Bringing Up Buddy- A Fine Romance ***
16 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In the song, "A Fine Romance," there is a line that describes my maiden aunts. This may also best describe "Bringing Up Buddy," a very funny television show that unfortunately didn't last too long.

Frank Aletter plays the orphaned Buddy who is brought up by Aunt Violet and Aunt Iris. Enid Markey and Doro Merande played the aunts in meticulous fashion. They were the embodiment of spinsterhood, who tried to cope with their nephew.

Of course, they did provide plenty of love and guidance along the way for the much harried Buddy.

The opening musical score sounded like we were back in elementary school. Perhaps, this was appropriate as the two spinsters were overly protective of their nephew.
