1970's Memories
1 July 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I remember this show used to play on CTV (re-runs?) on Saturday mornings in the 1970's. As kids we used to get up early Saturday morning to watch the CBC-CTV morning lineup of cartoons and other children's fair. (We had two channels in non-cable Saskatchewan in the 70's), of which this was one of the highlights. It was an enjoyable family show where typically one or more of the family were menaced by storms, sickness or some sort of wild cat. Too bad it only lasted one season.

There is not too much else I can say about the show as most of the story lines have faded from memory. I still remember Chris Wiggins as a standout and its always enjoyable to see him especially today. Its too bad there is not more programming like this for young kids. Also it seems like there were more than 10 episodes?
