Show Summary

A situation comedy centered on Caroline Duffy, a young cartoonist living in the Tribeca neighborhood of New York City. Each episode begins with a brief animated sequence reflecting the autobiographical nature of her syndicated newspaper cartoon strip Caroline in the City, explicitly compared with the real comic strip Cathy in several episodes. The first season hinged on the complicated romantic relationship between Caroline and Del, a divorced hunk with commitment problems, and a slowly evolving, understated romantic attraction between Caroline and Richard, her cynical colorist who, as a aspiring painter, is embarrassed by his job and at first resists becoming entangled in Caroline's personal life but slowly realizes he is falling in love with her. Comic relief is provided by Caroline's neighbor and best friend Annie, a professional dancer trapped in the endless run of Cats and an endless succession of unsuccessful relationships with men, and Del's bizarre underling Charlie.

    Caroline in the City was a funny sitcom about a girl named Caroline, a cartoonist, living in New York City and interacting with her friends and co workers. This was a really good show that reminds me how much better network television once was than it is now. My wife and I began watching this show when it first came on the air in 1995. We had recently bought our first house and the early months of this show bring back memories of the 5-6 months before we got cable television installed there. Caroline and her friend Annie were always making near normal situations look funny. We miss this one and would like to see it's reruns pop up on cable sometime. I remember that if I had to work later that night my wife would always tape this show on the VCR for us to watch together.moreless
  • A short lived sitcom from the 90s whose biggest problem was probably coming out a couple of years after Friends, so it was never going to be able to compete. Still great to watch.moreless

    Caroline in the City is about a 30 year old woman from a small town who moved to New York and became a cartoonist. Ever the optimist she's joined by Richard Karinsky, a miserable, broke artist whose personality is the polar opposite of hers. Her on off relationship with Del, her boss in a greeting card company that sells her cards, is the focus of the first series. The cast is rounded off by Annie, the New York native woman from Italian decent who is a dancer in Cats and loves men a little too much and Charlie, the lovable but dim go-for in Del's company.



    I think this show suffered from two problems; being created a year or two after Friends, which had pretty much taken over the world, and with a similar plot (thirty somethings rather than twenty somethings living through love issues in New York) and the introduction of Julia at the end of series 2, a character we're not supposed to like and many viewers didn't. This is unfortunate because the characters are very well rounded and the writing is brilliant at times. The writing flagged a bit towards the end but was still funny, although Charlie could be irritating at times.



    The little cartoons at the start of the first series were quite funny but didn't make the cut in later series. The concept was resurrected a bit in the final series with the introduction of the Ferret Boys, another cartoon whose creators work with Caroline.



    All in all a great show, a great cast and obviously popular at the time judging by the number of guest stars they had over the years. Well worth watching and the only thing that really shows its age now is the frequent video tapes Richard rents, which would be DVDs now.



    It varies from great to dull and suffers from a non ending since the show was cancelled suddenly, apparently without even the cast's knowledge so they never managed to go back and finish the storylines. I call it a guilty pleasure because not many people know I watch it, and even fewer people I know remember it. I don't think it was even shown in the UK after a few episodes into series 2 so I had to rent the DVDs to see the rest, so I've only recently rediscovered the show. I was about 13 when the show first came out and I liked it because Malcolm Gets, who plays Richard, looks like my first boyfriend who I was with at the time.moreless

    The is one of the best shows ever! One of my all-time favorites. Please bring it back!!!!!! I need to know what happens to Caroline and Richard! PLEASE!!! I love this show!(duh.) The charcters are so... I don't know how to descibe them. Great. How 'bout that? The actors and actresses are sooo good! They aren't fake and I keep forgetting it's just a sitcom. Caroline is so funny and a lovable character. Richard, my favorite character even though he married Julia, ugh, is a pure breed pessimist. He never looks on the bright side of things and he's constantly having bad luck. But his bad luck just makes the show that much better.

    I can't believe they cancelled the show. Please bring it back!!!! Please?moreless
