Directed by: Michael Zinberg
Synopsis: Bob (Newhart) searches for a lost issue of his original Mad Dog comic book series.
Featured Feline: In this episode Otto the cat is only seen in one scene after Kaye (Carlene Watkins) accidentally destroys the only copy of the Mad Dog issue Bob owns. The scene opens with their daughter Trisha (Cynthia Stevenson) sitting on the kitchen counter petting Otto. “So Mommy won’t be living with us any more,” Trisha tells Otto.
Bob and Kaye discuss the mishap and while Bob is understanding, Kaye worries about their marriage being in trouble. Deep down she suspects Bob is really angry. After the non-argument, both leave the room. “It’s a wonder we’re not more screwed up than we are,” Trisha comments to Otto.
Final Mewsings: Cats stay out of family squabbles.
