Hank aired from September 1965 until September 1966 on NBC.
Dick Kallman, a promising young Broadway and Hollywood comic of the 1950's and 1960's who never quite made it to major stardom, was showcased in this single-season campus comedy. He played Hank Dearborn, a resourceful young man determined to get a college education despite his lack of funds or family support ( his parents had been killed in a car accident when he was 15 leaving him to support his baby sister Tina, played by Katie Sweet). Hank simply "dropped in" to classes at Western State University, filling the seats of students he knew would be absent, and wearing a variety of disguises.
To support himself and Tina, he engaged in a number of moneymaking schemes, including running a campus laundry service, a watch and shoe repair shop, a dating agency, etc. He was always one step ahead of Dr. Royal( Howard St. John), the register, who was bent on tracking down the campus phantom. Just about everyone else was in on the secret , however, including Doris ( Linda Foster), Hank's girlfriend and Dr. Royal's daughter; Prof McKillup( Lloyd Corrigan), and Franny ( Kelly Jean Peters), Tina's baby-sitter. The Track Coach, Ossie Weiss ( Dabbs Greer), after seeing Hank sprint to classes, wanted him to join the track team.
Dick Kallman , the young actor who starred as Hank was murdered at the age of 47 in 1980.
