Trivia

During the run of Bob Newhart's previous series, Newhart (1982), he appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson (1962) and joked with Johnny Carson that since other permutations of his name had already been used for his TV shows' titles, his next series would probably just be called "Bob" - which is exactly what happened.

Bob Newhart as Cartoonist in "Bob" was a super show
18 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I cannot call the series "Bob" one of the greatest ever, only because the fools at CBS didn't realize what a gem they had, changing almost everything after the first season, then cancelling it halfway through the second season.

For the first year, Bob was hilarious, with the same formula practiced on "The Bob Newhart Show" and on "Newhart", and, in my opinion, better success than on "Newhart." The actress (Cynthia Stephenson) who played his daughter added a delightful presence to the series. I'll never forget her line after her mother had committed a major blunder destroying a valuable item of Bob's. Speaking to the family cat, she lamented, "It's too bad that Mom can't live with us anymore." I consider "Newhart" to have been a fine show, and "Bob Newhart" one of the ten greatest comedies of all time. "Bob" had a first season that would have let it join those ranks, had it only lasted long enough.
