Storyline

O.K. Crackerby is a rough-and-tumble man from Oklahoma who is also the richest man in the world. But because he lacks the "social graces," high-society rejects him. To improve himself and his children, he hires St. John Quincy, an unemployed Harvard graduate, as a tutor. St. John's girlfriend Susan and Slim is O.K.'s friend. O.K. and St. John are constantly arguing among themselves but stand together to fight the social prejudices of the "upper class." Written by J.E. McKillop <jmckillo@notes.cc.bellcore.com>

Not your basic Sit-Com
4 August 2001 | by (Sacramento, CA) – See all my reviews

Burl Ives was always a delight to watch. Even in a dog of a wannabe sit-com like this one about a wealthy man who detests pretension but hires a erstwhile albeit down on his luck Hahvahd school tie to advise him on the ways of the haves (as opposed to the have-nots). The resemblances to Moliere's The Bourgeois Gentilhomme are to be expected but Crackerby (a play on the term, 'cracker,' for a red-neck) only wants to know what they know and doesn't give a rat's nose if he impresses anyone. In one episode, he bankrolls the local symphony, getting a crackerjack conductor and does some serious trading to get a first rate orchestra together. However, the night of the performance, he disdains attending remarking, "I only listen to Country and Western." It was a fun, although short-lived show that didn't take itself too seriously and every once in a while, had a bit of content far beyond today's sit-coms where the cast sits around making stupid remarks spotted with even more stupid facial expressions to the tune of canned laughter.
