Newhart, 1982-90
This time, Bob Newhart played Dick Loudon, an author, who bought a small Vermont hotel. His wife, Joanna, was played by Mary Frann. And, talk about quirky residents of the area!
There was Larry, his brother Darryl and his other brother Darryl. The handyman, George Utley (Tom Poston)was kind-hearted but bumbling. (In real life, Poston was married to Pleshette)



In the final show, a Japanese investors buy the whole town of Stratford, except for the Loudon’s Inn. The investors bought the town and built the golf course around the Inn. Five years later, the ex- villagers return for a reunion . It becomes chaotic, the Darryl brothers speak for the first time, yelling “quiet!” at their wives. Dick leaves the party and is knocked unconscious by an errant golf ball. He wakes up in bed with his wife (Suzanne Pleshette) from the Bob Newhart Show. It’s all been a dream! The final scene was kept from the actors and most of the crew.



Moonlight in Vermont, written in 1944, This is Ella Fitzgerald &Frank Sinatra’s version



Pennies in a stream
Falling leaves the sycamore
Moonlight in Vermont



Icy finger waves
Ski trails down the mountain side
Snow light in Vermont



Telegraph cables, they sing down the highway
And travel each bend and the road
People who meet in this romantic setting
Are so hypnotized by the lovely



Evening summer breeze
Evening summer breeze
Warbling of the meadowlark
The sweet warbling of the meadowlark
Moonlight in Vermont


(Professor Proton From The Big Bang Theory)

Icy finger waves

Snow light in Vermont

Telegraph cables, how they sing down the highway
As they make every bend in the road
People who meet, in this romantic setting
Are so hypnotized by the lovely



Evening summer breeze
Evening summer breeze
The sweet warbling of the meadowlark
Moonlight in Vermont, snow light in Vermont
Moonlight in Vermont
Evening and moonlight in Vermont
