George Burns buys an apartment building in Southern California with Mr. Bundy as the building superintendent. Jeff and Wendy Conway are husband and wife tenants; he is an airline pilot and she is a ditz. Jeff's co-pilot is Danny Adams, a young, single, girl-chasing man who is proud of his red and black "little books". George follows Wendy around all day commenting on her activities. She was really a replacement for Gracie Allen, who had retired.Written by

Wonderful early sitcom from the early 60's with George Burns and Connie Stevens
Early sitcoms were much simpler, but the formula for this one was much the same as George Burns used earlier with Gracie Allen where he did what he did best: playing the straight man. Connie Stevens was the ditzie, bubbly, cute, blond and she was great, much like Goldie Hawn a few years later. J. Pat O'Malley (you won't recognize the name but he was a character actor who was in about ever series on from the early 50's to the early 80's) had a major role as the building maintenance man and both Burns and and Stevens played off him. It was a wonderful series that only lasted a couple of years and will never be seen again even on DVD, a shame.
