Works as a one-off...
29 December 2005 | by (Here) – See all my reviews

...but I can't see it sustaining much interest as a series. There are too many principal characters (all broad stereotypes) to really develop much affection for any of them.

One exception, however, is James Dunn. Jimmy Dunn seems happy and enthusiastic with his role, which is always a joy to watch. Broad comedy being his forté, he acquits himself well here as the jovial father figure to the group of boys in his charge.

The band itself is pretty standard early-1960s fare, but nothing to really write home about. The title song is catchy, but soon grates a bit. The appearance of a young Stefanie Powers adds some historical interest, but beyond that it's not hard to see why this pilot failed to become a series.

Fans of Bobby Rydell, James Dunn or Stefanie Powers will find this enjoyable, as will aficionados of rare television.
