The big mistake
6 August 2002 | by (Chapel Hill,North Carolina) – See all my reviews

"Me and the Chimp" was without a doubt the worst of all monkey shows-and that includes the pathetic Lancelot Link-Secret Chimp. Even its star Ted Bessell(who was a regular opposite Marlo Thomas on "That Girl")HATED this series,as well as its simian co-star who was in fact very difficult to get along with according to its producer Garry Marshall(who survived this fiasco and went one to do two very successful shows of the grand 70's "Happy Days",and "Laverne and Shirley"). The premise: A dentist's family takes in an escaped lab chimp named Buttons,with predictable results. However,there were several players that go through this series including actress Kami Colter(who plays Bessell's youngest daughter),went right on to star in "The Waltons" after starring in this piece of trash which was suppose to be a children's sitcom,but to no avail. However,Bessell wanted top billing over the chimp,and after that CBS executives pulled the plug that same year. The series produced 12 episodes.
