I believe this show holds the dubious honor of being the first television series to show a married couple sleeping in the same bed. Twin beds (ala The Dick Van Dyke Show) were the norm back then. This was a fun family show for its time and I remember seeing it in color over at my friends house on a giant RCA set they had. Pat Crowley was by far my favorite TV mom. She had a lot of patience! I remember being disappointed when this show was canceled. I always had soft spot for family centered shows. I had two sisters and a brother and we actually got along very well with each other. We did have our share of adventures and we always found a way to find the humor in things. This show depicted this kind of situation very well. I wish we could bring back some of what's good about these kind of shows today.
