One of the best shows ever!, 13 April 2003
Author: tanipost from Canada

I really loved watching the Hat Squad when it was on. I started watching it because Don Michael Paul(Buddy on the show) is one of my favourite actors. I was truly disappointed when the cancelled it after one year. It was a show that had awesome family values and showed the strength that a family can have with one another even if you aren't related by blood. I hope to see it in reruns someday as I was only smart enough to tape three episodes.
