The trials and tribulations of (and caused by) one teenage boy are the focus of this popular series. At the beginning of every episode, listeners hear the timeless call of Henry Aldrich, "Coming Mother!" Living in a quaint small town with a typical middle class family, Henry ought to be a very ordinary young man. However, the confusion and chaos that he innocently creates shows that he is anything but ordinary! While he regularly gets in to all kinds of trouble, his most frequent problems concern the ultimate nemesis of any teenage boy: girls. "The Aldrich family" was so well liked by other families across America that it was broadcast for almost 14 years.
