cute show
25 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember this show. I was about 10 years old at the time and we were stationed in Pensacola, Florida at the naval air station at Saufley Field. I use to watch this show and I remember liking it. I didn't realize it only lasted 1 season. The only show I remember had something to do with a neighbor's car being accidentally painted the wrong color, then painted back again only to be done a 3rd time because the 2nd job was too cheaply done. I can still remember the neighbor complaining to Mr. Wesson outside the garage about the situation. We loved watching the chimps perform in the show. Another show we watched about this time was "Mckeever and the Colonel" a comedy about a military school. This too was a 1 season show. Oh well when your 10 you enjoy the simple things. I still remember these shows to this day.
