My Three Sons picture

Trivia: The series was filmed out of sequence; Fred MacMurray's scenes were filmed first, while scenes without him were filmed later on. This became evident when Dawn Lyn joined the cast as Dodie. Her permanent teeth were still coming in; as a result, her upper front teeth are barely visible in scenes with MacMurray and more prominent in scenes without him - often in the same episode.
