From the Perry Mason episode “The Case of the Deadly Toy” (May 16, 1959). Perry and Della are posing as the Streets, a married couple with a young son. Mrs. Barton, the babysitter, has an urgent question: “Do you have television?” And Mason replies, “Of course!”

I love when old television shows have the characters talk about television.

Second old television reference today. The first from Len Deighton's "Horse Under Water", circa 1963, where a cabin cruiser boat is described as being kitted out with an impressive 17" television!

I can see in my mind's eye that slight tilt of the head "Of course".
