A Forgotten Jewel From Television's Infancy
15 January 2007 | by possumopossumSee all my reviews

I came across a DVD of four episodes from this fifties show for $7.95. I had almost forgotten this show and how I enjoyed it as a kid when it was in syndication for a brief time back in the mid to late sixties. Leo G. Carroll in the title roll is a perfect foil for the fun-loving spirits of George and Marion Kirby. And speaking of spirits, I think Neal was the only alcoholic dog in history. He sure did love his booze. I've heard of dogs liking beer, but I've never known them to put away a whole case after drinking half a canteen full of gin. That was a hoot! (Love 'ya, Neal, you big dumb mutt!!!). It was his fondness of the drink that got George and Marion killed in the first place. I guess some dogs just never learn.

This show is a forgotten classic, and well worth its weight in gold. You hardly ever see or hear of it any more, and that's too bad. Wish they would put it on Nick at Night or TVLand. Wouldn't mind a few more DVD's either. Great show.
