In the middle of the 80 Bill Cosby was the king of home comedy thanks to his Sitcom Bill Cosby's time, but his power would soon be eclipsed by four mature baptized like gold girls. The cocktail ingredient for this unprecedented success was based on scripting the four personalities so that a comedy works: La Ligona (Blanche, Rue McClanhan), the Smart (Dorothy, Bea Arthur), Lockers (Sophia, Estelle Getty) and the Boba (Rose, Betty White).

With the passage of time, the internationalization of the series highlighted that Betty White, who died last New Year's Eve at 99, was neither remotely silly. When the invention would change the consumption of the show, it had not yet reached practically any home of the country, she Betty had already performed an experimental retransmission in Los Angeles, where she played the waltz of the cheerful widow.

The latter was released in the United States on September 14, 1985. Those granny sweet would go worldwide.

The Making of could have given for another series. Reasons? Estelle had a scenic panic and forgot part of the dialogue, so she wrote the phrases on cards or she did it with a permanent marker on the kitchen table and adjacent objects where they gathered to eat cheesecake; The tablecloths of that table were sometimes settled with the dresses, so there were about 60 pieces behind the refrigerator as a spare; By contract the actresses could be left with several garments, but Rue wore with all and in the daily life of it he looked at some of them.
