Best of the West

Does anyone else out there remember Best of the West? It was a Western sitcom from the creators of Taxi and Cheers, but it only lasted one year. I used to think it was hysterical back when I was a kid.  And to this day, whenever I see this guy I think to myself..."Hey, it's Froggy from Best of the West!"

Then again, I'm a bit odd.

I remember this! It was kind of a twist on the "Green Acres fish out of water" theme, right ?
And everytime I see that guy, I think of Miller from Repo Man!

This has jogged my memory of a show called "Up All Night" about a family that worked in a 7-11 type store.It lasted half a season, but I remember thinking it was hilarious!It was a Mom and Dad and their adult son, who was a doofus. George Dzundza was the Dad, Susan Tyrell was the Mom,and Sam Whipple was the son.

Not sure why I felt the need to share all that.

Not only did a young Slyde watch this show in its entirety when it was on the air (ABC, if i remember), but to this day i ALWAYS consider that guy as Froggy....

Sybil - just a bit. :)

Paticus - I remember that one too, although I don't think I would have if you hadn't brought it up.

Slyde - Wow...the rare bit of agreement from you. I'm touched. No...not there, you sicko!

RW - I dig. I missed almost all of whatever the networks were running in the early 90's.

Diva - I saw that too and was wondering if anyone was gonna be rude enough to make the connection. ;)

I can't say I remember this one.

Does that mean I am not odd? :)

Appears to be the Epitath of the TV Western. This reminded me of a line of Marx toys that were centered around a television character named Johnny West. The toys were also referred to as 'Best of the West', although I beleive there was no correclation to a television show with them.
