Danny Williams, a successful nightclub singer, encounters a variety of difficult or amusing situations in trying to balance his career with his family: his outspoken wife Kathy, teenage daughter Terry from his first marriage, children Russ and Linda, and old-fashioned Uncle Tonoose. Later episodes feature Annette Funicello as an au pair girl. Most episodes conclude with a song by Danny or one of the children. Affection expressed as hostility ("I love you, you little jerk") and ironic humor characterize this show. Written by

Did You Know?
This show and Good Times (1974) have one thing in common. Ironically, they both were two shows that consisted of having a parent being killed off after three seasons as a result of the actress or actor leaving the series. About two decades apart. Jean Hagen as Margaret Williams on this show in 1956, and John Amos as James Evans, Sr. on Good Times in 1976. See more
