The continuing misadventures of neurotic New York City stand-up comedian Jerry Seinfeld and his equally neurotic New York City friends.
The character of Cosmo Kramer was based on Kenny Kramer, a man who worked across the hall from co-Creator Larry David. In a self-confessed move to cash-in on the sitcom's popularity, Kenny Kramer formed the "Kramer Reality Tour", an officially-recognized New York City tour which visits the real-life locations often featured in the sitcom. In the 1997 season of this show, Cosmo Kramer's memoirs are published by J. Peterman as his own. Wanting to make the most of the situation, Cosmo Kramer starts a "Peterman Reality Tour", offering a tour of the real-life locations featured in the memoirs.
Jerry, it's B.O.
Jerry: But the whole car smells.
Jerry: So when somebody has B.O., the "O" usually stays with the "B". Once the "B" leaves, the "O" goes with it.
Jerry's apartment building looks to have earthquake retrofitting on the exterior (several square steel plates which are anchors for cables) Actually, that is what it is. When I first saw it, our company was bidding in earnest around the time after the Whittier quake and that is what the finished product looked like. Native to Los Angeles and California only.
The series does not have an opening credits sequence. Instead, the lead actor credits play out over a scene. Now commonplace in sitcoms and drama series, this was considered a novelty in 1990 and sparked a debate over the future of opening credits in TV series.
'Larry David' was the original voice of Newman in "The Revenge", but 'Wayne Knight' overdubbed the voice for syndication. Both versions are available in the Season 2 DVD set.
