“The Boy Who Cried Goat” (from an episode of “Newhart”)
“The Boy Who Cried Coati” (from an episode of “Nebus”)
This causes me to learn there were two episodes of Newhart with ‘goat’ in the title, compared to zero for The Bob Newhart Show or Bob. I’m not saying this is going to make me re-rank the various Bob Newhart shows but it is a thing to consider when they come up for re-evaluation.
What about that episode of “Pink Bunny and Joseph” with guests Bob Newhart,Jack Klugman,Carol Burnett, and Gus Wheeler’s Trained Goats?
Oh no, no, there’s so little that anyone could learn from my nonsense that I couldn’t be a fable worth anything. Sorry. Best I can offer is some anecdotes.
