Kentucky Jones (drama, starring Dennis Weaver)

    (NBC Primetime, 1964 - 1965)

    [Dennis Weaver left the CBS hit series "Gunsmoke" to
     star in this series described as a "comedy-drama"; the
     far-fetched premise was that Weaver's character was
     a veterinarian recently widowed who becomes the guardian
     of a 10-year old orphan boy from China with the improbable
     name of "Dwight Eisenhower (Ike) Wong"; viewers didn't
     buy it, so Weaver moved on to star in "McCloud"]
