Bob was Bob Newhart's third sitcom (following The Bob Newhart Show and Newhart). Although it only lasted less than two full seasons (and many Bob Newhart fans felt it was a weak series), it was extremely funny. Bob played Bob McKay, who in the first season was a comic-book artist, and in the second season was in charge of a greeting card company.

Here is the complete episode list for Bob. It includes original air dates, episode numbers, episode titles, and brief episode descriptions.

The first column of this table indicates the episodes of Bob we currently have in our archive. (All episodes were recorded in standard play on VHS tapes.) The entries for this column are defined as follows:
