Storyline

The Hathaway family consisted of two humans, Elinore and Walter, and three chimps, the Marquis Chimps. Elinore treated them like children and also served as a booking agent for the trio in their show biz act. Walter, a real estate agent, had mixed emotions about this arrangement wondering if his wife thought more of the chimps than him. The neighbors also had problems with the "children." Written by J.E. McKillop <jack-mckillop@worldnet.att.net>

As a kid I even hated this awful excuse for TV fare. Weston and Cass are pretty good actors, but this drivel couldn't be saved by Streep and Olivier. In a sick, twisted way, I'd like to see these again just to remind me of how putrid the show was/is. The producers surely learned quickly that this tripe made Beverly Hillbillies look like Shakespeare. It lasted on worthless season and was mercifully euthanized before it could propagate.
