This was a brilliant show with a truly memorable final episode. As a fan of the Bob Newhart Show as well as the Newhart Show, I was doubly rewarded when watching this the night it originally aired.

btw... I've always said that the Newhart Show owed a lot to the TV show Green Acres. The zany, absurdist plots and characters all swirling around the "grounded" central character of that show (Eddie Albert's Oliver Wendell Douglas) were forerunners of a similar formula used on the Newhart Show.


Ah, but did "Newhart" have an Arnold the Pig (or as wonderful a theme song)? Yes, watching that episode live was so rewarding because it was a complete surprise.
