The "Baileys Of Balboa" was portraying the real island of Balboa, not San Francisco. As to the running joke about the "Fish On A Sitck" it was to make fun of the "Chocolate-Dipped Banana On A Stick" shops that opened there on the tiny Balboa Island. Sterling Holloway actually lived on Balboa and did all his own produce shopping at the local open-air market on Balboa Boulevard. There were a few other actors who lived on the same island at that time; all members of the Balboa Bay Club.

I worked in a local restaurant that catered to him, as well as Gary Moore, John Wayne and Edgar Buchannon and Peter Lorrie's brother, whose name escapes me at the moment.

Another show that used Balboa Island as a backdrop was "Mr. Nice", which lasted only a couple of months as I remember it.
