Storyline

The Hathaway family consisted of two humans, Elinore and Walter, and three chimps, the Marquis Chimps. Elinore treated them like children and also served as a booking agent for the trio in their show biz act. Walter, a real estate agent, had mixed emotions about this arrangement wondering if his wife thought more of the chimps than him. The neighbors also had problems with the "children." Written by J.E. McKillop <jack-mckillop@worldnet.att.net>

A forgotten gem of TV's slightly tarnished age
16 March 1999 | by willie-14See all my reviews

I had totally forgotten this show which I used to watch as a child until word of Peggy Cass's death a few days ago made me think of it again. I remember the enjoyment of seeing the Marquis Chimps do their thing weekly, but wonder how hard it must have been for Ms. Cass and Mr. Weston to film with notorious upstagers each week!
