This ABC comedy featured a gang of young construction workers out to have a good time, on the job and off.
Lucy (Susan Buckner) was the only woman on the crew, and just “one of the guys”. Randy (Philip Brown) was the college graduate; Buzz (Doug Barr), the complete extrovert; and Hunk (Tim Rossovich), the resident hulk.
Others around the construction site were Norm Jenkins (Dolph Sweet), the older guy whose wife, Dottie (Alice Hirson), wished he would slow down; Bulldog (Noble Willingham); Hanrahan (Gary Allen), the foreman; and Darlene (Sue Ane Langdon), the operator of the gang’s favourite hangout.
When The Whistle Blows was one of the first US comedies to film with a single camera and no laugh track.
