Really Old Sitcom Holds Up Well
22 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw a few episodes of this long-forgotten series on YouTube and I must say, they hold up quite well. Originally filmed starting in 1950 by Roland Reed Productions at the Hal Roach Studios, this charming antique top-stars real-life husband-and-wife team Stu and June Erwin in a breezy domestic sitcom. Shelia James (Dobie Gillis) has a featured part here and she gets a lot of the good lines. The series ran for five seasons, but has a very unique history in that the entire fourth season consisted of repeats from past seasons! The episodes I saw on YouTube must be the earlier ones as they had no laugh track. Apparently only the final season employed this device. The production is slick and also features Willie Best (My Little Margie) as the family handyman. I must say that his character, though far from being enlightened, is treated with respect in the scripts, as it was when Mr. Best was on My Little Margie. (The two shows were filmed at the same studio by the same producers). This show was funny, well-written and directed, and all-in-all is an undeservedly forgotten piece of our TV heritage. With 130 episodes produced, I would like to see more of these shown.
