We are aware.
I had forgotten about Frawley (Fred Mertz on I Love Lucy). The show was originally on ABC for a few years and then switched to CBS. The original oldest son (would have to look up his name) was also on a Disney? kids show in the 50's (Spin and Marty?) Edit: His name is Tim Considine.
Hard to believe Chip and Ernie are probably 60+ now. They are frozen in time by that show.
