TV: B is for...

Big John, Little John

PHIL SILVERS-LOOKALIKE teaches in your average all-American high school but, thanks to incredibly contrived exploring-in-Florida-drinks-from-fountain-of-youth mix-up (“and that magic water/was the thing that made him shrink” explained painstaking theme), turns sporadically from balding, mid-forties science master into small, same-age-as-pupils-in-class-he’s-teaching kid. Dreamed up by man behind THE BRADY BUNCH and GILLIGAN’S ISLAND. Endless amusement derived from anticipating the moment when “Zap! He’ll change, and rearrange, and he’s Big John again!” Endless for three-year-olds, that is.
