A great after school special!
4 July 2004 | by (Orlando, Fl.) – See all my reviews

This program must have made a real impression on me as a child. I still remember the phrase,"you can do it Duffy Moon!" after all these years. I find myself saying it over and over again especially with my kids. Although I can't recall every detail, I do remember that the plot was about confidence. It ran as an after school special that I watched with my Dad. He was staying at home while he was recovering from multiple injuries from his police squad car crash. I felt a bonding moment that had been frozen in time. The program itself was very cute and very seventies. It starred Lance Kerwin but then again, practically every show back then had him in their cast. I think the message of the show could work for today's young viewers and perhaps a remake could be in order!
