Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The worst day in the life of Mary Richards (Mary Tyler Moore) occurs on the same day that she is nominated for the coveted "Teddy" award. As Mary prepares for the big night, one disaster after another befalls her. By the time she arrives at the banquet, Mary is suffering from a miserable head cold, sporting a horror-movie hairdo, and wearing an ensemble consisting of an ill-fitting robe and a single fuzzy slipper. "Put on a Happy Face" was originally telecast on February 24, 1973.
