In the spring of 1967 WPIX TV Ch.11 regained the tv rights to "The Little Rascals" films and they began rerunning the films again.

Set against the backdrop of the deck and the captain's cabin, "Capt. Jack" McCarthy would engage his "Mayteys" (his viewers) in stories, craftmaking, hobbies, informational segments and interviews with guest performers and personalities inbetween the screenings of the films. "Capt. Jack" would continue to mc the program until he left the show following the Friday January 1, 1970 broadcast of the show.

The show moved to a weekday morning timeslot and "Officer Joe" Bolton would once again entertain and inform his viewers inbetween the cinematic antics of "Spanky", Darla, "Buckwheat", "Porky", "Alfalfa", "Butch" etc from Monday January 4, 1970 until Friday June 30, 1972 when the show was cancelled following the mandate from The ACT and Forum, Inc. that all tv stations including WPIX TV create and produce quality educational kids tv shows.

With the cancellation of "The Little Rascals Show", "Officer Joe" Bolton left NYC kids tv and an era had ended.
