Just checked on the IMDB and Stephen Franken is still with us and working.
By the way how could anyone have ever been in love with Zelda Gilroy even on a good night???????????????
Don't forget Chatsworth's "Mummsy" played I believe by Doris Packer. She always referred to Chatsworth as "such a nasty boy." Beatty played Milton Armitage, a less amusing rich kid. Also, William Schallert played Mr. Pomfritt, their high school teacher. Frank Faylen was Herbert T. Gillis, and Florida Friebus was Winnie Gillis. Herbert always used to talk about his "good conduct medal." Also would always say about Dobie "Someday I gotta kill that boy, I just gotta." Wonderful show.
Of course? I'm in my mid 40s, and I don't recall ever seeing that show. And yes, I grew up
inside a metropolitan area, and got channels from another "market" as well.
Whoops! Missed your post (re: Zelda).
There was a blonde manipulatrix in the show too. Perfectly described by the Bob Dylan song line "girl by the whirlpool, lookin' for a new fool!"
