In addition to being one fo the greatest shows of all time, The Bob Newhart Show also delivered plenty of minis. Of course, 1972 was a big year for miniskirts in the US, so nearly every show that year had its fair share. But The Bob Newhart Show is special...
Take a look at season one. Every time the camera shows the office elevator, there is a girl in a mini skirt in it - without fail. Plus, the swinging bachelors, Jerry and Howard (pictured above), were often found with a pretty miniskirted lass at their side. And let's not forget the secretary, Carol. Sure, she wasn't much of a looker, but she still somehow rocked the mini skirt every single week. It would be a pretty cool drinking game to take a drink every time somebody says "Hi, Bob" (the show's catch phrase) and every time you spotted a miniskirt. You'd be wasted by the end of thirty minutes.
Oddly enough, Emily Hartley never wore a mini - which is strange considering Susanne Pleshette was a popular sex symbol for years. She was only 35 when the show started, so it's not as if she was too old.
Anyway, take a look at a small gallery of screen shots.... and keep an eye out for Penny Marshall.
