TV Spankings: Topper

video

Have you ever seen a ghost being spanked? Neither had I until I saw this clip from an early 1950s television series called Topper. Quite what Anne Jeffreys, the "ghostess with the mostest" had done to deserve going across real-life husband Robert Sterling's knee is lost in the mists of time, but it is an amusing clip.

Thanks for posting this. I've always heard about this scene, but could never find it anywhere. Being 60+ yrs., I used to watch Topper as a kid.

I remember scene when it aired on television in the 1950's. The reason Marion Kirby received a spanking was that in prior scenes Henrietta Topper, Cosmos wife was entertaing some women friends in the living room of their home. Marion decided to play a little trick on Henrietta by playing with some stuffed toy dogs dancing around on the floor, and scaring the women since Marion could not be seen by any of the women including Henrietta. As quick as they appear, they disappear with Marion going thru the front door and handing them to Topper as he is about to enter the house. The next scene shows Topper entering the house holding the stuffed animals perplexed by what has happened due to the reaction of the women. George Kirby is most upset with Marion for what she did to Topper and Henrietta and in the next scene as he is standing in the backyard patio Marion struts by enjoying what she has done. George so upset with her decides at once to take her over his knee and give her a sound spanking which is what is shown. I found a web-site several years back that in reality with trick camera work, Ann Jefferies as Marion Kirby never was truly spanked and that the kicking scene was her lying on a table and not across her real life husband Robert Sterling who was George Kirby. But even back in the 1950's they could do great camera work. What is interesting about the Topper Show was that Ann Jefferies and Robert Sterling were married in real life and were very happily married.

First, I need to correct the spelling of Miss Jefferys' name though I have seen it as Jefferies, in reality it was Jefferys. Sorry for the mistake on my part. I would like to comment on the scene that followed Marion's spanking. I loved the fact that even though in real life she was not spanked as mentioned in my previous comments she truly acts like she received a hard spanking by rubbing her hands on the spot where her husband spanked her. And after George offered the pillow to sit on, she reacted when she tried to sit on the pillow that her bottom was still very sore from the spanking. Her facial and body actions as well as her groan reflect that she is great actress. I believe though not shown in this clip, that part of the scene with Cosmos, Marian and George that George confirms to Cosmos who suspects something has happened that indeed he has given Marion a sound spanking for what she did to George and Marietta.
