Good Show for All Viewers

"I've waited 40 years to see these shows again. I always thought the concept was excellent -- an existential, solitary dog solves human problems (with a different cast of characters every week) -- and that London put Lassie to shame. Unlike the latter series, this is not really a kids' show.
A couple of clever touches are that London doesn't bark very much -- he "emotes" instead -- and he is essentially a supporting player who usually has less screen time than the human actors. As others have noted, the themes of this anthology series are sometimes almost dark -- illustrating some negative aspects of human behavior -- and for this reason I believe the show was intended for adults as well as kids.
While most of the episodes now seem low budget, predictable and written at a high-school level, they still do not disappoint, and they're far better, overall, than the garbage on TV today.

"Gosh, I remember these. I just had to get it and guess what? MY grandkids love them too!! We sat and watched them together. Imagine, such a good clean set of values. WOW, hope it rubs off."
