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!
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.Read more ›
Bob Newhart is at his very best. Cynthia Stevenson and Carlene Watkins round out this crazy family.
Season 2 has Jere Burns and Betty White working with Bob.
This was a very funny series, brought to you by the exec producers of 'Cheers'.

I like that he makes comics. I've made a couple comics. I wish he would've stuck with that, instead of switching to cards. Read morePublished 21 days ago by Richard S

I love Bob Newhart but this, in my opinion, was his weakest series. The writing was poor and the writers seemed to struggle to find funny circumstances to build around every week. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Joel F. Cella
