I've been on a Bob Newhart kick lately.

I just love him. His book was good too.

I adore Bob Newhart. He and Suzanne Pleshette were perfect together.

Funny ... I was thinking of Larry, Darryl and Darryl recently!

by Anonymousreply 201/06/2013

I liked how real their marriage was and how he wasn't above making Bob a bit of a shithead who wasn't great at his job.

He's still performing - he's got a show scheduled at some casino near me this month.

Glad yo hear you liked his book OP. I downloaded it a few weeks ago and couldnt get into it. Will try again.

Oh Bob!

He has a gorgeous hairy chest as well.

by Anonymousreply 701/06/2013

You know he and Pleshette always creeped me out watching it as a kid because she was sooo gorgeous and sexy and poor Bob was short, balding, pudgy and asexual. Watching reruns now I think they had great chemistry, in an episode I saw recently they sat on the sofa and crossed their legs simultaneously like the Rockettes!! I'm enjoying and appreciating the show much more now but I still can't imagine him being able to handle a woman like Pleshette in the sack!!!

They were the first sitcom couple to sleep in the same bed. I bet he was hung large and knew what to do with a clit.

I like Bob Newhart and his comedy, too.

Too bad when can never have that again. We seem to be in some swamp of Charlie Sheen Honey Boo Boo Howard Stern Rush Limbaugh Kardashian Kanye West Intervention Hoarders.

One of my favorite sitcom lines is from an episode where Howard's brother was going to visit. He was telling Bob and Emily about him describing his job, etc. After he left Bob and Emily slowly repeated "He's Game Warden Gordon Borden from Oregon!" and cracked up. So fantastically absurd. I think the shows are on Youtube. I should check them out.

I thought Mike and Carol Brady were one if the first to share a bed.

by Anonymousreply 1501/06/2013

Samantha and Darrin shared a bed since Season One in 1964.

I'd like to kick Bob Newhart too.

by Anonymousreply 1701/06/2013

He and Suzanne were so good together. One of the best episodes was where Bob found out Emily's IQ was higher than his.

Newhart trivia game

by Anonymousreply 2001/06/2013

I got the DVDs years ago and listened to them as I dozed off. They are funny and yet very comforting at the same time. They still haven't released the final 2 seasons on DVD and I don't think Fox (IIRC - it's Fox) is about to either. I love the first Newhart show.

The IQ episode is maybe my favorite, too. I also love the one where Emily redecorated the apt and he hated it.

Up for Bob.

Hi Bob.

Good friends with Don Rickles in real life.

Total class act.

It's "Hi, Bob!" (DRINK!) R23.

by Anonymousreply 2501/07/2013

I was about 12 the first time I saw him -- on the Ed Sullivan Show, as the night watchman at the Empire State Bldg on the phone with his boss while King Kong is climbing up the side. Loved him ever since.

If you like a balding fat ass who stutters he was funny.

"Son of a gun, gonna have big fun, Emily..."

I loved his dry wit and the finale of "Newhart" is one of the best sitcom moments ever.

by Anonymousreply 2901/07/2013

Too bad it was already done on Dallas and a hundred other shows before.

by Anonymousreply 3001/07/2013

I downloaded his memoir on my kindle. Boy is it bad.

by Anonymousreply 3101/07/2013

It was parodying those shows, R31.

And nobody did it the way Newhart did it.

by Anonymousreply 3201/07/2013

I loved his book. He's great. He also had a really nice ass and legs on Newhart.

by Anonymousreply 3301/07/2013

Who keeps claiming he was fat? He never was, even in those tight 70s Sansabelt slacks.

The Bob Newhart Show, just like MTM show, is one of very few sitcoms from the seventies that I can watch today and enjoy (I was way too young to remember them in their original run.) Just a well-written, genuinely funny comedy which wasn't trying to hit you with a heavy handed political or social message, which is likely the reason it has aged so well.

by Anonymousreply 3501/07/2013

R34 - He was a little chubby. Suzanne wasn't a stick either.

by Anonymousreply 3601/07/2013

R34 He had thin legs but he carried a lot of weight in his abdomen. He was straight from shoulder to ankle - no waist in those suits and he had a loose jawline and double chin. I watched an episode called backlash recently. And Bob looked in his early 60s in it. That said I do love the show and his humor but to suggest he was slim and or attractive??!?

Amy Winehouse died of "accidental" alcohol poisoning, as determined by a SECOND inquest. Of course her parents say they will hold inquest after inquest, till it is determined she died of murder.

by Anonymousreply 3801/08/2013

I hate Amy Winehouse, she is a whore.

by Anonymousreply 3901/08/2013

The first inquest was fake cause the coroner was a fake. I think she was just a booze hound

by Anonymousreply 4001/08/2013

Can't stand Newhart.

by Anonymousreply 4101/08/2013

where can you see how hairy Bob Newhart is? love to see his hairy chest and back??

by Anonymousreply 4204/04/2014

Stinks of Susan I mean Suzanne.

by Anonymousreply 4304/04/2014

I grew up on "Newhart." It's pretty shaky the first season (god, that Leslie killed comedy in every scene she was in), starts to get its bearing the second season (when they introduce Stephanie) and then became one of the funniest, nuttiest sotcoms after "Green Acres."

I like "The Bob Newhart Show" but prefer "Newhart." And no two shows have ever tied up as well as these two did.

Why has this fan been hijacked by Amy Winehouse gossip?

by Anonymousreply 4504/04/2014

Because they know that she's no good, R45.

by Anonymousreply 4604/04/2014

Newhart is hung.

by Anonymousreply 4704/04/2014

OMG, r45's fan is haunted by the ghost of Amy Winehouse! Unplug it now, before it vomits all over your carpet!
