- Series Description
In these humorous and affectionate television poems, humorist Jean Shepherd celebrates America in all its richness and diversity -- from cars to candy, baseball to beer, motels to money. Each week a different aspect of our national psyche is explored as Shepherd travels to the Okefenokee Swamp, Death Valley, Milwaukee, the Old South, and other far-flung locations -- using the PCP-90 portable camera.

- Program Description
Jean Shepherd is a man with a mission, a cause, something to believe in. Food. Especially American food. He thinks it’s great, that it smells good, tastes good, and looks good. Anything from Maine lobster to Klondike bear stew, they’re all the Mona Lisa to him.
