The Family Doctor

Post by Kitty » Mon Jul 15, 2019 5:47 pm

This show is very pleasant and quaintly humorous. Curiously, only 12 of the 39 episodes recorded were aired. Only criticism I have so far is that the theme is unusually long. https://archive.org/details/OTRR_Family_Doctor_Singles

Sounds interesting. I see what you mean about the theme. :shock: It goes on forever! I wonder why they did that. Odd.

There's a character named Griff who sounds just like Wesley the Wailing Whale --- turns out it is!! It's a Transco series, too, just like Cinnamon Bear.

I think the Doctor's wife is Bertha. You gotta listen so you can tell me how crazy I am! Haha

Yes, the wife could very well be Bertha. Hard to tell for sure without the accent, but it does sound a great deal like her.

How about that! :) And that's just the way I pictured the good doctor as looking.
