The Tony Randall Show

The Tony Randall Show

This sitcom recounts the life of a stuffy judge. Tony Randall plays "Walter Franklin," a Philadelphia judge and widower who deals wisely with problems from the bench, but is less competent in coping with his children, a sub-teen son and a strong-willed daughter.
"The Tony Randall Show;" a half-hour comedy series starring Emmy Award-winner Tony Randall as Judge Walter Franklin, a contemporary courtroom judge in Philadelphia who has as many trials and vexations off the bench as on,
