The Hendersons were a typical sitcom family living in the Pacific Northwest who owned an unusual pet: a real live Sasquatch. While on a camping trip, the Hendersons found Bigfoot, and brought him back to their house to live with them. Problems ensue while trying to repair the damage caused by Harry's curious nature, and while trying to keep his existence a secret. Written by

This show is awful for mainly one reason: it's a dramedy, meaning it can't decide if it was a lighthearted family comedy or something dramatic. Sadly, it wasn't able to do this very well so you're left with an unfunny show about a family going through 'the perils of modern day life' with the missing link as their witty butler...if he could talk or you could care.
So demonstrate, here's how each episode went:
1) Situation introduced (sometimes by the Bigfoot) 2) Situation gets worse (again, sometimes by the Bigfoot) 3) Situation resolved (never by the Bigfoot because he's usually used as blackmail or such) 4) Harry blunders into a 'touching' scene where nature is good and everybody is happy that they're so close to nature, etc.
Imagine that ad infinitum for three syndicated years and you'll know why this isn't fondly remembered. At the very least, it's just getting more money out of a forgotten movie that nobody cares about.
