Brandon Cruz, who played young Eddie Corbett, later went on to become a stalwart of the Southern California hardcore punk scene. Initially fronting the Oxnard, CA based band Dr. Know from 1981-1983, he later went on to sing for Bay Area-based hardcore punk legends Dead Kennedys when they re-formed without founding vocalist Jello Biafra from 2001-2003. Having survived being a child star, Cruz is quoted as saying, "Surfing and punk rock saved my life." See more »
This show really worked in large part to the way the late great actor Bill Bixby handled the part with such realistic care and ease. This gave the show the right texture and feeling and was a nice platform for the young Brandon Cruz to work from. The show also worked because of the unique combination of the talents of the whole cast including the great Miyoshi Umeki and of sensitive and intelligent script writing. Like many others, I would like to see these episodes repeated again on one of the classic TV networks.
