Nipping It In The Bud
If you gaze at ABC’s fall schedule, all of a sudden you’ll find a show called Samantha Who? This is not another Doctor Who spin-off, and star Christina Applegate is probably not the new companion.
This show was originally titled Sam I Am until the Dr. Seuss estate (Private Snafu‘s Theodore Geisel) said something to the effect of "are you out of your damn mind?" So the Mouse Network changed it to Samantha Be Good. It’s amazing how many people at Disney never heard of George and Ira Gershwin or Chuck Berry, but I guess eventually somebody squawked.
So the alphabet geniuses came up with Samantha Who? Since it’s their third generation, I assume the show is actually a tribute to Jon Pertwee.
