"Loved That Bob"
24 April 2002 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

"Hold it, I think you're gonna like this one." To really appreciate this show I guess you had to be there, the late '50's I mean. Television was laced with action/ adventure westerns, detective/ private eye shows and screwball comedies. Then there was Love That Bob, a show about a playboy photographer living every mans dream of being surrounded by beautiful models in bathing suits, tight form fitting dresses, high heels .... well you get the picture. Add to this Ann B. Davis who could of been the prototype for Miss Moneypenny in the Bond films as his lovelorn receptionist/ secretary and Nancy Kulp as a geeky naturalist who wanted to commune with Bob. Rosemary DeCamp was wonderful as his sister and Dwayne Hickman was great as his nephew, a teenager with over active glands who wanted nothing more than to follow in his uncles wake and date Bob's model girlfriends. Bob's some time duel roll as Grandpa Collins, an elderly gent who like his grandson was a still flying high himself (in the show he flew his own bi-plane)and had his share of comic adventures with the ladies. Yeah, you had to be there for this one to really get the picture.
