TOO CLOSE FOR COMFORT TED KNIGHT

and NANCY DUSSAULT star as Henry and Muriel Rush, owners of a two-family house in San Francisco. Henry is a conservative cartoonist who authors a comic book called COSMIC COW. During scenes in which Henry draws in his bedroom, Knight used his earlier acquired ventriloquism talents for comical conversations with a hand-puppet version of "Cosmic Cow." Muriel is a laid back freelance photographer, having been a band singer in her earlier days. They have two grown children, older daughter, brunette Jackie (DEBORAH VAN VALKENBURGH) who works for a bank and younger daughter Sara (LYDIA CORNELL), a blonde bombshell and a college student at San Francisco State University. At the start of the premiere episode, Jackie and Sara are living with their parents in a cramped, awkward arrangement. Their longtime downstairs tenant, Neville Rafkin, recently died. The family discovers Rafkin was a transvestite and the many strange women Henry had been opening the door for all those years were actually Rafkin himself. Jackie and Sara convince their parents to allow them to move into the now-vacant downstairs apartment. In a running gag, Henry falls off the girls ultra-modern chairs or couch every time he attempts to sit down. Despite the daughters push for independence and moving into the downstairs apartment, Henry proves to be a very protective father and constantly meddles in their affairs. A few episodes into the series, Sara s addle-headed friend Monroe Ficus, played by actor JM J. BULLOCK, made an appearance. Although Monroe was originally intended to be used for only a single episode, producers added the character to the series and he became just a "friend" of Sara s and Henry s principal (if unintended) foil. During its second season, the series principal stories are focused around Muriel s pregnancy. Additionally, Henry s niece April (DEENA FREEMAN) comes from Delaware to live with the Rush family. The season concludes with Muriel giving birth to a son, Andrew (later played regularly by twins WILLIAM and MICHAEL CANNON from 1983-1984). For the third season, April departs and the character of Muriel s mother, Iris Martin (AUDREY MEADOWS) is added in order to help take care of Andrew. In its final season, the show was re-titled THE TED KNIGHT SHOW. Neither Jackie nor Sara appeared in this season. Henry, Muriel and Andrew move to a house in Marin County, north of San Francisco. Henry leaves the cartoonist profession and becomes editor and 49% owner of a newspaper, The Marin Bugler, while Muriel takes a job with the paper as a photographer. Monroe becomes a reporter-in-training at the paper. Hope Stinson (PAT CARROLL) owns the other 51% of the Bugler, creating friction with Henry. Lisa Flores (LISA ANTILLE) was also added to the cast as the Rushes maid and romantic interest for Monroe. THE TED KNIGHT SHOW was added to the TOO CLOSE FOR COMFORT package in syndication and was re-titled as part of that series.
