This FOX comedy show starred Herman, a young fact checker. Whenever Herman had a thought, various conflicting aspects of his psyche were personified and interacted in a cluttered, attic-like room, meant to represent his mind. Predictably, the sophomoric humor was not subtle. Written by

One of the show's writers used to hang out on a BBS forum for Fox shows when this was still on the air. He said that if the show had survived into a fourth season, there was going to be a second set of head characters introduced, this time for the "Heddy" character. This obviously never happened, as the show was canceled after its third season. See more »
[Herman's apartment has been robbed]
Look at what they did to my apartment! Someone is going to pay for this.
I think it's going to be you, Herm.

When the Fox Network went on the air, it seemed like it was trying to attract viewers with "something different". The result was shows like "Herman's Head".
Although it featured a "Dobie Gillis" like situation--an ambitious bombshell who was "unattainable" and an "ordinary" girl who was sweet, but really loved him, this show added something way out of the ordinary: A "Greek chorus" that revealed his "true" thoughts, instead of Herman giving asides to the camera.
A nice touch was including in the chorus a female to give his "feminine" side.
This nice touch pulled this rather ordinary sitcom out of the muck and gave it a nice spin that worked most of the time.
Its too bad Fox did not keep up this phase, because I believe television would have been much the better for it.
