Scott Baio stars as Charles, a nineteen-year-old college student who, in exchange for room and board, serves as a live-in nanny to three energetic children. Helping Charles through his more trying moments is his irreverent friend Buddy Lembeck (Willie Aames). A classic family comedy, "Charles in Charge" remains a popular series for all audiences as well as a cultural touchstone for a generation of fans who wanted nothing more than for Scott Baio to be in charge of their days and their nights.
