This was a really funny show!
28 August 2006 | by See all my reviews

I was surprised by this show.

It was interesting seeing Jackie Cooper doing a sitcom, and for 50's sitcom fare - it was actually very funny. It made me grin, because you could still see the cherubic face of Mr. Cooper's Our Gang character, who swooned over Ms. Crabtree, their teacher.

Since I've recently begun collecting classic TV on DVD and now have a TON of it, I have obtained a single episode of this series on a DVD collection:

This was an episode where Sock had to stand in as a proxy for a buddy of his still in the service, to get married. Mandy, meanwhile, figured he was marrying someone else. Cleo the basset hound's remarks, and still camera shots were hysterical.

I'd love to find further episodes of this series, but cannot locate any on DVD or VHS - - - Does anyone know where to purchase more of this series?

Thanks-

Rick Marques
