Trivia:
Even though this show was considered a spin off of "Diff'rent Strokes" (1978), the connection between the two shows wasn't explained until a few months after the show premiered. Since both shows were produced by the same company, it was decided to have a plot where Larry Alder and Phillip Drummond (McLean Stevenson and Conrad Bain respectively) were old army buddies from Korea as a way of having the shows cross over and boost the ratings of Hello Larry.See more »

This Diff'rent Strokes Spin-off didn't deserve to die., 26 June 1999
Author: Steve Anderson (steve45rpm@aol.com) from Providence, Rhode Island

This quasi-spin-off of Different Strokes brought well-loved McLean Stevenson back to the airways after his departure from MASH. This was one of the first to ACCURATELY portray a single father's struggles raising two young daughters. It never really developed a following, and the numerous scheduling changes made it difficult to find. This is an ideal candidate for TV Land.
