This was the first show in a 2 year run for Jim Nabors following the end of his highly popular Gomer Pyle USMC. Mr. Nabors brought Ronnie Schnell and Frank Sutton from Gomer Pyle to help star in this variety series. In this initial offering his guests were Andy Griffith, Julie Budd, and a very brief appearance by Don Knotts. Mr. Nabors essays several songs, among them Green Green Grass of Home and The Impossible Dream. He also appeared in a couple of comedy skits that were passable. All in all a decent debut and one that would please his middle American fans.
