  • The boy who had to go to the bathroom in this episode

    I was only 7 years old in 1956 when this episode was made. I played the part of Timmy, the boy who was one of the adopted kids in the show. It was a live TV show, so I remember my dad telling me that I cannot make any mistakes with my dialogue, because we could not re-take the shot. I still remember how tense it was and how we had to move around the set quickly because it was live TV. I guess I was a part of TV history that I had no idea I would be in 2014. This story was patterned after Roy Rogers and Dale Evans real life family of adopted children. They had many adopt children that they raised.
