John Monroe observes and comments on life, to the bemusement of his sensible wife Ellen (Joan Hotchkis) and intelligent, questioning daughter Lydia (Lisa Gerritsen). Monroe's frequent daydreams and fantasies are usually based on material from New Yorker cartoonist James Thurber. It took several tries before the life and work of James Thurber was successfully adapted into a weekly television series. Two failed pilots, broadcast in 1959 and 1961, eventually led to NBC scheduling My World and Welcome to It on Mondays for the 1969-1970 season. The sitcom starred William Windom as John Monroe [the character based on James Thurber] and featured a combination of live action and animation. Despite many positive reviews, moderate Nielsen ratings led NBC to cancel the series after one season. It then won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Continued Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Comedy Series.Directors: Alan Rafkin, Allen Baron, Danny Arnold, Hal Cooper, James Sheldon, John Rich, Lee Philips, Melville Shavelson, Sheldon Leonard Writers: Bernie Kahn, Bill Manhoff, Carl Kleinschmitt, Danny Arnold, Erik Tarloff, Frank Tarloff, Harvey Bullock, James Thurber, John McGreevey, Laurence Marks, Lila Garrett, Marion Hargrove, Martin Donovan, Melville Shavelson, Paul Wayne, Phil Sharp, R.S.
