A funny, forgotten little show!!
22 January 2006 | by (Parkersburg, West Virginia) – See all my reviews

This was a funny show that had Dom DeLuise as Stanley, a bus driver who lives at home with his mother (Iris), sister (Olive) and brother-in-law (Arthur). His best friend was Bummy, another bus driver. Stanley was the only breadwinner in the family as Olive and Arthur, did not work. In fact, Arthur did not want to work, and was happy to stay at home. Kathleen Freeman played the mother, Beverly Sanders played the sister, Wynn Irwin played the brother-in-law and Jack Knight played the best friend. Everyone was hilarious in their roles and played off of each other beautifully. It was too bad that NBC did not give this show a bit more time to grow and find an audience, but at least this show has found its way onto DVD.
