Embarrassing Aussie sitcom whose lead character was a talking dog.
I remember "THE BOB MORRISON SHOW", not really so much because it featured a talking dog, but because it was so incredibly awful!
Yes, this television gem could only have been thought up from where else but Down Under. Bob Morrison was the name of the dog. I forget what breed it was, but I remember that it was white. And when I say that this dog 'talks', I mean that Bob Morrison 'thinks his thoughts aloud' so that everyone can hear it. For example, someone would do or say something stupid to him and he would just sit there and look at that person with his big brown puppy dog eyes while a 'voice over' would talk his thought aloud (usually some dry witty snap) and the laugh track would go off hysterically.
Bob Morrison was no Marmaduke. No, this dog had more personality than the dull cast members grouped together. Nicki Coghill was in this show - fresh off her stint from the then 'just canceled' "FLYING DOCTORS". After seeing her turn in this sitcom, let's just say that she should stick to portraying dramatic roles.
This show didn't even last one season (it wasn't hard to see why). Instead, Channel 7 decided to feed "THE BOB MORRISON SHOW" to the dogs, a move that was applauded by everyone. Personally, I would have preferred to have watched the entire series re-run of "ALF" than this trash.
This show really was a dog!
