Betty White’s TV Show About Celebrity Pet Owners Is Returning—Here’s How to Watch
Betty White, a national treasure, has an impressive career that started way back in the 1930s (!). White, who recently celebrated her 99th birthday, is known for many iconic roles, including Rose in Golden Girls, Sue Ann in The Mary Tyler Moore Show, and Elka in Hot in Cleveland, just to name a few. To ensure that 2021 will be much better than the previous year, the actress is bringing back one of the shows she starred in. In a few weeks, you'll be able to watch The Pet Set, a program that features famous owners and their furry (and scaly) friends.
Hosted by White and produced by her late husband, Allen Ludden, The Pet Set premiered in 1971. The series aired 39 half-hour shows featuring many celebrities, including Mary Tyler Moore, Doris Day, Burt Reynolds, James Brolin, and their pets. White also had experts on the show to talk about pet care and wildlife preservation. During one wild episode, animal behaviorist and author Ralph Helfer brought in a lion named Zamba, who became an audience favorite.
The Pet Set is returning to the small screen on Tuesday, February 23, according to a news release, and will be available on Prime Video, Apple TV, and Google Play. There will also be a DVD release of the episodes that day. To hold you over until the release, check out a memorable clip White recently tweeted that shows Carol Burnette feeding a baby elephant.
