Here was another show I loved, Best of the West
I saw a few episodes of that but don't remember much. Didn't that show last a couple of seasons? I'm surprised it didn't wind up on TVLand or something.
I remember this show fondly. I know it didn't last long enough for syndication, though for some reason I thought it aired for two shortened season. But a quick check reveals it was on the air for one full season of 22 episodes for the 1981-82 season.
I liked the show and recall that it starred a pre-Silver Spoons Joel Higgins as the title character and also Meeno Peluce as his son. Peluce was a regular presence on TV in the late 70's/early 80's, but his career would fade by the time he reached high school age. Now he is mainly remembered for being Soleil Moon Frye's brother.
Today Peluce would be called a show killer as he was a regular on several short lived series. Besides Best of the West, he was on Voyagers and the TV version of The Bad News Bears. He also made guest appearances on a few other doomed shows, like Tenspeed and Brownshoe, Manimal and Angie.
