Childhood memories

I remember seeing this program as a 6 year old back in 1965, and always looked forward to seeing it. On Friday nights, I would watch this, along with "The Flintstones" and "The Addams Family." For some reason, though, I did not see the shows that followed, such as "Honey West." Though my memory is hazy, I remember I enjoyed the show very much as a kid. From what I can gather, this series, based on the Debbie Reynolds film of the same name, seems to have been ABC's answer to "The Beverly Hillbillies," only that we have a teenage protagonist here. I think it reflected ABC's more youthful sensibilities.

Maybe the show might have been corny even by 1965 standards. However, I enjoyed the show very much, and was disappointed when it left the air in 1966. From the little bit I saw of it on YouTube recently, it seems like a sweet show. It certainly seems to be a very family friendly show, and Debbie Watson seems like an appealing performer, so right for such a role.

And, especially these days, there is something really nice about a show such as this one. Tammy, Tammy …
