Celebrate The Birth Of The TV Dinner

For those of you who don’t know a TV dinner is a pre-cooked, frozen dinner made for one person. The term TV dinner dates back to the Swanson Company’s TV Brand Frozen Dinner that first debuted today in 1953.

Swanson’s original 1953 TV Brand Frozen Dinner came in an aluminum foil tray with three sections. The first TV dinner featured turkey, corn bread dressing, gravy, peas, and sweet potatoes all for only 98 cents.

The fourth dessert section wasn’t a part of the Swanson TV dinners until 1960 and the first desserts were fruit cobblers and brownies.

Swanson’s early packaging even featured a picture of a TV set.  By 1955, half of all American homes had a television set. Swanson’s convenient pre-cooked TV dinner allowed people to eat a hot meal on their TV tray table without anyone having to miss his or her favorite television show.
