    Wanda Talbert (Connie Sellecca) and Joey Paciorek (Greg Evigan) had been unlikely and unenthusiastic partners in an N.Y.P.D. sting operation that had gone bad. She was a con artist and, to keep from going to prison, agreed to set up a mobster, and he was a detective coordinating the operation. When it fell apart, she would have to testify against him, and that will not take place for a few years, she and Joey entered the witness protection program and were relocated to Palm Springs, California to hide from the vengeful mobster. Once they assumed the identities of Dani and Cody Powell, a "married" couple working for Palm Security and Investigations, a local security and detective agency. Matthew Durning (Earl Holliman), who ran the agency, was the only one who knew who they really were. Cody and Dani spent most of their time working cases for P.S.I. and fighting with each other. The combination of an honest, analytical cop and a creative con artist, even though they didn't like each other much, made them a very effective team. Dani even managed to convince Durning to let them stay in a huge mansion, whose owner was almost never in Palm Springs, as live-in security guards.

    Every week (well, most of the time...) a character from the Disney Pantheon hosts the series with a lesson on their area of expertease. Or at least they TRY to teach a lesson...The host then leads the episode into the show's three regular segments:

    HE'S BONKERS! - These were the shorts that Bonkers D. Bobcat was making before he got fired and became a police officer. Bonkers often has a deadline he has to meet, but in the process he winds up causing a lot of pain for his sidekick, Jitters A. Dog. But appreciation from the lovely Fawn Deer keeps him going.

    TOTALLY TASTELESS VIDEOS - Parodies of various movies and TV shows.

    MARSUPILAMI - Andre Franquin's popular character stars in his own shorts, here a wacky jungle creature with a best friend named Maurice the Ape and an arch-villain named Norman

    Only 12 episodes were made of this fairly unpopular series. However, two of the shorts continued on in their own series afterwards. Marsupilami got his own show as did Bonkers.

    The series later aired on Toon Disney for a few years but currently no longer airs in the US.moreless

    CBS (ended 1990)
    Four years after the end of his long-running sitcom, Bob Newhart returned to series television for another eight years on this brilliantly funny, often surreal sitcom. In it, Newhart played Dick Loudon, a writer of how-to books who buys a Vermont inn, The Stratford Inn, with his wife Joanna. Leslie Vanderkellen was the priviliged maid working her way through college, George Utley was the somewhat dim-witted handyman, and Kirk Devane was the deceptive owner of the rundown Minuteman Cafe next door. In 1983, Leslie was replaced by her spoiled and shallow cousin Stephanie. That same year, Kirk married Cindy, a circus clown, and they moved to Europe at the beginning of the third season in 1984. In March of 1984, Dick became host of a low-rated local talk show entitled "Vermont Today," produced by shallow baby boomer schlockmeister Michael Harris. Michael and Stephanie later fell in love and eventually married and had a baby, also named Stephanie. The unnamed Vermont village that provided this show's setting was populated by eccentric characters such as Chester Wanamaker, who later became mayor, Jim Dixon, his addle-pated sidekick, Bev Dutton, the no-nonsense manager of Channel 8 (from which "Vermont Today" originated), and Larry, Darryl and Darryl, three surprisingly cultured woodsmen.

    Nineteen year-old Christy Huddleston decides to leave a sheltered life of luxury in 1912 Asheville to serve as a teacher in a remote mission schoolhouse in the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. Young and naïve but optimistic, she finds herself in the midst of overwhelming poverty, ignorance and superstition, yet also surrounded by great beauty, faith and love. Even as Christy wrestles against seemingly impossible odds to make a difference in her schoolchildren's lives, she is emotionally torn between the attentions of two very different men: Reverend David Grantland, a young, outspoken and idealistic minister from Boston, and Dr. Neil MacNeill, a man with a painful past, born and raised in Cutter Gap, now a physician working hard to establish the benefits of 20th century medicine in a place where folklore and herbalism prevail.

The members of the Recording Academy vote on who they think is most deserving of an award in 108 categories as specified by the academy. Each year the awards are presented during a live telecast that was begun in 1971 by ABC, but has since been televised by CBS after they bought it in 1973. They were initially known as the Gramophone Awards this is because the trophy itself is a golden gramophone but later they became the Grammys.moreless
