    Wonderful show. It got canceled too soon. I was always under the impression that Herb was based upon Bob Braun and Les Nessman, Al Schottelkotte

    Lewy Bodies is what got Robin Williams...and an uncle on my wife's side. Not a good thing to get

    One of the best shows on TV in 70's. It had a great set of characters and Herb Tarlic(Frank Bonner) was one of them that made it that way. RIP Frank Bonner
