Based on the characters from the MGM hit of the same name, this TV pilot is about one day in the life of the Smith family. At the turn of the twentieth century, the family is throwing a party for a visitor in their neighborhood. Heartaches and laughter ensue.
According to executive producer Alan D. Courtney, the network decided not to option the series because one CBS executive said that he "didn't want anything on his network with an ice wagon rattling down the street". See more »
It was cute, as such a novelty item could expect to be. the canned laughter at times was a bit off set... confusing to be quite precise to the point. Celeste Holm was very apt as the mother of the cast, as always a very soft spoken and motherly voice is hers. The casting all around was a novelty item in itself. As a consumer it would sit on the shelf next to the complete set of The Flinstones or Petticoat Junction. The pilot is featured on the two disk set of the 1944 film version starring judy garland and margaret o'brian. It's a nice addition to that feature, but as i repeat, at the risk of sounding redundant, it is simpley a novelty piece. no more.
