    I love some of the gentle lessons 'My Three Sons' used to impart while making us laugh. This episode was no exception. I loved the old crotchety Dr who used "Old Fashioned" methods. I wouldn't mind trying that Mustard Plaster next time I get a Chest Cold.

    The old saying "Don't Judge A Book By It's Cover" sure comes into play here.

    I love where Robbie goes from wanting a "new modern" Dr to recommending Dr Osbourne to his friends.

    These are the best types of stories.moreless

    • Uncle Charley delights in the old-fashioned mustard plaster that Dr. Osborne sees fit to prescribe for Robbie's chest infection.

    • Gil Clark as the Delivery Boy and Robert Broyles as Mr. Dawson appear uncredited.

    • Leon Ames, the son of Russian immigrants was President of Screen Actors Guild (1957-1958). Until his death in 1993 (Aged 90), he owned Ford car dealerships in Studio City and Encino, California. Although having had a long career in the movies he is possibly best known as a co-star of the "Mister Ed" series (1961-66), in the first two of its last three years on CBS following the death of Larry Keating (1897-1963) as co-star.

    • The baby girl of Robbie and Katie's friends in this episode (named "Cheryl"), was actually portrayed by a boy named Mathew Sullivan who is now deceased. Mathew and his twin brother Michael were born in June of 1968 and as newborn babies they auditioned for some part but did not get it. A few weeks later the show called back and remembered that one of the twins was a bald-headed baby, and asked if he still
      was. Evidently the part called for that.(Thanks to Dave Fears for providing this information about his late brother-in-law who was tragically murdered several years ago by a stranger in Oceanside, California. Dave says that for trivia sake, it would perhaps interest those fans of the show to know that the "girl" baby was actually not! He thinks Matt would have loved that. He is married to Mathew's sister).
