Storyline

During his honeymoon, the irrepressible Larry Burton is dragged off into the jungle by a large-sized male baboon and is presumed dead - eaten by apes. However, defying all odds, Larry survives and, after many comic-strip-type adventures, returns home to re-establish himself as head of the household - little realising that his wife, Sally, has married the staid and conservative Boyd Flatt during the intervening ten years, and that she is now the mother of a bright and lively nine year old daughter. Larry's return home causes considerable upheaval and consternation for the family - not least being his subsequent attempts to woo a reluctant Gabriella, his former sister-in-law, who had taken a distinct dislike to him prior to his disappearance and is still definitely opposed to the idea of getting to know Larry on a more intimate basis.

Another fine example of Networks lack of patience during the 90s
11 September 2000 | by See all my reviews

This was a hilarious show. They had a basic plot and storyline and just let Bronson Pinchot loose, doing whatever that madman felt like doing. Unfortunately, like far too many very promising shows during this time, since it didn't show IMMEDIATE Neilson ratings success the Network cancelled it within its first month. A shame, this show could very easily have been continuing to run today if the execs had given it a chance to really be seen.
