Exceptional Seventies Story on Child's Self Confidence
4 April 2004 | by See all my reviews

And where else can you catch seventies juvenile powerhouses Lance Kerwin and Ike Eisenmann, as well as Sparky Marcus, all in a program together.

Eisenmann's voice hadn't changed yet, he was that young. I do so recall his attempts at driving away threatening forces with his robotic talk and he would close his mouth and blow out his cheeks.

He thought he ran off a bully when in fact Kerwin was standing behind him with a hockey stick.

An injured pet crow turns the tide of the story, erasing denial and bringing about confrontations with Jim Backus. Was his book legit or was it all a con?

Brilliant childhood angst of the seventies on the same pristine level with Leave It To Beaver.

Eisenmann and Kerwin connected as well as Tony Dow and Jerry Mathers did on the fifties show, which doesn't say much, but they were truly effective.
