It was produced by T.A.T. Communications Company.
The series centered on Ginger-Nell Hollyhock, a single and lonely hairdresser who lives in Kansas City, Missouri during the Great Depression year of 1933.
When Ginger-Nell places classified ads in the local newspapers, she recruits a group of wacky relatives: con-man husband, Fast Eddie Murtaugh; tap-dancing daughter, Anna Marie Hollyhock; Junior Hollyock, a son who wanted to fly like a bird and a tottering old blind grandfather, Grandpa Hollyhock.
