Hello from Milwaukee -- home of cheese, breweries, and the great Bob Uecker. Known as Mr. Baseball, Uecker is the longtime voice of the Brewers and star of TV's MR. BELVEDERE. Everyone I know knows that show but no one I know has ever sat through an entire episode of it. And yet it was on for years.
I found the opening titles of the show along with a bunch of others from 1986. It's startling how alike the sitcom openings were (and cheesier than Wisconsin). Random zany and touching clips from episodes and God awful treacly theme songs. It's GOLDEN GIRLS gone bad then worse than worse still.
So here they are (starting with MR. BELVEDERE). It will take some of you down memory lane. Others will be pushed into a mine shaft. A couple of these shows are jaw dropping, notably LIFE WITH LUCY. All I can say about that show was the main titles were the least embarrassing thing about it.
Along the way you'll also discover some actors who went on to bigger and better things.
So here they are. And for everybody who says they love the 80s, this might be the ultimate test.
