Storyline

Jackie Cooper played Hennesey, a Navy doctor in an onshore office. Abby Dalton, very young and beautiful then, played his blonde yeoman/secretary/nurse. She had a crush on Hennesey but he maintained his professional dignity. Much of the series was about his gradually warming up to her interest until they were married in the final episode. Neither a drama nor a comedy, it was mostly a character study. The third regular character was a beefy Navy seaman who aspired to become an astronaut until Hennesey found he had an inner-ear defect & was ineligible. Written by Sean Fox <mailcall@kiva.net>

Almost 50 years later, "Hennesey" would still be great
4 April 2007 | by (Sullivan County, PA) – See all my reviews

Everyone on this message board has such specific memories of "Hennesey." All I remember is that it was one terrific program. Apparently it had broad appeal, because I can remember my mother, in her late 40s, and I, in my early 20s, both sitting down to watch it and enjoying it tremendously. Probably Abby Dalton had a lot to do with a young man's attraction to it. I wish it would be brought out on DVD -- I would be first in line to buy it -- or that TV Land would run it. I do remember James Komack as the wacky dentist, and the gravel-voiced Roscoe Karns. I wish I could remember the theme music, since so many here have praised it. One episode does stick in my mind, perhaps because I faced the draft at the time: A young sailor was a draftee, and he caused some kind of trouble, or got into some kind of trouble. That impressed me, because by that time the other armed services were not drafting, except in rare instances of not meeting their recruitment quotas. Draftees all went to the Army.
