Default Anyone ever seen the Controversial TV Show "Hot L Baltimore"?

This was another sitcom produced by Norman Lear. It started in January of 1975 and lasted to June of 1975. It was said this show brought sexual innuendo to the home screen.

I haven't seen it personally, but my mom has. She told me that it was a pretty funny show.

I vaguely remember that show. I do recall Charlotte Rae was wonderful as Mrs. Bellotti whose crazy son Moose was always causing trouble. I don't think Moose was ever actually seen, but there was a lot of talk about his many wild antics, including gluing himself to the ceiling and running around naked with a Hershey's Kiss in his navel. (He claimed that he was a chocolate chip cookie.)

There were some other fine cast members, including James Cromwell, Conchata Ferrell, and Richard Masur. I think it was just a little ahead of its time, though, so it didn't have much of a chance to stay on the air for very long.

Norman Lear was known for putting the C in Controversy

Charlotte Rae was in the show? Gee doesn't sound like she would be in a show that has a nutty son. Choris Leachman yes charlotte no. I thought I read that Linda Gray has a part in the show.

You might be thinking of another short-lived Norman Lear comedy called All That Glitters which aired in April-July of 1977, the year before the premier of Dallas.

LOVED Hot L Baltimore!

Charlotte Rae and her son Moose. (played by Richard Masur if I remember correctly.)

By the way, check out the great Odd Couple shirts and stuff I found:

No, Moose was not played by anyone. That's what made him such a great character -- he was left entirely to the viewers' imaginations.

Just a friendly suggestion: Since it appears as though you signed up for the main purpose of promoting an online gift shop, you might want to reconsider doing that. I understand it's frowned upon here.

I think Hot L Baltimore is one of the lost TV shows of the 70's.

That act alone was very sickening and nasty that the FCC could have quickly canceled Hot_l Baltimore if it was aired right now.
