Susanna Pomeroy was the social director of the luxury liner S.S. Ocean Queen. She spent most of her time in cahoots with her close friend Esmerelda "Nugey" Nugent, operator of the ship's beauty salon, and their alliance confounded the liner's rather stuffy Capt. Huxley. Adding to the captain's frustrations was the ship's steward, an impish little fellow named Cedric. This filmed comedy was subtitled Oh Susanna, and that was the title it later adopted when it went into syndication.

Network reruns of this series appeared weekdays on ABC from April 1959 to September 1961.
