It was cute, as such a novelty item could expect to be. the canned laughter at times was a bit off set... confusing to be quite precise to the point. Celeste Holm was very apt as the mother of the cast, as always a very soft spoken and motherly voice is hers. The casting all around was a novelty item in itself.

It's a nice addition to that feature, but as i repeat, at the risk of sounding redundant, it is simpley a novelty piece. no more.
