This aired as a "busted pilot" on CBS. I watched because of Brianne Leary, from CHIPs. The mixture of live action with a few animated sequences was fun. A review of the cast tells you that it was a standard sitcom of the period. Leary was so charming and lovely, it was a shame she never found a starring vehicle. Matt McCoy is best known today for his Insurance commercials. He was the star of "We Got It Made", NBC's ripoff of "Threes Company." He also appeared as a psycho computer salesman on "Seinfeld." His Character in this pilot was a little too smug. He was a white collar cartoonist working for A newspaper, trying to push the envelope by doing political cartoons, over the objections of his conservative boss, who was also his girlfriend's (Leary) dad. In non-Norman Lear sitcoms, conservative-liberal differences were only discussed in terms of hair and fashion, without specific discussions of issues. This would've been a real weak spot if the show had gotten picked up.
