    Without looking it up: Who played the other brothers?

    Tim Considine (the soldier slapped by General Patton) played Mike, who got the Chuck Cunningham treatment when CBS took over the series from ABC. Stanley Livingston played Chip and Barry Livingston was Ernie.

    You get half-credit ..... William Frawley was the other. He was Fred on I Love Lucy.

    I was only 3 when the series ended, but I remember watching the re-runs (along with several other '60s and early-'70s shows) while growing up.

    I LOVED M3S, mostly because my sister was a major c-word and I essentially grew up as an only child.

    RIP. Say hi to Steve, Bub and Uncle Charley.

    Except Frawley played Bub, the boys' maternal grandfather. Charley was Bub's brother, if I remember correctly.

    The most unintentionally funny thing I ever read in my life was a 1988 Indianapolis 500 yearbook story about Tim Considine.

    Then, as now, the Indy 500 couldn't draw dick for real celebrities. It was probably worse then if that can be believed.

    Considine was the celebrity IMS feted. In 1988.

    The story was two pages long and made Considine out to be Robert Redford. I believe Dan "Pee Wee from Porky's" Monahan, who is from Indiana, also had a story devoted to him in the same yearbook, but not as long.

    It was hilarious. I wish I still had it.
