TV show description:
Al Hughes (Redd Foxx) and his wife Grace were foster parents to 25 children over the years. But after Grace passed away, the curmudgeon swore off taking in any more children, especially girls. When his social worker comes for a visit, she pleads with Al to take in Toni (Pamela Segall). Al is insistent but when the social worker says he’s Toni’s last hope, he softens and agrees to take “him” in. Tomboy Toni comes to live with Al, keeps her female gender a secret, and helps him at his newsstand/diner.
