Editorial Reviews

Newhart portrays Bob McKay, the creator of the 1950s comic book superhero "Mad-Dog." When a Senate sub-committee decided such reading material could corrupt young readers, Mad-Dog faded into oblivion. Bob became a greeting card artist, and years later Mad-Dog is revived when the American-Canadian Trans-Continental Communications Company buys the rights to the series. Complications ensued when AmCanTranConComCo head Harlan Stone (John Cygan) insists Mad-Dog should be a bloodthirsty vigilante rather than the hero Bob originally created. Bob initially turns down Harlan's offer to revive the series with the publisher, but after his wife, Kaye (Carlene Watkins) reminded Bob that Mad-Dog would never give up dreams in the face of defeat, he decides to compromise with Harlan on creative direction, and the two became a team.

Only problem with these DVDs is the picture quality.

BOB was my favorite show back in 92. I recorded a lot of the shows on VHS and still have the tape. I was even able to record six episodes with a long dead DVD recorder. It will be great to see this show again as it was populated with some of the craziest characters ever on TV.
Iris, the comic book colorist with a bad attitude and a seldom missing cigarette. Chad, a weird stoner type in love with Bob's daughter. Albie, who we never really get to know (and that's a good thing). Trish, Bob's wife who seems to be the only normal person around. The unseen owner of the comic book company, Mr. Terhorst, a disembodied voice on a speaker/speaker phone.
TV legends Dick Martin, Steve Lawrence, Tom Poston and George Wendt (Playing himself!) are peppered throughout the series.
It only loses steam when CBS decides to reformat the show by cancelling Bob's comic and firing everyone and sending Bob back to his old job at the greeting card company which he hated. Adding Betty White and Jere Burns did nothing for this show but cancel it.
Enjoy the first season of weird and funny people who work in a business that most people can't relate to.
It really is like finding money in an old suit.
As one uncertain reviewer said of the unusual career for Newhart on this particular series, "Bob Newhart would be funny in peanut butter."
He's sure funny in BOB!

It is great to finally see the television show BOB being issued on DVD. In the early 1990's, I belonged to the PRODIGY computer network, an earlier version of AOL, that was co-owned by IBM and Sears. On Prodigy, there were television discussion groups, or "boards," that discussed the various television shows. One I participated in discussed BOB, the third television series, well, really the fourth, but that's another story, that featured Bob Newhart. After each show, other viewers and myself would write about the show: what bits we liked best, how we thought it could have played even better if they had done something. At the time, Prodigy was the top dog of the computer services, and often times, a television show would have someone reading the posts, lurkers we called them, to gauge how the show was going. Well, imagine my surprise one day, when I noticed a posting by "Bob Newhart." I e-mailed him and discovered it was the "real" Bob Newhart. Knowing how folks sometimes are on the boards, I suggested he delete his note, and told him that if he really wanted to post something, he might do this under another name with a secondary account number. Quite frankly, I was glad to know he was looking in on what we were discussing, but I did not want him inundated with hundreds of e-mails. He followed my suggestion, and afterwards, we e-mailed each other from time-to-time as long as the show was on the air.

From our e-mails, I remember him remarking how one of his sons had been reading the posts about our group talking about the show, and the feedback was helpful. None of our plot ideas were ever used, but our comments were considered, similar to those of the "lobby group" in an episode.

Been looking for "BOB!" for the longest time. It only lasted 1 1/2 seasons, mainly due to CBS's format tinkering and day change, but season one is a riot. Bob is a greeting card artist who once was the creator of a popular superhero comic book. Now the comic is coming back and Bob goes to work for the comic company. Doesn't sound like much but in the low key style of Newhart it is hilarious. A giant bonus is the adorable Cynthia Stevenson as his daughter (she really stands out in the anniversary episode). For some reason CBS demanded some changes for season two which threw the show out of whack but if it was given more time it would have adjusted (even Betty White was added) but after moving it to a suicide Friday slot it was unceremoniously dropped mid-season. Shame on CBS but yay Paramount for releasing this. Now if we can get Par. to release "George and Leo" (Bob, Judd Hirsch and Jason Bateman) and the remaining seasons of "Newhart" it would be a perfect BOB/DVD world!

Amazing series. The acting and writing were brilliant. So excited to have this series finally come out.
Bob Newhart is at his very best. Cynthia Stevenson and Carlene Watkins round out this crazy family.
Season 2 has Jeri Burns and Betty White working with Bob.
This was a very funny series, brought to you by the exec producers of 'Cheers'.

I got the dvd this week and have watched the first 3 episodes. The show still makes me laugh. The opening of each show has the old CBS - "In Stereo where available" logo pop up as if the transfers were taken from a CBS affiliates broadcast recordings. The colors are a bit washed out but the show is still funny. The 4 stars are for the content. 2 stars for the video quality.
