Question: Who starred in Hennessy and what years? Was it Jackie Cooper and Juliet Prowse? — Jim P., Louisville, Ky.

Televisionary: Jeez, Jim, if you keep trying answering your own questions you might start a trend. And why would they bother paying for my column, then?

Lucky for me you're only half-right. Yes indeed, it was Cooper playing medical officer Chick Hennesy, who treated the fine folks of his San Diego naval base. But Abby Dalton was his romantic interest, nurse Martha Hale, on the series, not Ms. Prowse. Also in the cast were James Komack (The Courtship of Eddie's Father) as blueblood dentist Harvey Spencer Blair III and Arte Johnson (Rowan &#038 Martin's Laugh-In) as Seaman Shatz.

The CBS series ran from September 1959 to September 1962.
