Then comes the daythe soldiers ship off for home. Little Dondi, longing to stay with his Mr. G.I. Buddies, stows away on the troopship, sure that America has room for one more immigrant. David Janssen heads a cast of popular character actors, including Arnold Stang, Robert Strauss and Gale Gordon, in a heartwarming tale based on Gus Edson and Irwin Hasens popular newspaper comic strip that ran from the 50s to the 80s.
