The series centered on Connie Brooks, a smart, sharp-witted, lovable English teacher at fictional Madison High School.

Gale Gordon, the master of radio's most impressive slow burn, is her fastidious foil, Principal Osgood Conklin. While haunting the Madison High hallways in search of one Philip Boynton - a tongue-tied biology teacher who seems more interested in the doings of his pet frog than in amorous advances - Miss Brooks meets with conniving coworkers, addled athletes, wide-eyed girls, and the feckless flatterer Walter Denton.
