Topper was a television series based on the 1930's film series Topper. The thrust of the story is that the sophisticated Cosmo Topper is vice-president of a bank. He is married to the sweet but dumb Henrietta. They live in a house that they bought from the estate of a young couple, George and Marion Kirby, who died after being swept away by an avalanche. Their St. Bernard, Neil, who was unable to rescue them, also died with them. Cosmo finds that his house is haunted by their ghosts and that of their alcoholic St. Bernard. Only Cosmo can see or hear them. The show ran from 1953 to 1955.
