The guest star cast for the series was similar to The Love Boat/Fantasy Island, with different celebrities each week being the featured sweepstake winner. Written by U.N. Owen

this show made a big impression on me
30 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was just about 8 when this show came on the air. It was only about 6 or seven episodes but for some reason the title song got into my brain and made an impression. Something about "Don't be afraid to dream" and I took it to heart , even today. I don't remember much about the show but I remember the premise of it. I just wish that for some weird reason, somebody would release it but I really doubt it. Or at least a recording of the song. If anybody out there managed to taped it , probably on Beta back in the 70's , maybe you could release it on You tube or something. I would just love to see this show once again.What I remember about the lesson that I got from the show is that money alone cannot make you happy .
