Storyline

Arnie Nuvo has worked on the loading dock at Continental Flange for years, and is quite content in his blue-collar life. When he suddenly gets promoted to Head of Product Improvement one day, his life is turned upside-down. Unsure of how to deal with his new white-collar coworkers and feeling isolated from his old friends, Arnie and his family must make some big adjustments as they struggle to get used to their new surroundings.

Trivia

The series producers initially planned to make Arnie's salary following his promotion (which is mentioned in the pilot) $25,000 a year. They eventually decided that this was too affluent by 1970 standards (when minimum wage was $1.30 an hour), and reduced it to $20,000. Assuming 2,000 working hours a year, Arnie's salary would therefore have been the equivalent of $12.50 per hour under their original plan, and the equivalent of $10.00 an hour after it was changed.

A family favorite
5 March 2006 | by nhoj1962See all my reviews

I've never met a contemporary in the States who even remembers this show. I find that amazing and sad. I lived in Brussels from '67-'72. While we also got a couple BBC shows, my family's options for American TV were limited to 2-3 shows a week.

Over the five years we lived in Brussels, I only recall "Wonderful World of Disney", "Doctari", "I Love Lucy", "Voyage to The Bottom of the Sea" and "Arnie".

Of them all, only "Arnie" became a family viewing event. Of course, due to the dearth of options, we would usually all watch each of the above shows, "Arnie" was the one that the whole family paid attention to, and laughed at together. Mr. Majors stole that show, in our opinion.
