Synopsis

Charles, a college student, moves in with the Pembroke family. He doesn't pay rent in exchange for taking care of their children and the house. The Pembrokes' work (due to low ratings) transfered them to another city. The Powells then move in. The family consists of a mother, two daughters, a son, and a retired military grandfather. If I am not mistaken, the father is in the military and only shows up every once in a while. Charles was attached to the Pembrokes and did not want to stay on in the house to take care of the Powells. But alas, he formed a connection with the family and stayed. For the next four years, Charles takes care of the children and the house, becoming in essence a part of the family. At the same time, the audience witnesses his family problems with his elvis obsessed mother, and the rigors of being a college student with his odd party obsessed best friend Buddy.

Trivia

Charles's last name is never mentioned on the show - in fact, sometimes the writers went out of their way to avoid mentioning his (or his mother's) surname.

Ellen Travolta, who plays Charles's mother Lillian, previously played Charles "Chachi" Arcola's mother in "Happy Days" (1974) and "Joanie Loves Chachi" (1982). Both Charleses were played by Scott Baio.

Originally broadcast for a year on CBS (October 1984-July 1985), then went to first-run syndication starting in January 1987.

The location and name of the college at which Charles and his friends were students was not specified until the show moved from CBS to syndication, at which time it was revealed that Charles attended Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey.
