Better than the original APPLE DUMPLING GANG movies.
I enjoyed this forgotten 6 episode sitcom because of the cast, chemistry, and the different path it took. Tim and Geoffrey added a different nuance for their characters. Where Conway and Knots had their cowardly and blundering shtick; Lewis and Thomerson conveyed a bit of menace along with their chemistry of comedy. The plots focused less on the orphans and more on the rest of the cast. I never cared for the movies (APPLE DUMPLING GANG and sequels). I only saw 3 episodes, but I am looking for the whole series on some format to watch and covet. There are several very short TV shows (LEG MEN) forgotten by the world, but cherished by me. Barry Van Dyke and Janis Paige helped to make this show memorable! On the IMDb site very little information is found. On WIKIPEDIA the show is barely mentioned. I do remain hopeful that all 6 episodes will see the light of day in some delivery system.
