Running only one season (1959-1960), this series starred John Vivyan as Mr. Lucky, owner of a floating casino (later restaurant) anchored in international waters off the coast of an unnamed American city. Along with his partner, a streetwise Latin American named Andamo (Ross Martin), he dealt with the various shady characters and dangerous situations that popped up while doing business aboard the luxurious ''Fortuna II''.

A sister-show of sorts to ''Series/PeterGunn'', since they were both created by Creator/BlakeEdwards and shared many [[ProductionPosse key personnel]], including composer Music/HenryMancini. Based on the story ''Bundles for Freedom'' by Milton Holmes. (That story was also the basis of a 1943 motion picture with which this show shares its name but little else.)

!!Tropes:

* AbsurdlyHighStakesGame: The pool game in "That Stands For Pool." Eventually the stakes include $100,000, Lucky's life and Andamo's too.
* AntiHero: Lucky and Andamo, especially in the earlier episodes. They're primarily concerned with preserving their own lives, running their business and helping out friends in need; otherwise they have no inclination toward heroics.
* BananaRepublic: Andamo's native land, Guatamaca, from which he and Lucky are forced to flee in the pilot episode.
* BashBrothers: More often than not, defeating the villain(s)-of-the-week involves Lucky and Andamo working together to beat said villain(s) unconscious.
* BornLucky: Mr. Lucky - in ''two'' senses of the phrase, if "Lucky" is his actual last name.
* BreakTheCutie: A brief foray into this takes place during "Maggie the Witness," when Andamo realizes he may have gotten Maggie killed. Until they find out she's alive he suffers through a mild HeroicBSOD.
* BriefcaseFullOfMoney: Featured in the pilot episode, "The Magnificent Bribe," though it's actually a ''suit''case.
* TheCasino: At least until the ''Fortuna'''s mid-season conversion into a restaurant.
* CasualDangerDialog: The main characters' usual reaction to danger of any kind.
* CatchPhrase: Andamo's "That's it and that's all."
* TheCharmer: Lucky and Andamo.
* ClingyJealousGirl: Maggie occasionally strays into this. There's no indication that she and Lucky are in an exclusive relationship, but she still seems to regard him as her personal property.
* CoolBoat: The yacht ''Fortuna II''.
* CounterfeitCash: "The Money Game" features Lucky and Andamo getting mixed up with a counterfeiting ring.
* DaddysLittleVillain: Maggie is subtly implied to be this. It's not made clear just how involved she is in her father's criminal activities, but she's very much aware of them and shows no signs of disapproval. Mr. Lucky doesn't seem to mind.
* DashingHispanic: Andamo.
* DeadpanSnarker: Though Lucky and Lt. Rovacs have their moments, this is Andamo's speciality.
* DistractedByTheSexy: Andamo is so taken by the girl of the week in "The Sour Milk Fund" that he's oblivious to Lucky's presence.
* DistressedDude: Lucky and Andamo are frequently captured and/or held at gunpoint.
* FakeCharity: As its title implies, the charity in "The Sour Milk Fund."
* FauxFluency: Averted. Ross Martin ''was'' fluent in Spanish.
* FriendOnTheForce: Lieutenant Rovacs, albeit reluctantly at times.
* FunnyForeigner: Andamo occasionally falls into this, but not too far.
* GirlOfTheWeek: Lucky gets a few to supplement his steady diet of Maggie. Andamo acquires one of his own in "The Sour Milk Fund."
* GratuitousSpanish: Averted. Except for an occasional ''compadre'', Andamo tends to stick to English.
* LaResistance: Featured in the pilot episode. Andamo was an active member. In "Aces Back to Back," he tells Lucky that he regrets giving up "a nice quiet revolution to go into partnership with you."
* {{Leitmotif}}: Mr. Lucky and Andamo both have their own theme tunes. Lucky's watch plays the first five notes of his.
* ManInWhite: Andamo seems to have a thing for white suits. Lucky also sports one on occasion.
* MeaningfulName: Mr. Lucky, obviously.
* MonsterOfTheWeek: Usually a gangster, con artist or similar criminal type whose schemes Lucky gets tangled up in somehow.
* MoralityKitchenSink: There are very few absolutely good guys or absolutely bad guys. Most characters fall somewhere in the middle, including Mr. Lucky himself.
* NoNameGiven: We never find out whether Mr. Lucky or Andamo even have first names. Unless "Andamo" ''is'' the man's first name - there's no telling!
* NotInThisForYourRevolution: Lucky ends up helping the police bring many criminals to justice, but it's almost always for purely personal reasons, not out of dedication to any cause.
* TheNotLoveInterest: Despite Lucky having a semi-regular girlfriend, Maggie, and Andamo always chasing after beautiful women, they both seem to fall in the category of one another's most important person.
* OnlyAFleshWound: Andamo gets shot in the leg in "The Sour Milk Fund" but tells Lucky that he's "okay." He is, at least, shown walking with a cane afterwards.
* OnlyInItForTheMoney: Andamo's stated philosophy, though there ''are'' actually a few things he prizes more. Mr. Lucky is slightly less concerned with profit but it's still high on his priority list.
* OutOfCharacterMoment: Maggie gets briefly [[{{Chickification}} chickified]] in "Maggie the Witness," apparently both to [[IdiotBall advance the plot]] and because it's funnier to watch her faint in the face of danger rather than fight.
* PayEvilUntoEvil: The main characters are not above using physical intimidation, up to and including death threats (as demonstrated by Lucky in "The Big Squeeze"), to get what they want out of the bad guys.
* PluckyComicRelief: This is Andamo's primary role.
* PluckyGirl: Maggie. She's forthright, determined to the point of stubbornness and not easily daunted.
* ProfessionalGambler: Mr. Lucky, when he's looking for excitement or has no casino to run.
* ProfessionalKiller: If you're a corrupt dictator struggling against LaResistance, don't let Andamo pick your dinner date. She may be a '''literal''' ''femme fatale''.
* RecurringCharacter: Pippa Scott as Maggie Shank-Rutherford and Tom Brown as Lieutenant Rovacs.
* RunningGag: Lucky receives an ugly painting as a gift in "Aces Back to Back." Much of the rest of the episode focuses around people's reactions to just how spectacularly ugly it is.
* SharpDressedMan: Mr. Lucky and Andamo, especially when officiating aboard the ''Fortuna''.
* {{Sidekick}}: Andamo.
* SnarkToSnarkCombat: Lt. Rovacs tends to engage in this with Lucky and Andamo whenever they meet up.
* ThemeTuneCameo: Almost every episode, due to the fact that Mr. Lucky's watch plays the first five notes of the show's theme - ''his'' theme - whenever it's opened.
* TieInNovel: ''Mr. Lucky'', by Albert Conroy and Mort Engle, published in 1960.
* WhereTheHellIsSpringfield: The name and location of the city off of whose coast the ''Fortuna II'' sits are never mentioned.
