Popular 80s sitcom based on the Gwen Davenport novel, "Belvedere," which in turn was thrice adapted to the big screen. Like its earlier novel and big-screen brethren, "Mr. Belvedere" featured British butler Lynn Belvedere, who takes a job as a live-in nanny for a typical American family and records their everyday experiences in his diary for future use in writing a novel. In the 1985 small-screen version, the Owens family served as that "typical American family" and the source of fodder for Belvedere who had previously worked as a gentry for Winston Churchill and had connections to British royalty. Family patriarch George (played by sports-caster Bob Uecker) was, in an example of art imitating life, a sports writer; the matriarch was Marsha, a law student.

The show was not on ABC's fall line-up for the 1987-1988 TV season, but an opening in the schedule occurred, after the immediate cancellation of Max Headroom (1987) and these cleverer and most humorous writers kept Mr. Belvedere (1985) from canceling in October of 1987. Additional fact: 88 episodes, for the last four seasons: three, four, five & six were written after the original planned cancellation date was changed and postponed. See more »
I saw the re-runs on TV and my whole family love it. I found out how talented Brice Beckham was. He plays Wesley, who always puts his family into trouble. My little sis fancys him. I mostly liked the looks on Mr. Belvedere's face- especially when he was caught by George while dancing in the opera music. I also liked the part that Wesley broke the TV and waving "Hallelujah!" to Mr.Belvedere to hide the smoke. The casts are great and "Mr.Belvedere" is one of the funniest shows in the 80's.
