Default Who has seen “My World And Welcome to It”?

My World And Welcome to It was an NBC comedy based on the works of American humorist James Thurber. It starred William Windom as a magazine cartoonist (based on Thurber), Joan Hotchkis as his wife, and Lisa Gerritsen as his daughter. It combined live action and animation. Despite Windom winning an Emmy as Best Comedy actor, the series was cancelled after one season (1969-70).

My guess is that the humor was too wry and highbrow to appeal to a large audience (or so the NBC execs thought). Maybe if it had debuted after the “rural purge”, the network would have stuck with it longer.
