The ABC sitcom debuted on September 8, 1966, so in honor of its 50th anniversary, I'm featuring its first episode (in which Ann Marie meets Donald Hollinger), a 1967 episode with guest star Ethel Merman, and a 2003 Archive of American Television interview with Marlo Thomas, who discusses the series.

During her recent appearance on CBS Sunday Morning, she visited her Funny Girl dressing room at the Winter Garden Theatre (which now belongs to School of Rock's Sierra Boggess) - and check out her duet of "Anything You Can Do" with Melissa McCarthy, which appears on her new album, Encore: Movie Partners Sing Broadway.
