The misadventures of an author turned innkeeper in rural Vermont and his friends.
It was Bob Newhart's idea to begin using film from Season 2 onward in order to give the show a more realistic look.

The interior and exterior of the Stratford Inn are inconsistent with each other. There is a window to the left of the main door that would be obscured by the interior stairway, and the rooms that line the upper hallway would open onto the roof of the front porch. Also, there is a corridor that leads to the left at the top of the stairs that are supposed to give access to further rooms. This corridor would also open on the roof.
The opening credits are expanded slightly on a handful of episodes. After Bob Newhart's credit the picture switches to a boat slowly coming to the shore for about five seconds as the theme adds an extra stanza, afterward the credits return to normal for Mary Frann's credit.
In episode #6, "No Tigers at the Circus," Dick is seen watching a TV show, and only the theme song is heard. In the original run, it was the theme from "Mister Ed" (1961), but in reruns it was changed to the theme from "Bob Newhart Show, The" (1972).
