Storyline

Rhoda is an extremely sexy young woman living with womanizing Air Force shrink Bob McDonald. What Bob knows and the rest of the world does not is that Rhoda's real name is AF 709, and she is actually a sophisticated (yet naive) robot. Bob's job is to teach Rhoda how to be a "perfect" woman, and keep her identity secret from the world -- especially lecherous neighbor Peter. When actor Bob Cummings left the series in early 1965, his character was written out of the series, and Peter was given the duty of taking care of Rhoda. Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@wkio.com>

Trivia

Julie Newmsr said in a 2013 interview that she loved the concept of the show. "So brilliant and so marvelous. Here's a woman who is everything to a man. She has every quality that he could dream of, wish for, want, and yet she's not real. When comedy works, two co-stars should be able to let the juices flow naturally, sweet and saline, and come to the surface. I'm talking about the playfulness and the wonderful physicality of it as well, because humor really comes out of character. And if it doesn't, the audience just sits there and they should turn the dial. And being up against a co-star like Bob Cummings, when you look at it, he was a living doll. It was almost a great show." See more »

Alternate Versions

Two versions of the opening credits exist. The first version, showing Newmar wearing a teddy, was rejected as too suggestive (according to the 2012 DVD release) and replaced with an alternate version with Rhoda more fully clothed. Although the 2012 DVD release uses the "fully clothed" version for all episodes, the versions of the episodes circulated online and in unofficial DVD/VHS releases use the teddy version of the credits.

My Living Doll is a great show that uses many of the same production staff from My Favorite Martian. Having seen over ten of the episodes in a restored state they are funny and entertaining. Julie Newmar is wonderful as the Doll, a child like super machine she displays grace and a comic charm that is timeless. The major problem at this point is tracking down film elements to restore this gem. If you want to see this show complete please contact me as I work for the Chertok company and we are doing our best to bring it back. Be a part of the return of this show, give future generation a chance to see this science fiction comedy complete.
