Bob Newhart and company invite you to check in to the Stratford Inn for Newhart: Season 3, a delightful collection of some of the 1980s' finest television comedy. All 22 episodes from the Emmy-nominated third season are here to deliver the off-kilter, character-based comedy that endeared Newhart to critics and audiences alike.
Dick Loudon (Newhart) and his wife Joanna (Mary Frann) have their hands full running their quaint colonial inn. In addition to the seemingly never-ending parade of unusual guests, they must contend with the quirky antics of their employees and friends: the spoiled maid Stephanie (Julia Duffy), dim-bulb handyman George (Tom Poston), and the back(wards)woodsmen Larry, Darryl, and Darryl (William Sanderson, Tony Papenfuss, and John Voldstad.) And to top it off, Dick has become the host of the small-time talk show "Vermont Today," produced by the upwardly-mobile Michael (Peter Scolari).
The third season of the sitcom's eight-season run saw Peter Scolari (Girls, Bosom Buddies
) formally join the cast after his character, "Michael Harris," appeared in two episodes during the show's second year on the air. At the beginning of this month we passed along word
that this season was coming to DVD on April 22nd
, and now Shout! Factory has formally confirmed that Newhart - The Complete 3rd Season
will be available in stores on that date.
Cost is verified at $29.93 SRP, and this will be a 3-disc set with episodes that are closed captioned. Cover art and an Amazon pre-order link can be found just below. Our thanks to reader Chad Taylor for his great help with this story! AND, for you big Bob fans, don't forget that Shout! is also preparing a giant six-season release of his earlier sitcom, The Bob Newhart Show - The Complete Series
, scheduled for May 27th. Stay tuned for more info and artwork about that one!
