One of several short-lived sitcoms from the early '60s..., 26 November 2015
Author: (gjw) from Los Angeles, CA

To be honest, it's been so long since I watched this show that I have no idea if it was actually any good, but I remember liking it as a kid.

I also remember this show as one of a number of very short-lived sitcoms, from that same decade, which caught my attention as a youth, but which didn't survive past the first season: Besides "Camp Runamuck" (about a summer camp), there was also "Hank" (about a young guy trying to be a "drop-in" at college, rather than a drop- out), "I'm Dickens, He's Fenster" (about two carpenters, one of them Marty Ingles), "It's About Time" (about two astronauts who end up back in the caveman days), and "McKeever & the Colonel" (about the antics of a young cadet at a military school (which had a "Leave it To Beaver" feel to it).

I'm not sure why these shows stuck in my head as a unit, but if I happen to recall one of them, the other four always come to mind.
