This Day in Boob Tube History: the debuts of Night Court and Mr. Ed

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 4th 2010 3:10PM
If you didn't hear, Mr. Ed star Connie Hines died recently. As I was looking over her obituary and surfing around to various Mr. Ed sites, I saw that the show premiered on January 4, 1961. I also saw that Night Court also debuted on January 4 (in 1984). To salute both, here are the openings of each show (the Night Court opening is season three, after the death of Selma Diamond and before Marsha Warfield joined).

The early seasons of Night Court are a treasure. The show (like so many others) wasn't as sharp after it's creator (the amazing Reinhold Weege) departed. If I had to take only five tv series with me to a desert island, Night Court would definitely be one of them.

I actually have a 45 record of the "Mr Ed" theme from when I was a kid (also have a "Dino the dino" from the Flintstones!)

Most awesome theme song of any show. Ever. That opening bass line always gets me.
