Storyline

This light and fluffy sitcom changed formats and producers almost every season. Originally it was about widow Doris Martin and her two young sons who left the big city for the quiet and peace of her family's ranch, which was run by her dad Buck and ranchhand Leroy. Later Doris, Buck and sons Billy and Toby moved to San Francisco, where Doris got a job as a secretary to bumbling magazine publisher Michael Nicholson. In Season Three, the Martin family moved into an apartment above the Paluccis' Italian restaurant, and Doris began writing features for Today's World magazine. Finally, the kids, family, Nicholson, the Paluccis' and all other cast members vanished, and Doris became a single staff writer for Today's World, where her new boss was stentatorial-voiced Cy Bennett.

Trivia

Doris Day's contract with CBS to do this series set a record, with Day's production company getting several million dollars in up-front fees. It was negotiated by Martin Melcher, her husband of seventeen years. However, after Melcher died unexpectedly in April of 1968, just five months before the series was to debut, Day said she had no knowledge of ever having signed on to do the show. See more »

There wasn't much of a plot to speak of in this series, but I can recall watching it religiously every week. In retrospect, it was the dazzling good looks and charming personality of Doris that drew an audience. She played a part in the romantic dreams of every young man from the 1940s to the 1980s. Doris had it all; great looks, lovely figure, demurely sexy personality, wonderful singing voice, and a beautifully soft nature with occasional glimpses of a fiery temper. Her eyes were like two spoonsful of the Pacific ocean and her blonde hair and freckles were captivating. I haven't seen much of her since the series ended, but gather that she now runs a hotel in California where only people with pets can be guests. Given her well known love of animals and her generous nature, what else would you expect? I'd like to see her as a guest on the Tonight Show or the Letterman show. There are still a lot of us out here who love the lady and would like to see her one more time.
