Storyline

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. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

A family favorite
5 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've never met a contemporary in the States who even remembers this show. I find that amazing and sad. I lived in Brussels from '67-'72. While we also got a couple BBC shows, my family's options for American TV were limited to 2-3 shows a week.

Over the five years we lived in Brussels, I only recall "Wonderful World of Disney", "Doctari", "I Love Lucy", "Voyage to The Bottom of the Sea" and "Arnie".

Of them all, only "Arnie" became a family viewing event. Of course, due to the dearth of options, we would usually all watch each of the above shows, "Arnie" was the one that the whole family paid attention to, and laughed at together. Mr. Majors stole that show, in our opinion.
