This was my first (of many now) favorite new show that was canceled way too early in its life. In a world of predictable half hour comedies this one stood out as quirky and fun. Many of the aspects that made it fresh would now be considered old hat; mixed live action and animated scenes, warmly critical views on other family members and eccentric main character, but at the time it was on these were all new and surprising. A show that dared to take a risk that had heart and humor. If you like the writings and drawings of James Thurber you would have loved this show and maybe someday it will be shown again on a program like “Brilliant but Cancelled”.
