Jerry Seinfeld stars in this television comedy series as himself, a comedian. The premise of this sitcom is Jerry and his friends going through everyday life, discussing various quirky situations, to which we can all relate (especially if we live in New York City). The eccentric personalities of the offbeat characters who make up Jerry's social circle contribute to the fun.

In season four, episode six, "The Watch", Elaine Benes (Julia Louis-Dreyfus
) was asked by Joe Davola (Peter Crombie
) if he knows her from somewhere, and she answers with a joke that he probably recognizes her because her face is sculptured on Mount Rushmore, alongside the U.S. Presidents, instead of Roosevelt's face. In 2015, a poster was released for the fourth season of Veep
(2012) that showed the face of Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus
) sculptured on Mount Rushmore, but it appeared instead of Jefferson's face. See more
Jerry's apartment building looks to have earthquake retrofitting on the exterior (several square steel plates which are anchors for cables) Actually, that is what it is. When I first saw it, our company was bidding in earnest around the time after the Whittier quake and that is what the finished product looked like. Native to Los Angeles and California only. See more
I'm like the Phoenix, rising from Arizona.
The series does not have an opening credits sequence. Instead, the lead actor credits play out over a scene. Now commonplace in sitcoms and drama series, this was considered a novelty in 1990 and sparked a debate over the future of opening credits in TV series. See more
'Larry David' was the original voice of Newman in "The Revenge", but 'Wayne Knight' overdubbed the voice for syndication. Both versions are available in the Season 2 DVD set. See more
