This whimsical situation comedy from CBS featured successful child psychologist Dr Thomas Wilson (Steve Dunne) and his family.

At the office, he spoke with the wisdom of Solomon as he resolved family problems that were causing aggravation and suffering to the many parents who sought his services.

At home, however, it was a completely different story. All the good judgment and analytical skills that had made him so proficient at his profession deserted him when he tried to cope with his own family.

The short-lived series premiered on 8 January 1955 but was off the air on 2 July.
