For some reason, this short-lived show really imprinted on my psyche. I was only seven when it premiered, but I have always remembered it fondly. I don't remember many specifics, but the whole ambiance remains clear to me.
The one plot I do remember is one where the Colonel decides to keep McKeever out of trouble by making him a Military Policeman. The MP gig does not work out the way the Colonel expected, of course.
Jackie Coogan was great as the sympathetic sarge.
I think the show influenced my whole life; I went to a military school, became an army officer, and am now retired from the service.
