The first situation comedy is often said to be Sam and Henry which debuted on the Chicago clear-channel station WGN in 1926, and was partially inspired by the notion of bringing the mix of humor and continuity found in comic strips to the young medium of radio.
Traditionally, situation comedies were largely self-contained, in that the characters themselves remained largely static and events in the sitcom resolved themselves by the conclusion of the show.
Probably the most well-known and successful early television sitcom was I Love Lucy, starring Lucille Ball, which is well known because the producer took the step, unusual for its time, of shooting the episodes on film, thereby inventing reruns.

Two high-profile Paramount films did not appear at all, a number of films listed as "no further information on this film could be found" were in existence and readily available, the listing of songs for the musical films was often incomplete, one film appeared out of alphabetical sequence, and there were little factual errors.
