"You can't pick your own relatives" goes the old saying, but that's exactly what a lonely hair dresser named Ginger-Nell Hollyhock did. Placing classified ads in local papers, she recruited a con man husband ("Fast Eddie"), a tap dancing daughter (Anna Maries) a son who wanted to fly like a bird(Junior) and a tottering old grandfather (Grandpa) all whom came to live together-for the laughs. The setting is in Kansas City, Missouri which adds period color.
