Judge Harold T. Stone presides over "Night Court", a court which deals with petty crimes which can be dealt with in a dime-a-dozen manner. Invariably, the cases appearing before the court are bizarre, but that's ok because Judge Stone is not your regular judge. He's assisted by a motley crew of clerks and District Attorneys who often create as much chaos as the criminals they bring in for trial. Written by

There's a scene where John Larroquette's character, Dan Fielding, is trapped in a motel room with a psychotic woman who acts out movie roles. While watching TV an announcer says, "We'll return to 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre'..." to which Larroquette says, "Seen that already." Larroquette was the voice of the Narrator in the 1974 "The Texas Chain Saw Massacre" and the 2003 remake. See more »

Oh, don't worry, Your Honor. I'm just having one of those dreams where you show up to work in your underwear.
Bull, this isn't a dream.

The 80's produced some of Televisions best sitcom's, and Night Court is one of the eras shining examples. Harry Anderson's, Judge Harold T Stone is surrounded by an eccentric but very likable group. From the womanizing antics of John Larroquette's Dan Fielding, to Richard Moll's confused lovable giant, Bull Shannon, the cast never disappointed.
They were not afraid to be bizarre, as the writers would give us scenes such as Wild E Coyote appearing before Judge Stone for chasing the Road Runner. The cast would also face believable moral dilemmas, that alot of today's sitcom's do not dare attempt, or pull off as successfully.
