Hey Landlord!

The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Foundation Presents




Hey, Landlord is an American NBC sitcom created by Garry Marshall and Jerry Belson, which aired during the 1966-1967 season, sponsored by Procter & Gamble in the 8:30-9pm Eastern time period on Sunday nights. This series stars Will Hutchins as Woody Banner, who learns that his uncle has died and that he has inherited from him a New York City brownstone apartment building in Manhattan's East 30s as its landlord. Other tenants in the building are Sandy Baron as comedian Chuck Hookstratten, Jack (Michael Constantine) who was a photographer, glamorous Theresa (Pamela Rodgers) and her roommate and best friend Kyoto (Miko Mayama), who frequently yells, "Hey, Landlord!" thus giving the show its title. Other co-stars are Ann Morgan Guilbert, and Kathryn Minner, who at the time specialized in playing little old ladies. Sally Field later appeared in several episodes as Woody's visiting sister Bonnie.
