My Friend Tony was a friend for all!
20 July 2004 | by (California) – See all my reviews

A young man comes to America and goes to live with an elderly man (James Whitmore). The humor, though probably out-dated by today's standards) was fresh and very funny when the show was new. The escapades of the young, sweet and helpless Tony ... as he struggled to do everything right and the "American Way" had him in more scrapes than out. Think of "I Love Lucy" with Tony as Lucy and you have "My Friend Tony."

I remember this series and how much I loved it. Though not on for long, Enzo captured many a young American girl's heart with his portrayal of Tony.

His smiling face appeared in every teen magazine on the newsstand and it was a sad day when the series ended and Enzo when back to Italy.
