In addition to his unseen wife Martha, George had a neighbor in Los Angeles named Mr. Beasley, who is never seen in Mathnet shows. However, Mr. Beasley appears in cartoon form in the Square One Television (1987) segments with Dirk Niblick, another mathematical detective. The animated Beasley often talks about his unseen neighbor George Frankly, and is voiced by Bob Arbogast, who makes a guest role in Mathnet: The Case of the Missing Air (1988) as radio host Byle Dupe, of whom Mr. Beasley is said to be a fan.

He spent the next 20 years in rock 'n roll... he piles rocks and he eats rolls.

An educational show that I still revere into adulthood
Mathnet which started as a segment of "Square One TV," was a fun & funny adaptation of a familiar police procedural (specifically the 50's cop show, "Dragnet") which employed quality performances and solid writing to teach math concepts. It insulted neither the child nor adult viewer. Many actors who served as regulars and guest stars would pop up giving quality performances in primetime TV and in movies. If I could find DVD's of this series I'd buy them in a heartbeat.
