I may be wrong, but as I recall this was another "summer replacement" series. I don't think it lasted more than a couple of episodes ...There were the straight-laced and exasperated Mr. Takahishi (Mr. T), the brainless white-girl housekeeper (Tina) and the crazy uncle (Uncle Matsu) who did things like throw cherry blossoms in the toilet while reciting Haiku, among other characters. In the tradition of "Ivan the Terrible," it was shot on what looked like a set about 12 feet in size, for about 50 bucks. LOts of racist stereotypes, bad and pretty boring. The 70s were full of such short-lived garbage -- now with Pat Morita gone (a pretty good actor when given appropriate roles), maybe it will be released in a "best of..." DVD!
