Description by OLDIES.com:
Women find handsome and carefree Robert S. Beanblossom (Bob Cummings) irresistible. Perhaps that is why such a clueless real estate salesman is a hero in the eyes of secretary Julie Marshall (Julie Bishop). Boss Willis Thackery (John Litel) sees things differently and tries to reign in Beanblossom's bumbling antics. In spite of his efforts, Mr. Thackery's small Hollywood firm is the scene of a never ending parade of uproarious adventures. Loyal side-kick Julie always tries to fix Beanblossom's unwitting slip-ups, but only seems to makes things worse and a whole lot funnier. This early television sitcom is the first of four starring Bob Cummings that include "Love That Bob," "The Bob Cummings Show" and "My Living Doll."
Lady Mortician: Beanblossom can't tell whether a sexy client is chasing him for romance, or if she wants to drink his blood.
El Toro: A wealthy Spanish family mistakes Don for "El Diablo," a legendary bullfighter. (Although this episode aired in the middle of the first season, the fact that Beanblossom's name is inexplicably changed to Don S. Holmes, leads to speculation that it may have been the pilot.)
The Catering Story: Robert must impersonate a ritzy French caterer to make a huge sale.
The Fishing Story: With mules unavailable for his big fishing outing, Mr.Thackeray invites Beanblossom along to haul heavy equipment up the mountain.
Three years before his turn as a footloose photographer of gorgeous models in THE BOB CUMMINGS SHOW, comedic actor Bob Cummings toplined another situation comedy. MY HERO ran for one season, from November 1952 through August 1953 on NBC. In this program, Bob's role was much less glamorous; he starred as Robert S. Beanblossom, a real estate salesman for the Thackeray Realty Company whose blundering haplessness didn't prevent him from repeatedly closing deals. Also on hand was his loyal secretary, Julie Marshall (Julie Bishop), who did much to enable Beanblossom's success and protect him from the boss, Willis Thackeray (John Litel). This box set contains four MY HERO EPISODES as they originally aired on television: LACY MORTICIAN, EL TORO, THE CATERING STORY and THE FISHING STORY.
