Remembering two long forgotten TV shows...

Just finished watching episodes of two of my all time favorite TV shows, both very short-lived: It's a Man's World (1962-63) and The Richard Boone Show (1963-64). I was particularly affected when It's a Man's World was canceled in mid-season. The show centered on four boys living on a houseboat docked near a small, Waltons-like town. As a 15 year-old, I greatly identified with the coming of age plots.

Henry Mancini scored Boone's anthology series.


[I was perusing my overly large VHS collection, and almost forgot I had these video gems.]
