That the writers would call the dog the name of Joan's real pet was no coincidence, though. (As a diehard fan, you'll recall that Jack would end his on-the-road programs in the 1940s by saying "Goodnight, Joanie.")
Diehard Jack fan here. Ok, here's my question: on this particular episode (see subject), there is a little girl named "Betty" who tells Jack she won't play stud poker with him anymore and that she has a dog named Topsy. Then I find out that Joan Benny also had a dog named Topsy when she was young, so was Betty played by Joan?
