Episode Guide

Welcome to the Episode Guide. Here you will find a complete listing of all “Newhart” episodes, divided by season. Eventually, each episode will have its own page containing a plot summary, a screencap gallery, memorable quotes, trivia, and an opportunity for you to rate the episode.

Episode pages will be added randomly (I will be skipping around from season to season instead of going in chronological order) — however, you may request certain episodes by leaving a comment via the form below.

SEASON 1 (1982-1983) *Last updated 4/28/11*
Dick and Joanna Loudon move to Vermont and buy the colonial-era Stratford Inn. Series regulars for Season 1 include handyman George Utley, habitual liar Kirk Devane, and heiress-turned-maid Leslie Vanderkellen (in her only season with the show). Future regulars Stephanie Vanderkellen, Larry, Darryl and Darryl make guest appearances. Critical consensus is that this first season is somewhat weak and still in search of an identity (compared to other, zanier seasons). This was also the only season to be shot on videotape.

SEASON 2 (1983-1984) no episode pages up yet
Series regulars include Dick, Joanna, George, Kirk and Stephanie (who replaces Leslie as the Stratford’s resident heiress-turned-maid). Future regular Michael Harris makes guest appearances as producer of Dick’s new TV show “Vermont Today.” Larry, Darryl and Darryl make several more guest appearances. Kirk meets and marries Cindy, a professional clown (and both depart at the end of the season). This is also the first season to be shot on film.

SEASON 3 (1984-1985) *Last updated 4/17/11*
Series regulars include Dick, Joanna, George, Stephanie and Michael (who is now Stephanie’s love interest). There are also frequent guest appearances by Larry, Darryl and Darryl (the new owners of Kirk’s Minuteman Cafe).

SEASON 7 (1988-1989) no episode pages up yet
No changes to the main cast. Joanna goes into the real estate business. This season also features Stephanie and Michael’s break-up and Michael’s subsequent breakdown and stint in a mental institution (a rather dramatic multi-episode arc).

SEASON 8 (1989-1990) *Last updated 4/22/11*
No changes to the main cast. This, the show’s final season, ends with one of the most famous finales in television history.
