Did You Know?


In the show's opening (beginning with the sixth season), a toddler walks up to Joyce DeWitt as she is feeding a goat. The toddler is Jason Ritter (son of John Ritter). This is revealed by DeWitt in a bonus feature of the Season 4 DVD. See more »


In Three's Company: Eleanor's Return, Larry says he served four years in the United States Marine Corps, whose recruit training includes combat training including hand to hand combat. Also, given his age, it's likely he served in Vietnam. So, even if he served in a non-combat role he would have, at least, intermediate self defense skills. However, in several episodes like Three's Company: Dying to Meet You and Three's Company: Urban Plowboy Larry seems either afraid to fight or unable to fight. See more »


Cindy Snow: If my man was cheating on me I'd break every bone in his body!
Jack Tripper: You'll do that on your wedding night.

Alternate Versions

In March 2001 viewers watching reruns of the series on Nick at Nite reported that in episode 8.11 "The Charming Stranger", John Ritter's genitals could be briefly seen slipping out of his blue boxers when his character throws himself on bed. Nickelodeon confirmed this goof and announced that the scene would be edited out of all future airings of that episode. See more »

Greatest comedy show of all time
1 October 2004 | by mercyfulfate7410See all my reviews

I remember watching this when I was about 4 or 5 and just loving the theme song then, but now I can really appreciate it for soooo many other things. How a guy like Jack Tripper can get into so many hilarious predicaments is beyond me, but John Ritter (RIP) pulled off the character perfectly. No one else could have taken his place. He just had so much energy and really got into it and took physical comedy to a new level, and that would make a scene even funnier than it should of been. And Larry, either landlord, Janet and any of the blondes just added to the hilarity. Can't wait till' season 3 is out on DVD. Give me three's company any day instead any of these pointless, thoughtless reality shows.
