Saturtainment: Tennessee Tuxedo in Tick Tock (1963)

If anything, during the course of his three seasons on CBS (1963-6), Tennessee Tuxedo (Don Adams) served as a learning avatar for children watching at home.

One example is "Tick Tock", in which Chumley (Bradley Bolke) accidentally damages a clock donated to the zoo, and he & Tennessee must learn how to properly repair the clock, with help from their human friend, Phineas J. Whoopee (Larry Storch).

As we've noted, Storch would recycle his Whoopee voice for Dracula on The Groovie Goolies a few years later. Kenny Delmar is the narrator.

Rating: B.
