  • This is a classic comedy show about the Petrie family. Rob Petrie is a comedy writer and you also will see him at work at the office.

    To call this show a classic is almost a slam. This is the story of Rob Petrie (Dick Van Dyke), Laura Petrie (Mary Tyler Moore) and their son Richie (Larry Mathews). The show mainly focuses on the family and their guests at home (these people threw more parties than anyone I know) and Rob's work as a comedy writer. Rob worked with Maurice "Buddy" Sorrell (Morey Amsterdam) and Sally Rogers (Rose Marie). Their stiff boss Melvin Cooley challenged them daily. He is always after them to get something done and he and buddy torment each other constantly. The three all work for Alan Brady as writers for the fictional Alan Brady Show. Carl Reiner who played Alan Brady on the show-within-a-show was the creator and producer of the actual show.
