Our misfit has found a home--George..
6 March 2002 | by See all my reviews

Filmed by the CTV in 1972 this TV series begins where the film of the same name ends. The stories revolve around the antics of a 250 pound St Bernard, who always gets into mischief in the Swiss Alpine town in which he lives. His owner, Jim Hunter (Marshal Thompson), runs a local air plane charter.

Jim's best friend, played by Jack Mulanney, is his mechanic, who is not very suave with the ladies. He ends up getting into as much trouble as George does.

Frau Gerber is Jim's elderly, German housekeeper, who owns a thick accent and a motorbike, which she rides around town like a maniac on. Aunt Helga (Trudy Young) lives down the road and helps out at Jim's office. Helga is the guardian of her 7 yr old nephew, Freddie (Volker Stewart).

The plot lines are simple but lots of fun to watch again (I finally got them on DVD). The scenery is breathtaking. Most of the stories hinge around George and the young boy, Freddie. Often George follows him to school and waits for him until school is finished.

One episode features a stunning Zsa Zsa Gabor. In this episode her little dog and George fall in love. Many mishaps occur and George ends up in Zsa Zsa's bathtub.

This is a Canadian classic with many zany laughs! There were 26 episodes produced- all of which were released on a 2 DVD set in Germany through Pidax Serien Klassiker.

The theme song is very appropriate and catchy.
