Wes and Tom-Tom are friends going to college and with musician Vern share a houseboat. Wes also watches out for his younger brother Howie and the four of them deal with girls, jobs, and school. Occasionally the boys get serious but more often they use humor to handle situations.
An original concept was used in this series: the end credits rolled over top of a sort of epilogue that tied up the last scene. If you didn't watch the end credits, you would miss the tie-up for what the characters did at fade out and be missing some of the fun. This actually gave an extra minute or so extension - showcasing the genius of the rapid paced editing and score that hallmarked this show. See more »
I really liked this show and it seemed to be cast for success
Four young men live on a houseboat and have serious-comic adventures. It was by far my favorite show of the '62-'63 season but I only remember fragments now. One episode had mishaps of hauling a load of tires cross country where all the tires eventually ended up rolling away down a hill. Another had one of the main characters doing something wrong enough to threaten Glenn Corbett's guardianship of orphaned brother Michael Burns. The four male leads were up and coming faces on TV. They all went onto other TV series but Glen Corbett and Ted Bessell endured the longest. Would love to see these shows again after forty years to see if they compare well to my fond memories.
