Series Info

Early-'60s dysfunctional-family humor, narrated by the (now-adult) younger son, `Wonder Years'-style. The dysfunction comes naturally when Mom is obsessed with Jackie Kennedy and Dad really enjoys being a dentist (it's his hobby as well as his job). As for 11-year-old Oliver, he's the `class clown' whose hero happens to be comic Lenny Bruce.
