The pilot exteriors were filmed on location in Murphy, and Sonora, California. David Gerber owned the Murphy Hotel, which was used for the series production offices, guest star and temporary lodging for guest directors. Plus, the hotel bar and restaurant were used for interior filming. The exterior ranch house and barn was located three miles from the hotel. The fair building, jumping frog flats, was used to house the ranch set home's two floor interior staircase living room, kitchen and dining room. The other half of the fair building was used for constructing swing sets required for each show-program. This building and surrounding fair ground site was the production construction, paint, effects, property logistical home base and storage lot. Transportation utilized adjacent parking areas for vehicle repair, storage for Generator trucks, and company 5-tons. See more »
I admit, I loved this show because I loved the original musical, but I was sad to see it go away to be kept in some dust-covered bin in a Hollywood storage vault! Regardless of all my friends teasing me because they thought it was a "corny show", I couldn't wait to see each episode! (I was raised by my grandparents so perhaps that's why I've always been drawn to the more reserved, wholesome, and yes, sometimes "corny" stuff.) I wish some studio exec would recognize that there are plenty of networks out there now (ie: Hallmark, ABC Family, Nic....) that have the perfect format for shows like this. If there had been more than just the "Big three" networks around when the show was produced, it would have had a better chance. But it's sad to think of it wasting away when it could be entertaining and influencing a new (and not-so-new) audience.
