We all wanted to be Cuffy.
9 April 1999 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

Viewed this program when originally aired in the 50's. We all wanted to be Cuffy, Capt. Gallant's waif/son? Fuzzy Knight played the stumbling, bumbling sidekick. It was just one of the many 50's children programs where a cleancut looked-up-at adult was a wonderful role model. Too bad they're gone now.
