The Funny Side was hosted by Gene Kelly and starred five pairs of actors and actresses who were presented as married couples (although only one was married in real life). Each week was an examination of the "funny side" of a potential issue in real-life marriages, such as health, money, sex and the like. Each couple was a stereotype. Kelly also appeared as an actor in the sketches, and there was also a musical aspect with production numbers.
- John Amos and Teresa Graves as the Black couple
- Warren Berlinger and Pat Finley as the blue collar couple
- Dick Clair and Jenna McMahon as the wealthy couple
- Michael Lembeck and Cindy Williams as the teenage couple
- Burt Mustin and Queenie Smith as the elderly couple
The Funny Side received poor Nielsen ratings and was cancelled after less than three months on the air.
