Randolf Stonehill and Albert Dudley are respectively the third generation owner of and butler for Marblehead Manor, a mansion someplace in New England, USA. Randolf is also heir to the Stonehill corn oil fortune. Life is seldom normal in Marblehead Manor. Along with Randolf's wife, Hillary, Jerry the Chauffeur, Duane the Handy Man, Lupe the Cook, Lupe's son Elvis, and Rick the Gardener comic misunderstandings abound. The inhabitants of Marblehead Manor also have a habit of dressing up as other people to comic effect. Written by

I knew Michael Richards long before Seinfeld was ever thought of, because of Marblehead Manor. Paxton Whitehead was the ever comical butler who's catchphrase "yes...Madam" always stole the scenes he was in. Many of Richards' mannerisms came to light in this series that later made him so famous on Seinfeld, his underlying silliness ever ready to pour out at a moment's notice that would leave you laughing for hours afterward... One scene involved a woman in a skirt who accidentally got into a mishap, revealing her underwear. Richards' character went through the episode chanting "....blue underpants" in sheer amazement. Priceless comedy. Linda Thorson played the ever proper lady of the house that employed everyone, sometimes unaware of the crazy antics that Whitehead and Richards had gotten the Manor into. In short, terrific comedy that deserved a MUCH longer lifespan than the one season it was given. A must-see when it is available on DVD.
