"A breath of fresh air!"
24 December 1999 | by TeenieSee all my reviews

This show was truly "a breath of fresh air." At a time when turmoil was beginning to shape things to come in this country, this program was nothing but a barrel of laughs. Joey Bishop's deadpan deliveries were nothing short of hilarious. The times that he did break up on camera were classics. Guy Marks was my all-time favorite sidekick compared to Corbett Monica. One thing that confused me, though - Abby Dalton was pregnant during both seasons, but when the series moved to CBS they identified the child-to-be as their first. I remember her son Matthew David Smith playing the baby in the second season. Anyone know what was up with that? It's still fun to watch on the TV Land network with all the original laughs intact.
