The mayor was a widower and his nephew Butch (David Saber) was his ward. Kathleen Freeman portrayed their housekeeper Marilly who kept mischievous young Butch in line.

The mayor had a secretary named Minnie (Jean Byron) and future star Natalie Wood appeared in several episodes as the mayor’s niece, June.
