Storyline

Set in depression-era Kansas City, this comedy was based around a single hairdresser's unique approach to curing her lonliness: She put an ad in the newspaper and recruited the folks who met her criteria to be her new family. Filling the new positions were con-artist husband Eddie, tap-dancing daughter Anna-Marie, a son known only as 'Junior', and an elderly grandfather. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Love It! This is a fun family series.
8 April 1999 | by See all my reviews

Rue McClannahan fills the Hollyhock home with respondents from an advertisement seeking "individuals to move in and create an atmosphere of an all-American family." The rest is comedy at its best. As American as "Apple Pie." Yum-Yum, you'll love it! There's a line that still comes to mind and makes me laugh even now. Jack Gilford played the blind grandfather of the "family" who was sitting with an open newspaper in front of his face; when he lowers the paper and you see his dark lensed glasses and that impish smile from cheek to cheek, setting up the punch line, he says "The comics just don't smell as funny as they used to." With a shake of the head he lifts the paper up in front of that wonderful face.
