Standard late 50s-early 60s family sit-com.
9 July 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A pleasant thirty-minute bit of family values. Like all successful TV shows of the era, it included a "real star" in the cast - in this case, Walter Brennan. The show stressed family solidarity and doing the right thing. Each episode contained an understated lesson in life and living.
