Magazine publisher (Los Angeles-based Tomorrow)  Tom Corbett was one of television's many widowers saddled with the responsibility of running a motherless household.  In this case his son, freckle-faced young Eddie (played by Brandon Cruz, who was seven years old when the series began), did most of the plotting.  Eddie had a special penchant for getting his father romantically involved with prospective brides, which led to many warm and comic moments.  Mrs. Livingston was Tom's dependable, philosophical, but sometimes confused housekeeper; Tina his secretary; and Norman Tinker a mod photographer at the magazine.  Although not a regular on the show, young Jodie Foster appeared from time to time as Eddie's friend, Joey Kelly.  The series was based on a novel by Mark Toby, and had a theme song ("Best Friend") written by pop singer Harry Nilsson.
