Trivia

Newhart insisted that there be no children for his character to be the father of in each of his television series. "I told the creators I didn't want any children, because I didn't want it to be a show about 'how stupid Daddy is, but we love him so much, let's get him out of the trouble he's gotten himself into.'" In the sixth year of Newhart's successful 1972 CBS series, the writers wrote a script in which Emily Hartley was pregnant. When Newhart was asked his opinion of the script, he said, "It's very funny. Who are you going to get to play 'Bob'?"

Prior to hitting his success on the comedy circuits in the 1960s, Bob worked as a bookkeeper for a Chicago firm and hated every minute of it.

His 1960 comedy album "The Button Down Mind of Bob Newhart" went to number 1 on the charts, beating out Elvis and "The Sound of Music" cast album.

Father of Robert William Newhart.

He has a sister (Sister M. Joan Newhart) who is a nun.

His wife came up with the idea for "The Last Newhart" in which the series Newhart was all a dream of Dr. Bob Hartley of The Bob Newhart Show.
