Summer Favorite

I, too, have fond memories of this program. I was under the impression that Hey Teacher was actually an unsold pilot for a proposed new series for Dwayne Hickman. In the early and mid-60s CBS frequently aired the pilot episodes it had ordered in a summer anthology. This was a way to recoup at least a part of the cost of making the pilot. I always thought Hey Teacher would have made a great series for CBS. It would have fit in nicely with the network's other family-friendly comedies. In 1964 it was indeed unusual to have male teachers in many elementary schools, thus providing for the comedy set-up in the show. I remember another cast member looking at the teachers' mailboxes in the fictional school, and commenting that someone had "misspelled" the name of the newest teacher (Hickman) as "Mr." instead of "Mrs." The show co-starred Reta Shaw, a noted TV, film, and stage character actress. Her most remembered TV role was as the housekeeper in The Ghost and Mrs. Muir alongside Hope Lange.
