Arnie Nuvo has worked on the loading dock at Continental Flange for years, and is quite content in his blue-collar life. When he suddenly gets promoted to Head of Product Improvement one day, his life is turned upside-down. Unsure of how to deal with his new white-collar coworkers and feeling isolated from his old friends, Arnie and his family must make some big adjustments as they struggle to get used to their new surroundings.

I loved tuning in at the age of 7 to see my namesake! Arnie was a fond memory as a child, and I've since gotten a hold of a few episodes on video CD. My favorite is 'Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow' in which Arnie supports his son's school when they require a haircut from the long-haired "hippy" type kid... And a day later Arnie's employer asks him to shave his mustache to maintain the company image!! Here was a show whose very being was based on dramatic conflict, where even the character's name (Nuvo) invoked the concept of Nouveau Riche. But the show never forgot the Prime Directive of comedy and entertainment. Norman Lear could only wish his staff wrote this well. When I cite this show to my friends, I'm proud to be named Arnie.
