I remember "My Three Sons", and I vividly remember the TV version of "The Ghost And Mrs. Muir".. SO, why don't I remember this oh so cute TV show which would also have been appealing to children of my age? My only possible answer is that perhaps it aired in the same time slot as one of the two above, which share characteristics with "Daisies".
Whatever, I am happy to say that at the ripe old age of late 30 something, I have discovered a thoroughly enjoyable cute little show. Luckily, I have the pleasure of viewing it nightly on the new cable/ satellite station of TurnerSouth. It is a nice change from the all too familiar Nick At Night roundup. Everything in the TV version of the movie is more appealing, in my opinion. The children are nicer, less obnoxious, the mother is more believable, more human and less of an actress playing a part, and the dad is just downright lovable. Toss in their English Sheepdog, and I think this was a perfectly conceived series. Why did it have such a short run? Hopefully, someone a bit older than I am can help me out with this one.
IF you have a satellite ,or live in an area where cable is running TurnerSouth, please stay up late and check this cute show out.
