Trivia

Norman Lear's shows were being produced at Metromedia Square in Hollywood, but there was inadequate space for this show, so they rented studio space from KTLA. The KTLA studio was across Fernwood Street, so they started calling KTLA "Fernwood", which then became the name of the fictitious town where the show is set. See more »

Quotes

Martha Shumway: Yes, yes, things can always be worse - like my uncle Wilbur, who used to work in a cardboard factory. He came home one day with a splinter in his finger - just a little bitty old splinter. But it turned out that he had blood poisoning.
Charlie Haggers: Well, that's terrible.
Martha Shumway: And next day, they amputated his leg.
Charlie Haggers: On account of a splinter in his finger?
Martha Shumway: Oh no, no, not because of that. They found a growth in his leg.

Terrific!
25 May 2007 | by (Dallas, Texas) – See all my reviews

Who would have guessed that 30 years later Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman would still be an absolutely hilarious and entertaining program? Controversial for its time, Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman still seems to walk the line of racy subject matters.....not subtle and not over-the-top. Watching takes you back in time. It is entertaining to see the fashion statements and listen to the dialog from so long ago. The series is really like a time capsule! Also enjoyable is the product placement, a real blast-to-the-past! Thanks to everyone who brought this program to DVD. I certainly hope that the entire series makes it to video.
