Magic Mansion is an American sitcom that broadcast on the AFRTS television network from January 8, 1965, until June 1, 1968. Its weekly programs were televised live before a studio audience. The sitcom was transitional for television because it was one of the last live non-variety show broadcasts and one of the first to use the new medium of videotape. Air Force Staff Sergeants James Mortensen and David Castle created the show for family audiences in the United States Pacific Command. It starred Warren Chaney, Harriett Zorich, Jerry Jacobson, Earle Klay, Dick Hancock and Vincent Rizutto. Sgt. Mortensen produced the sitcom, which was written and directed by US Army Captain Warren Chaney. The music for the show’s theme song was written by Corporal Larry Edisen. A multiple-camera setup format employing three cameras and a studio audience was used during production.
