Never-married attorney Bentley Gregg took on the task (with help from his "houseboy", Peter) of raising his young niece Kelly, after her parents died in an accident. The job was easier when Kelly was a little girl, but now she's in her teens, and beginning to date and venture into the adult world, while Bentley continues to juggle his career, looking after Kelly, and his own romantic life.

CBS Television presents a hilarious new comedy program starring John Forsythe as a debonair, unmarried man-about-town whose life is uproariously disrupted when he becomes sole guardian of a spirited 13 year old orphaned niece.
Although she never sings in Bachelor Father, Noreen Corcoran (Kelly) released several pop singles during the 1960's. One charted briefly. Corcoran was also a talented dancer who had trained in several forms of dance from the age of 3, yet doesn't dance during the programs run. See more »
I hadn't seen Bachelor Father on TV in probably 45 years until recently a local affiliate cable station started running it on weekdays in the late morning. It's enjoyable, rather amusing and very innocent. No bad language or sexual innuendo. Set in southern California, Bentley Greg (John Forsythe) is a wealthy attorney who resides in his Beverly Hills home with his orphaned niece, Kelly and houseboy, Peter. Most of the plots seem to revolve around seemingly trivial events, but that is more reflective of the 1950's and early 60's before the "sexual revolution" and wide spread drug use became common. Performances by the regular cast members are usually very satisfactory, although sometimes exaggerated to make a point. Episode plots are light-hearted if not particularly memorable, but I enjoy viewing a TV show first broadcast when I was in elementary school.
