"The People's Choice" was a 1950s sitcom broadcast in the United States by NBC.

"The People's Choice" was the story of an ex-Marine city councillor, Socrates "Sock" Miller, who had frequent run-ins with the city's mayor, John Peoples. These run-ins were aggravated not only due to the fact that Sock disagreed with the Mayor's policies, but that Sock's girlfriend was the mayor's daughter, Mandy. Sock had a pet basset hound, Cleo, whose observations were made audible to the audience (but not the cast). Cleo was voiced by Mary Jane Croft. As the show developed, Sock and Mandy married (secretly at first), Sock completed law school, and then became a real estate agent, while continuing to serve as a city councillor. Dick Wesson appeared as Rollo, a Marine buddy of Sock.
