Personal Quote:

[When he came this close to quitting Newhart (1982), after 4 seasons]: I thought I was finished. Even dramatic shows were exemplified by kid stuff like 'Wonder Woman'. I thought to myself that with this kind of junk aimed at the 12-year-old audience, how could there be a place for me? See more »
