||George Baxter ("Mr. B"), played by Don DeFore
George Baxter is a corporation lawyer and Hazel's employer. George's boss is the blustering, gruff Mr. Griffin. George has been happily married to Dorothy for 9 years when the show opens. He's the father of a son named Harold. George played QB for Yale and was known as 'End Run Baxter'. George loves Hazel's cooking but she often denies him dessert when she wants to bend him to her will. George has a snobbish sister Deirdre who visits the Baxters occasionally and takes umbrage at Hazel's casual familiarity and hominess.
