One of My Favorites
17 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm sure very few people remember this show, but I do. I was six years old, and my brother was eleven and the 60's was when teenagers and cars ruled. We would hurry and scarf down our dinner so that we could watch every minute. One of my fondest memories, and Brian Kelly helped my transition into Flipper when it aired. I don't know if I can fill ten lines of text because it was so long ago, and only aired for one season. The plot lines were probably over the head of a 6 year old, I just remember the cars, and the racing, it was so cool. The actors seemed to be teens too, probably in their twenties, but they were current. That's probably why we were attracted to it, it was like watching kids from the neighborhood
