Please Don't Eat the Daisies is an American sitcom that aired on NBC from September 14, 1965 to April 22, 1967. The series was based upon the 1957 book by Jean Kerr and 1960 film starring Doris Day and David Niven. The series ran for 58 half-hour episodes and stars Patricia Crowley and Mark Miller. The show also features Dub Taylor, Clint Howard, and Bonnie Franklin for multiple appearances; Ellen Corby had a recurring role as Martha the housekeeper. Robert Vaughn and David McCallum appeared in the "Say UNCLE" episode as Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin, and Stefanie Powers appeared as April Dancer in the "Remember Lake Serene" episode, connecting this series to The Man from U.N.C.L.E. and The Girl from U.N.C.L.E.. In its first season, the show did fairly well in the ratings. It was scheduled on Tuesday nights opposite the second half of two veteran shows on prime time television, Rawhide on CBS and Combat! on ABC. For its second year, Please Don't Eat The Daisies was moved to Saturday nights where it faced brutal competition against the second half of The Jackie Gleason Show. The ratings fell and NBC canceled the series in the spring of 1967.
