Newhart has been a part of the American comedy landscape since 1961 when his debut comedy album The Button-Down Mind of Bob Newhart became a surprise hit. Since then he's starred in three TV shows, including the Peabody-award winning The Bob Newhart Show which premiered in 1972 and ran for six seasons. And he has appeared in numerous films. The first season of The Bob Newhart Show is now out on DVD. This interview was originally broadcast on June 9, 1998.
