Childhood memories
13 July 2002 | by See all my reviews

I remember watching this when I was very young (about 5). It was one of the shows my family would watch together in the evening, with the Waltons. It was a nice, family oriented show.

The only episode I remember is one in which the two young boys find a bottle of whiskey someplace and get drunk.

VERY ahead of its time.
