Who's the dish with the kid? She's a knockout in that dress--wow!


Is that kid Clint Howard?

Listener Kliph

Hey that totally IS Clint Howard!!! Didn't even notice.

brain hormone

He's not listed on IMDB as in the show, but that's him.


"This is tranya. I hope you relish it as much as I."


- "I have no idea why this sitcom has been left in the ditch of forgotten television" -

I hate to break it to ya, but its not really that funny, putting the novelty aside, which probably explains it.

Listener Kliph

Really, James? That's the reason? Have you ever watched a sitcom from 1965? You truly believe that Gomer Pyle, Bewitched, Gilligan's Island, The Beverly Hillbillies and My Favorite Martian are famous because they're hilarious?

Jack Soo's distaff chess opponent left way too soon. She can pin my bishop anytime.

Other than seeing him in the scene of some movie in which Soo was singing a song with some other Asian actors about chop suey (I wish I were making this up), my only experience with his work had been in Barney Miller. Thanks for this chunk of the lost Sooeuvre!

Listener Rick

That has to be Clint Howard even though IMDB doesn't list it. Despite being kind of dated, that was a nice dialogue between Clint and Tony.


It was the mid-1960s, when offensive Asian stereotypes were still rampant in pop culture. Jack Soo deserves credit for being a genuinely funny, non-stereotypical comic actor. And you gotta love his character's name, one of the greatest I've ever come across: Rocky Sin.


That was funny. Great dialogue. "President Johnson, Sandy Coufax and Gomez". I L'dOL.


Well, hate to break it to you, but Soo plays Franciosa's valet, or as they used to call them, "Chinese house boy." Not exactly roommates, but I admit it was new for the time (with a bow to Jack Benny and Rochester).


And who could forget Hop Sing, the comic stereotype from Bonanza. At least it wasn't played as racist as Mickey Rooney's character in "Breakfast at Tiffany's."


People seem to really hate breaking it to me.

Is Clint's mom Elizabeth Montgomery with a brunette flip?


Definitely Clint Howard, minus the voice overdub. :LMAO:
