    Oh man…I even owned (still at my parents house) the record album by Mary Kay Place!! LOL…I wonder if it’s worth something now!

    why would you need a laugh track.you must be as dizzy as mary to think that.

    Like many others, this show was ahead of its time. Its a spoof of soap operas and their outlandish plots. Problem was, in the ’70s, people were still addicted to soaps and weren’t ready to spoof them. If there was a laugh track to this show, people would have understood its purpose.

    Oh Lord–Mary Hartman sure was nutty (that Louise Lasser was a nutbag both on and off her show), but Twin Peaks was on a whole other level.

  14. floydrharper says:

    God, I miss the old days!! TV isn’t worth plugging in these days.

  15. BestManMe09 says:

    Martin Mull (Garth Gimble on Mary Hartman) admitted in a 1978 interview with Newsweek that he never yelled in reallife. He is naturally lobotomized and weird for it. Count yourself as normal if you get angry and yell on slim occasion.

  16. pdonster2 says:

    This and Twin Peaks had to be the two weirdest shows on TV.

    As I review some of these old shows I watched as a kid, it’s becoming very clear why I’m so maladjusted.

  18. andrewdcarter says:

    Wow this show brings back so many memories…from childhood…especially the opener…and Dody died today…seems almost like simpler time.

  19. oliveol99 says:

    amen, to that!!! :)

  20. Msbookie says:

    Rest in Peace Dody; the lord allowed you to reach maturity on this earth. God Bless, right after George Carlin….who’s next? 6-23-08

  21. Sonnie55 says:

    Ha, yep. I used to watch this when I was a teenager. Weird but funny.

  22. luvlife347 says:

    OMG! My family actually used to watch this. Crazy then and crazy now. LOL
