Bob - Comic Book Hero 'Mad-Dog' Joins Bob Newhart on the Cover of 'The Complete Series' for the '92 Sitcom


Newhart's joined by Betty White and Lisa Kudrow over the course of one-and-a-half seasons

    Bob Newhart portrays Bob McKay, the creator of the 1950s comic book superhero "Mad-Dog." When a Senate sub-committee decided such reading material could corrupt young readers, Mad-Dog faded into oblivion. Bob became a greeting card artist, and years later Mad-Dog is revived when the American-Canadian Trans-Continental Communications Company buys the rights to the series.

    Complications ensued when AmCanTranConComCo head Harlan Stone (John Cygan) insists Mad-Dog should be a bloodthirsty vigilante rather than the hero Bob originally created. Bob initially turns down Harlan's offer to revive the series with the publisher, but after his wife, Kaye (Carlene Watkins) reminded Bob that Mad-Dog would never give up dreams in the face of defeat, he decides to compromise with Harlan on creative direction, and the two became a team.
Since another studio hasn't made any headway on un-stalling DVD releases of either The Bob Newhart Show or Newhart, the folks at CBS/Paramount have pulled out a Bob Newhart sitcom from 1992 and dusted it off for fans to enjoy on DVD! Bob - The Complete Series has been announced for a street date of April 3rd, with all 33 episodes of the shows one-and-a-half seasons collected into a 781 minute set. Video is full frame, and audio is English stereo with English subtitles included as well. Package art is below.

The first season cast included John Cygan (The Commish), Carlene Watkins (Best of the West), Cynthia Stevenson (Dead Like Me), Lisa Kudrow (Friends), Tom Poston (Newhart), Dorothy Lyman (Mama's Family) and Dick Martin (Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In). After a format change in the second season, the cast also changed. Then you saw Betty White (Golden Girls), Jere Burns (Dear John) and Megan Cavanagh (A League of Their Own). And here you see the package art for this title!
