TV's Line Up, Will Never be the Same!

The Courtship of Eddie's Father is an American television sitcom based on the 1963 movie of the same name, which was based on the book written by Mark Toby (edited by Dorothy Wilson). It tells the story of a widower, Tom Corbett (played by Bill Bixby), who is a magazine publisher, and his son, Eddie (played by Brandon Cruz), who believes his father should marry, and manipulates situations surrounding the women his father is interested in. ABC had acquired the rights to the story; the series debuted on September 17, 1969, and was last broadcast on March 1, 1972.

This was a great wonderful show right, right?

  1. I'm not sure I watched it during its run, but I know I saw reruns.
    Hope everything goes well with the setting of your ankle today. We miss you.

  2. I was born to not move.. not to run :)

  3. I love Bill Bixby, but never saw this one.
    Sounds great.

  4. I remember watching reruns of the show.

  5. Ah Bill Bixby. He played a perfect father.

  6. I liked Bill Bixby in THE MAGICIAN, a series no one but me watched. Sigh.

  7. I've never seen it. I don't even recall it in reruns. They just don't make 'em like they used to.

  8. I remember watching this show as a kid (probably in reruns in the mid seventies) and thinking it kinda cool. As an adult (and a connoisseur-cum-student of TV) I believe the show to be well ahead of it's time, as well as one of the smarter sitcoms to ever grace the tube.
