My World and Welcome To It....1969

This was a short lived series that was ahead of it's time .....this is the third part of a 3 part YouTube post I found that I thought was amusing and interesting.
In part 1&2 the father tries to buy a doll for his daughter on Christmas eve and fails, so he bought her a big flag which she flew and upset the neighborhood Tea Party Patriots...and they come to visit him...

1. I LOVED this show as a kid

This is the first time I have ever seen it mentioned by anyone else besides myself. Thanks for the blast from the past.

2. I loved it too

And was shocked when it was cancelled....but then so was Smothers Brothers that dared to step out of the norm.

3. I see the 'Patriots' haven't changed much. An interesting study in human behavior. I like the family

4. Loved the series

based on James Thurber. I actually met William Windom once. He had a one-man show about James Thurber, and I got to spend a little time with him before the show. Nice guy. Great show.

5. Won the "Best Comedy Series" Emmy after it was canceled.

My young self found that very, very crazy. Windom won an Emmy too.

9. And it deserved it too.

It was way ahead of it's time in the way it was delivered....but I suspect it was how the family was portrayed the pissed off the conservatives in charge....no Leave It To Beaver kind of family at all.
