Steen & Thompson were also story editors on Police Squad (another ABC show).

You should see the episode with all those major leaguers. It was in season 6's "The Field". George's reaction, when he sees them, is priceless:

George: "Hey wait a second. You're Reggie Jackson!" [Points to Wesley] You know who this is? It's Reggie Jackson! This is Reggie Jackson!"

Henry Arron: "Hi, George. I'm Henry Arron."

George [To Wesley]: "Henry Arron! You know who this is? It's Henry Arron! He's the all time home run champ! If I had a dollar for every home run this guy hit, you'd know what I'd have?"

Mr. B: "My back salary?"

Willie Mays: "Hi George!"

George: "Willie Mays! Say Hey! [Sees Ernie Banks] Ernie Banks! Mr. Cub!

Ernie Banks: "Welcome to the friendly contfire, or wherever we are."

George: "This is incredible! Some of the greatest hitters in baseball! [Sees Harmon Killebrew] Harmon Killebrew! [Sees Johnny Bench] Hey, Johnny Bench! [Sees Robert Goulet] And Robert Goulet!"

Robert Goulet: "Hey George."

George: "What are you doing here?"

Robert Goulet: "I own the field."

More names I recognize are:

Brian Robbins - who would go on to star on another hit ABC sitcom in "Head of the Class" later on in the Fall of 1986 and one of the EP's of Nickelodeon's "All That," "Keenan and Kel" and "The Amanda Show."

Jason Bateman - of "Silver Spoons," "It's Your Move," and "Valerie/Valerie's Family/The Hogan Family," the lattermost of which was supposed to initially start in the Fall of 1985, but due to illness of one of the stars and script reworks, was pushed back to March 1986.

I also recognize writers Nancy Steen and Neil Thompson who also wrote a handful for Night Court episodes as well as a few Webster episodes.

Similarly, in that episode, I noticed that one of the production assistants was named John Gray. I wonder if it's the same John Gray who created the CBS supernatural drama Ghost Whisperer in 2005.

As a kid I was too young to know what Robert Goulet was famous for, even know I ask myself what was connection with the Owen's did he know George back in the day?

I remember the Punky Brewster joke, but I thought of a different connection between the shows at the time: Judy Hart-Angelo & Gary Portnoy wrote the themes for both shows & Cheers. Portnoy sang the theme songs for both Cheers & Punky Brewster in the opening credits, while Leon Redbone sang the Mr. Belvedere theme.

It's been awhile but wasn't there an episode in which Tony Danza guest starred? Only he wasn't in character as Tony Micelli and it wasn't a crossover with Who's The Boss?

But I remember an episode where George is having a poker party at his house and the doorbell rings with Robert Goulet, Bubba Smith, Dick Butkus?, ...and then Tony Danza?

I can't remember if he's in his "WTB?" character or not, but yes, he's in that episode.

Just saw today's episodes with Brian Robbins (Head Of The Class) and Jason Bateman both as Heather's boyfriends (in separate episodes).

Now Jason Bateman has a successful movie career but I wonder how many remember his childhood acting gigs.

I was out and missed the first ep, but I just watched the Jason Bateman ep! OMG he sure had nerve huh? He was BOLD!! Esp. after getting caught by Belvedere and coming back again! Plus George is a tough guy, I'd think a young guy would think twice before trying to fool around with his wife!

Good ep! Kept me laughing and entertained! I liked the side story of George trying to quit smoking and Mr. Belvedere giving up snacks!

I remember Jason Bateman as far back as his regular appearances as yet another adopted child of The Ingalls on the last season of Little House on the Prairie (not including the sequel series Little House: A New Beginning). He showed up on Silver Spoons the next season and has pretty much been acting steadily since then.

In the 90's I think Bateman was laying low for awhile he did have a forgotten sitcom with comedian Harland Williams on the up and coming WB network.

I can't blame him I mean Ilene Graff was really attractive, my last two girlfriends were older than me too, but yeah Jason was really pushing it I would have slapped him a bit.

Yes she is ! She's really cute! I could see where a young guy would crush on her, but Sean was a sleaze bag! She was a nice, decent married lady and the mother of a girl he was seeing! And after getting caught the first time and coming back in the house again like he did all smug, only to try it again! He really had a lot of nerve! but things like that really happen, and it was a good ep! I really like this show, it touches on some deep topics, but the humor stays in the show too! IMO one of the best comedy shows that centered around a family! Great cast, and the three kids really do seem/look like they could be siblings!

I also recognize writers Nancy Steen and Neil Thompson who also wrote a handful for Night Court episodes as well as a few Webster episodes.
I also recognized a few PBS veterans who worked behind the scenes as well. For instance, David F. Chen, who worked on the show as technical manager, was previously the first director of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood during the show's first two seasons on NET, credited under his full name of David Fu-Ying Chen. Also, Shelley Herman, who also worked on the show as script supervisor, and Robert Braithwaite, who was the show's production executive, both worked on Sesame Street at various times, the former as assistant to the producer, the latter as production supervisor. Braithwaite was also an associate producer on fellow CTW production 3-2-1 Contact. Stage manager Melinda Casey also worked on 3-2-1 Contact as associate director of the show's celebrity segments during the first season. Finally, editor Ed Brennan also worked on fellow CTW production Square One TV as editor of the program's Mathnet segments.

There were also a few PBS personalities who appeared on-camera instead. For instance, Luisa Leschin, whom guest starred in the season 4 episode "Kevin Nightingale", in which Kevin decides to choose nursing as a college major, playing a pregnant woman who needed her baby delivered fast, was an ensemble regular on Square One TV. Also, Sharon Howard, whom guest starred in the season 5 episode "The Dinner", in which Mr. Belvedere tries to help Marsha improve her cooking skills, playing the wife of a councilman Marsha is trying to impress, was previously married to Joe Howard, whom also co-starred on Square One TV in the show's Mathnet segments as George Frankly, one of the detectives for the titular organization.

Of course, the biggest connection to CTW came from Ilene Graff, whose younger brother, Todd Graff, previously sang the theme song to Sesame Street when it first premiered in 1969, as well as playing Short Circus member Jesse during the final two seasons of fellow CTW production The Electric Company.
