Trivia

Even though this show was considered a spin off of Diff'rent Strokes (1978), the connection between the two shows wasn't explained until a few months after the show premiered. Since both shows were produced by the same company, it was decided to have a plot where Larry Alder and Phillip Drummond (McLean Stevenson and Conrad Bain respectively) were old army buddies from Korea as a way of having the shows cross over and boost the ratings of Hello Larry.

Hello-Goodbye!
30 July 2005 | by (Phx. Arizona ("Arizona Smells Funny"!- Homer Simpson)) – See all my reviews

Having watched this abomination in '79-'80,it's easy to see why NBC was the worst! It's also easy to see that MacLean Stevenson just couldn't catch a decent break in the sitcom world! "The MacLean Stvenson Show","In The Beginning",this humiliating show and a last ditch effort on ABC known as "Condo",(which I thought was the best out of the 4!)

The only other places to find Maclean between this and his passing are Disney's,"The Cat From Outer Space" and a guest shot on NBC's,"The Golden Girls". A few years after that he was gone. All I have to say about "Hello Larry" is if it had gotten better writers,it could have been something. It's inane,silly,stupid and even annoying!

If through some twist of fate it ends up DVD,I caution you to think before you spend! Bad enough one ever had to spend time just watching it. 0 stars because even "BJ and The Bear" was better than this!
