Mr. Peepers (sitcom, starring Wally Cox)

     (NBC Primetime, 1952- 1955)

     [The story was about a mild-mannered high school science teacher,
      the epitome of a "Casper Milktoast." It was played by Wally Cox,
      a character actor who could well play the role with a nerdy
      voice. But inexplicably Cox was, in real life, quite a ladies 
      man, a former roommate and lifelong friend of Marlon Brando;

      After "Mr. Peepers" was cancelled, Wally Cox was given another
      sitcom -- "The Adventures of Hiram Holiday" (1956 - 1957) which
      lasted one season ; His longest-lasting gig was the voice of 
      the lead role in the cartoon "Underdog", which lasted for nine
      seasons (1964 to 1973.)]
