| Wes-leeeeey!
This was a really fun show that is a good example of the old school, very family friendly, situational comedies that ate up most of my family's TV watching time throughout the wonderful decade of the nineteen-eighties.

The lead character (the title-named Mr. Belvedere) is a stuffy but very wise and very professional, stuck-in-his-ways butler who actually was the butler for the royal family. I forget why he leaves them and moves to the U.s.

Anyway he settles in with this American family of blue collar people in Pittsburgh, PA, where the father is a gruff former baseball player (played by Bob Uecker) and the youngest son Wesley is a trouble maker and a constant thorn in Mr. Belvedere's side but also becomes his best friend.

There are three clocks on the same wall in the living room, but none of them show the same time.


Alternate Versions

Originally, the show had 5 different opening sequences: The version seen on the pilot episode, the version from seasons 1 & 2 (1985-1986), the version from season 3 (1986-1987), the version from seasons 4 & 5 (1987-1989), and the version from season 6 (1989-1990). In syndication, a truncated version of the season 4 & 5 opening was used on every season, except for season 6. However, Shout! Factory's DVD releases, have the proper openings reinstated depending on the episodes/seasons.
