I adored this show when I was a little kid. Contrary to the review by
"Robert Morgan", I recall that Boomer didn't look anything like Benji, but
was actually a rather large, shaggy mongrel. I clearly remember an
intro/opening credits with this large dog placing mail in a mailbox and
raising the red "collect" flag on the side, and a Benji sized dog couldn't
do that. I was 6 years old when the show was on though, so it's possible
This show did borrow the premise of Benji (which I also loved), involving a very bright dog who goes around helping people. It capitalized on the popularity of "smarter than the average dog" shows, and was great for parents to watch with their children, to learn about compassion and humanize animals a little bit, hopefully teaching children that animals deserve our respect and love.

Watched this as a kid, am Dutch, and I remember I loved this series, I
must have been around twelve years old at that time. And matlock-6, you
were right about the intro, mailbox etc. , most I remember about the
intro was Boomer putting his paws on a fence and looking underneath it,
was so cute. Am over 40 now, own my second dog, wonderful animals. Just
watched a "Here's Boomer" series, and brought tears in my eyes, maybe
sentiment, not sure, but I miss things like this in the world.
i am just surprised they only made 20 series of this, in my mind it was much more, could be the impact it had in me.
Anyways, without any spoiler about it, Boomer (Johhny was his real name), his stunt double was named Boomer (Wiki) , you're in my heart forever, me and I think many more.
