-so-studious pupil Walter Denton, her landlady Mrs. Davis, and her desired love interest, biology teacher Philip Boynton.

----
This show provides examples of:
* AbsentMindedProfessor: Mr. Boynton
* BettyAndVeronica: Miss Enright was another, more glamorous English teacher who competed with Miss Brooks for Boynton's affection.
* BookDumb: Walter
* CatchPhrase: Walter's "Hiya, Miss Brooks!", Conklin's "...now GO" when trying to get rid of someone.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Mrs. Davis. She sometimes forgets what she's saying in the middle of a sentence.
* CordonBleughChef: Mrs. Davis is creative with her recipes.
* DamnedByFaintPraise: A ''Snap'' magazine reporter "compliments" Miss Brooks' clothes: "That's a very nice suit...One can tell at a glance that it's worn you for years."
* DeadpanSnarker: Miss Brooks is one of the queens of this trope, as are many of Eve Arden's characters in other works.
* DeanBitterman: Mr. Conklin
* DelayedReaction: Mr. Conklin does this often for comedic effect.
* DontExplainTheJoke: Mr. Boynton tells terrible jokes, sometimes he has to do this to find the humor to begin with.
* DreamSequence: Usually with Brooks dreaming about Boynton sweeping her off her feet or in some magical fairy tale, then the alarm clock ruins it all.
* DumbJock [=/=] DumbMuscle: Stretch Snodgrass
* EvenTheGuysWantHim: Walter has at least once said Mr. Boynton is "tall, dark, handsome..." as well as "Boy, is he good looking!"
* HighSchool
* HotScientist: Biology teacher Philip Boynton.
* {{Jingle}}: The show's sponsors had some pretty catchy ones:
** "Brush your teeth with Colgate/Colgate dental cream/It cleans your breath (what a toothpaste)/While it cleans your teeth."
** "Dream girl, dream girl/Beautiful Luster Cream girl/You owe your crowning glory to/A Luster Cream shampoo." (This one was set to the tune of "Toyland" from ''Theatre/BabesInToyland''.)
* LargeHam: Mr. Conklin
* LastNameBasis: Brooks, Boynton, and Conklin always address each other formally, even outside of school.
* LongList: Usually when Mrs. Davis describes recipe ingredients.
* TheMovie: in 1956
* NoIndoorVoice: Mr. Conklin
* ObliviousToLove: Mr. Boynton
* TheOtherDarrin: Jeff Chandler played Mr. Boynton in the first few radio seasons, then was replaced by Robert Rockwell on both radio and TV.
* {{Retool}}: In the fourth season of the TV series, Madison High was razed to make room for a freeway, Miss Brooks and Mr. Conklin went to work for a private school, and Walter and Harriet disappeared from the show along with Mr. Boynton (although the latter would [[TheBusCameBack eventually return]]).
* RunningGag: many, including Mr. Conklin's [[SneezeOfDoom huge sneezes]] and the 'glug' greeting of Boynton's pet frog [=McDougal=]. Miss Brooks' car was always in the shop (see WomenDrivers for the reason of the week).
* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: Walter, which makes him sound much more intelligent than he really is.
* SneezeOfDoom: Mr. Conklin has some whoppers. The TV version of the sneezes had powerful fans blow objects all over the set.
* SoundToScreenAdaptation
* TwoTeacherSchool: Brooks and Boynton; there was also Brooks' rival Miss Enright and occasional visits from other teachers.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Shirley Booth and Creator/LucilleBall were considered for the role of Miss Brooks before it was finally given to Eve Arden.
* WithThisRing: The movie ends with Boynton finally proposing to Brooks.
* WomenDrivers: Miss Brooks' car is always broken down or damaged in some way, forcing her to take lifts in [[TheAllegedCar Walter's jalopy]]. She is portrayed as someone who doesn't pay the best attention on the road, sometimes barely missing pedestrians by swerving and hitting something on the side of the road.
