"Newhart" theme music by Henry Mancini

Premise/Background:
In 1982, Bob Newhart brought his patented stutter and unique timing back
to network audiences with "Newhart," which ran until September of 1990.
With the advent of the new show, most TV afficionados expected Bob Newhart
to act like, well, Bob Newhart. And that's just what he did. But the real
question was whether Bob's dryer-than-dry delivery would work in a rural
environment, far from the slick setting of Chicago, where his last show
took place.
Much to the delight of audiences, network executives, and Bob Newhart
himself, it did work. Newhart played Dick Loudon, a "how-to" book writer
from New York who decided to practice what he preached by moving into and
renovating a Vermont Inn built in 1774.
For Dick and his wife Joanna, it isn't the Inn that's high-maintenance
--it's the townsfolk that accompany it. Each character seems to have more
than a few screws loose.
George Utley, whose ancestors have been caretakers in the area for more
than 200 years, is needy.
Kirk, who runs a nearby cafe/giftshop, is a compulsive liar.
Stephanie, the maid, is a rich, spoiled brat, just like her cousin Leslie.
who abandons the maid job after a year. Weirdest of all
The three brothers who drift in and out of the Loudons' lives.Two of them
are named Darryl. Neither Darryl nor Darryl speaks; that chore goes to
their fraternal leader, Larry.
Eventually, Dick branches out into local television and ends up with more
nuts on his hands, the worst of them being Michael Harris. Michael not
only produces Dick's show, but ends up marrying his maid.
