Early-'60s dysfunctional-family humor, narrated by the (now-adult) younger son, `Wonder Years'-style. The dysfunction comes naturally when Mom is obsessed with Jackie Kennedy and Dad really enjoys being a dentist (it's his hobby as well as his job). As for 11-year-old Oliver, he's the `class clown' whose hero happens to be comic Lenny Bruce.

Oliver seeks revenge on a bratty smart girl (Amy Bruckner ) who's always picking on him, and he just might get it in the school geography bee, even though he's terrible at geography. (No, he learns, neither Budapest nor Bucharest is the capital of New York State.) Meanwhile, a patient who doesn't have enough money to pay Jerry gives him a ping-pong table instead, which leads, in a roundabout way, to a life lesson for Ted.
