Trivia

The set of the sitcom (the lavish Nutt Hotel) was actually the set built for the movie Big Business (1988). The producers of the movie couldn't get the rights to film inside the actual Plaza Hotel in Manhattan, so had it recreated on sound stages, and built "The Nutt House" around it to try and recoup construction costs. Unfortunately, it proved an expensive flop. See more »

Hilarious
22 January 2006 | by (Scranton, PA) – See all my reviews

"The Nutt House" with Cloris Leachman (Phyllis from "The Mary Tyler Moore Show") and Harvey Korman (from "The Carol Burnett Show") is truly an underrated gem. It was broadcast on ABC for about one month in 1989. If you blinked, you missed it. This show was full of funny and witty dialogue, zany sight gags and screwball antics. I think its humor was way ahead of its time, but unfortunately it was never given a chance to find an audience.

A DVD release would be wonderful. Or maybe a mini-marathon on TV Land. This might help to get the word out on this great, hilarious Mel Brooks series!
