Take one wife, calm and level headed. Add a pinch of sarcasm. Fold in one husband, suitably dense. Stir until fully blended. Sprinkle with wisecracking children, a goofy sidekick, a volcanic boss, and an annoying brother-in-law. Cook until half-baked.
Phil Harris, the swaggering, cocky cornball, is in top form. Alice Faye delights as the glamorous-yet-grounded retired movie star. Elliott Lewis lives it up as Frankie Remley, Phil's best friend and provocateur, along with co-stars Walter Tetley, Robert North, Gale Gordon, Jeanine Roos, Ann Whitfield and guest Sheldon Leonard.
Includes previously uncirculated episodes and a Program Guide by Elizabeth McLeod.
