The title in question BILL was indeed a made-for-tv item starring Mickey
Rooney and made in 1981 by the Alan Landsburg Company. There is also a
sequel called BILL: ON HIS OWN made in 1983. There are descriptions in
WatMedia. They are listed as being distributed by Live Home Video in the
USA, I don't have a Canadian distributor listed.
