I remember watching this as a 12-year-old and getting a few laughs out of it, probably because I liked J. Carrol Naish. It's not the worst one-season show that ever was on, especially when I look at what's shown these days. The list of guest stars included a lot of well-known actors and actresses; among them were Richard Deacon, Charles Lane, William Windom, Natalie Schafer, Louis Nye, and Adam West.

When I looked at the list of the top 25 rated shows of the 1960-1961 season, I was rather surprised by how many of them are still popular enough to be airing in reruns today.

Glad that post evoked some nostalgia, Fritz! Thanks for the first-hand assessment of the show. I too have always enjoyed Naish on the big screen.
