The Bob Newhart Show (NBC)




The Bob Newhart Show
 1961 | NBC Television

Bob Newhart of NBC’s The Bob Newhart Show is a person whose gentle satire and wry and irreverent wit waft a breath of fresh and bracing air through the stale and stuffy electronic corridors. A merry marauder who looks less like St. George than a choirboy, Newhart has wounded, if not slain, many of the dragons that stalk our society. In a troubled and apprehensive world, Newhart has proved once again that laughter is the best medicine. In recognition and appreciation, the Peabody Award for television entertainment.
