DVD TV Show Reviews
I was a child in the 70's, but I never saw this show. I
have heard of the title, though, and I'm very familiar with the show's
star (Johnny Whitaker) from his time on "Family Affair" and many other
appearances on TV. I guess I was a little old to watch it in 1973.
The show is a fun kid's show about two boys who take in
a sea monster that has run away from home. It is a nice family
show and anyone should enjoy it, especially families that are looking
for good wholesome fun. There are musical numbers, too; they are
probably a little dated but kids shouldn't know the difference.
There are a few extras: the show's two stars, Whitaker
and Scott Kolden, talk about their start on the show (I didn't know that
Whitaker was a Mormon!). There is also an interview with the
show's writer, Si Rose, who also wrote for other Sid & Marty Krofft
shows. There's something called "Johnny's Jukebox", which is
basically the songs taken out of the shows. There is commentary on
one of the episodes by the two actors. The box says that Sid
Krofft offers commentary, but I didn't see it in the Extra Features
This is nice for any family, or anyone who grew up with
