Chief Kanisky... I want you to know it wasn't just just. I mean... Ihave deep emotional feelings for Julie.
You're too *short* for deep emotions.

When this show first aired on the NBC television network, it ended with the logo for Alan Landsburg Productions superimposed against clips from the episode that was ending. However, in 1985, Alan Landsburg Productions was merged into Reeves Entertainment Group, which took over production of this series. The same year, it entered American syndication, with the Reeves Entertainment Group logo replacing the aforementioned one, sometimes cutting off the end of the closing music. See more »
This is one of many shows I used to watch just because it was on, not because I particularly enjoyed it. All these years later I watched a couple episodes just to "check in", and it was pretty much as I'd remembered it. Now, maybe it's just because I watched the three or four episodes that were the exception to the rule, but... didn't that oldest daughter ever have any lines? I saw episodes from Seasons One and Two and it seemed like the middle and younger daughters got all the speaking parts, and the youngest one all the zingers. The blonde oldest girl was very pretty but didn't have much to do, just a "hi Nell" or "bye Dad" and that was it. She might as well not have been there at all. Never could quite figure out what made Nell Carter such a big deal, either... I know she did musicals but her singing voice is like chalk on a blackboard, very nasal. Typical family situation comedy, nothing special.
