Broadcast history

The program debuted on October 10, 1960, and finished its original episodes on June 28, 1961. It aired at 8:30 pm Eastern on Mondays between Pete and Gladys (starring Harry Morgan and Cara Williams) and The Danny Thomas Show. Its competition was ABC's new detective series Surfside 6 set in Miami, and Dale Robertson's Tales of Wells Fargo Western series on NBC. In the following season, CBS returned Robert Young to the 8:30 Monday timeslot in his Window on Main Street nostalgia comedy, which also failed to develop an audience.

Production notes

Bringing Up Buddy was created by Joe Connelly and Bob Mosher.

The series' theme song was written by George Tibbles, who also was a screenwriter for ABC's (later CBS) My Three Sons starring Fred MacMurray.
