Sitcom Advent Calendar Day Four

They did an American remake of On The Buses, don’t you know? It was called Lotsa Luck and starred Dom DeLuise as Stanley Belmont. Believe it or not, it was co-created by Carl Reiner, and ran for a full season on NBC in 1973-74.

Jack Knight starred as Stanley’s best friend Bummy.

Quiet at the back.

Here’s an NBC promo featuring the show and clips from Sanford & Son and The Girl With Something Extra:

I’m no fan of On The Buses, but what do you think? Seen any of this remake? Does it do anything better/worse than the original?
