Man, I remember when Gale Gordon guest starred as Mr. Mooney -- he must have been close to 100, and looked it (OK, I'm exaggerating, but you get the idea). I couldn't believe that he was still alive. (OT - I read recently that the first Mrs. Wilson from "Dennis the Menace" is still alive, and is around 100 years old. Amazing.)

Talking Hi, Honey, I'm Home

I loved that show. Really took me back because I was born in the '50s and I can remember it being just like that. I felt bad for Mike Duff, the next door neighbor and the only one privy to the Nielsen's secret. He'd work up the nerve to ask Babs (Julie Benz) out, and she'd turn him down. She seemed to love spinning Mike's heart around like a Frisbee, but she'd have been welcome to do the same to me!

Even though Hi Honey I'm Home had a short network run, it was the first sitcom to be shown on a broadcast and cable network. I remember watching a number of episodes, including the one with Gale Gordon. Whenever things went wrong, Honey would always say "Oh pooh!"

If I wanted to be educated I would have watched 60 minutes or CNN.
Exactly, I was in high school when this show was on, but I loved it because it blended the corniness of the classic comedy shows with a semi-real family. I always liked classic sitcoms because they were simple, and just funny. Sure it was silly, but that was the point. My life was too serious and this was my way of having a good laugh.

I remember the episode where the father is getting upset because he is turning a year older. They throw him a party but he was distraught. It wasn't till his friend Grampa Munster visits and they discuss how life has changed that makes everything better.

I mean I wouldn't mind if my favorite tv family were to just drop by for a visit and discuss the children and work.

I just got in the whole thing and I have watched the first three episodes so far. It is a lot better than I thought it would be. Honey gets preety annoying with the "I'll get it" line, but I guess that is the point. The jokes are corny, but I think they are suppose to be. Babs is good, she doesn't have many speaking lines, but she doesn't need to , "Chuckie" is kind of a pointless character, he is in the least amount. They make Lloyd sound stupid and a wimp, but I didn't really like that. Overall I would call it a 6/10. I think they tried hard on it. I would have loved to see a GI episode of the show, to bad that never happened. So far it was referenced to in two of the three I saw.

Did you, by any chance, get the unaired episodes? I'd love to see them!

I am not sure which ones are what, there weren't titles, but I got 13 episodes total if that helps any. Dwayne Hickman is in the 13th episode

hmm, I will be on the lookout for that. I wonder what classic TV actors guest started on them?

The original pilot was shown during Nicks 20th birthday in 1999. It had AJ McLean as Skunk. And the opening theme song was slightly different. I wish I had more episodes the only one I know I still have is the one where Honey gets kidnapped and then gets all those security devices.

Default There were only 13 episodes...

...of the series produced in 1991 and '92, and shown exclusively on Nickelodeon (the first six also appeared on ABC in the summer of '91). VIACOM owns the rights to the show, and if they ever appear in an "official" DVD box set, it'll be a miracle.

Make no mistake, "HI HONEY, I'M HOME" was pretty good, but who remembers it today????
