Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

A wide-eyed blonde with a permanent smile, baby voice and ditsy but lovable persona, Georgia Engel will forever be remembered as Georgette Baxter, the sweetheart who somehow loved buffoonish anchorman Ted Baxter despite himself, on CBS' "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" from 1972-1977. Although she has continued to be active in TV and on stage, Engel has yet to have a role in as successful a vehicle, although she is often cast in variations of Georgette, a dim bulb with a strong moral center.
