Poetry Friday: The Courtship Of Eddie's Father

The round up is at Kelly Fineman's Writing and Ruminating.

In honor of my support of TV, I offer you one of the great theme songs of my childhood TV watching.

The Courtship of Eddie's Father (aka "Best Friend") by Harry Nilsson

People let me tell you 'bout my best friend,
He's a warm hearted person who'll love me till the end.
People let me tell you bout my best friend,
He's a one boy cuddly toy, my up, my down, my pride and joy.

The rest of the song is here.

Wikipedia Information on the show; I love how it was based on a movie shot six years before the TV show. Quick, without looking, who originally played Eddie? And I loved how they changed Mrs. Livingston.
Still more on the show.
Bill Bixby still breaks my heart. I loved Brenda Benet on Days of Our Lives.

Oh man, I'd forgotten all about that show and I loved it. I also love Harry Nilsson.

Thanks for the trip down memory lane.

I loved that show. Even though I was closer to Eddie's age, I totally crushed on Bill Bixby. And I loved that Mrs. Livingston was a wonderful Japanese woman. I wanted her to be my nanny/housekeeper.
