The Bob Newhart Show (1972)

Show generally

Other mistake: In the opening credits, Bob answers the phone. None of the buttons light up when the phone rings. On that style of phone, the light would indicate which line to answer. The phone is obviously a prop.

Character mistake: In episode 1.19, Howard Borden goes to Bob's office and says it's the first time he's been there. In fact, he had come to the office to address Bob's "fear of flying" group in the first episode.

Deliberate mistake: The circular desk where Carol sits should be rotated 180 degrees so she is facing the elevators. How many times have you gotten off an elevator in a fancy office building only to see the back of the receptionist's head?

Trivia: While Bob Newhart is a father himself, he was adamant about Bob Hartley not having any children. When the writers told him they wanted to introduce a child in season six, he told them the script was good, and then asked them who was going to play Bob.
