The Newhart TV Show has a connection with The Bob Newhart Show which was also aired on CBS from 1972-1978 and the two shows were focused on Newhart's character.
In this series, Dick Loudon (the character portrayed by Bob Newhart) and his wife, Joanna (played by Mary Frann), moved from Manhattan to a small town in rural Vermont to manage the classic Stradford Inn. Dick Loudon is an author of how-to books who becomes a host of the low-rated TV Show called "Vermont Today". As the story of the show progresses, it's focusing mainly on Dick's hosting career and his odd townsfolk. Newhart features several unforgettable characters including Leslie Vanderkellen as maid, George Utley as handyman, Kirk Devane as the owner of the Minuteman Cafe, and the characters of Larry, Darryl and Darryl.
