Wes and Tom-Tom are friends going to college and with musician Vern share a houseboat. Wes also watches out for his younger brother Howie and the four of them deal with girls, jobs, and school. Occasionally the boys get serious but more often they use humor to handle situations.
An original concept was used in this series: the end credits rolled over top of a sort of epilogue that tied up the last scene. If you didn't watch the end credits, you would miss the tie-up for what the characters did at fade out and be missing some of the fun. This actually gave an extra minute or so extension - showcasing the genius of the rapid paced editing and score that hallmarked this show. See more »
I just barely remember this show but I do remember I loved it. Four young men living on a houseboat somewhere in New England, two of them brothers. The two other characters were Tom Tom and Vern. Tom Tom (Ted Bessell), read poetry in the cemetery. I remember Vern saying, "Shoot that's the best thing since seedless grapes" or sliced bread, or something like that. I was very disappointed when it went off the air, though sometime later Bessell ended up on "That Girl' and Corbett replaced George Maharis on "Route 66" for a while and even showed up as the original Zephram Cochran on Star Trek. It was a nice story. And if I can remember a short-lived show 40 years after it went off the air, it made an impression.
