Charlie and his family move to Northern California from L.A. Charlie decides that here's his golden opportunity to change his image. No more Mr. Nice Guy -- it's goodbye to good ol' Charlie. Charlie tries a succession of disguises -- Chuck a cowboy, Chad a reclusive poet, Chip a punk from Sunset strip-- all get him into trouble. Rescue always seems to come in the form of a couple of good ol' types -- Paula and Byron. Can Charlie change his image or will he be stuck at Good Ol' Charlie forever?
