Less than a year after it was canceled by NBC, the program was replayed on the ABC television network from March-August 1964 as a replacement for "The Sid Caesar Show" (1963) and "Here's Edie" (1963) (a.k.a. The Edie Adams Show).See more »

Dean Jones SINGS (!), 25 June 2017
Author: ( from United States

The only episode I can remember involved a little runaway girl who stowed away on the ship. Dean Jones sang (not bad really!) "Thank Heaven For Little Girls" to her.

Great supporting cast with Jack Albertson as the captain, Harvey Lembeck, Jay C. Flippen, and even Beau Bridges (I knew I'd seen him somewhere before). :-)
