Default let me tell you about this show, 'treky'....

....it was written and produced by Ray Singer & Dick Chevillat, who wrote VERY FUNNY radio scripts for Phil Harris & Alice Faye between 1947 and 1951.
In fact, one of their "Phil & Alice" scripts was reworked for "IT'S A GREAT LIFE" just before the show went off the air in 1956 (the one about the tonsil operation). Later, they actually rewrote several of their "GREAT LIFE" TV scripts for Lucille Ball ["THE LUCY SHOW"] in 1964-'65, before they went their separate ways professionally. Chevillat then became Jay Sommers' partner in writing virtually every episode of "GREEN ACRES". Singer became one of Lucy's regular contributors as well, penning ANOTHER rewrite of one of his "GREAT LIFE" scripts (the one featuring Laura LaPlante in 1955 became "Lucy and the Lost Star", with Joan Crawford, in 1968).

And the cast was great as well! I can't think of a better trio than William Bishop, Michael O'Shea and Jimmy Dunn, with Frances Bavier as the "smarter" one. I loved the episode where they became extras in a ridiculous low budget science fiction movie featuring Marie Windsor (hamming it up all the way as a "vain" actress who gets what's coming to her at the end!). Oh, there may have been a few "misfires" here and there, but on the whole, it WAS a funny series!

(I liked "The Phil Harris & Alice Faye show" however)
