Question: I remember a show from the early '70s that starred Adam Arkin as a kid who was on his own for the first time. His apartment had wallpaper with ducks on it and Barbara Rhoades played the neighbor who lived across the hall from him. No one else seems to remember this show. Please help. If it helps, I think it was on Monday night on CBS. — Chet, Rochester, N.Y.

Televisionary: No one else remembers because you seem to have vacuumed up all the spare facts about the show, Chet. Impressive work; you make my job easy.

Unfortunately for all involved, the series didn't last a year — it busted loose from the network's schedule in November.
