• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

A short-lived Sitcom starring comedian Jeff Foxworthy. The show started off in the 1995-1996 season on ABC but was promptly canceled. NBC then picked it up in 1996-1997 and slightly Re Tooled it into a second season. It was a basic Dom Com with Jeff as the husband of a typical, Midwestern nuclear family. Yes, you read that right: they cast one of the most prominent Southern comedians in a sitcom, complain that he's too Southern and therefore try to make the show un-Southern to compensate.

In any event, it was one of the lesser-known sitcoms of The Nineties but it hasn't totally escaped the radar; it reran on USA Network for a while and is fully available on DVD.

Tropes present:

  • Dom Com
  • Game Show Appearance: In a sense; one ABC episode involved the Foxworthys appearing on America's Funniest Home Videos.
  • Naked People Trapped Outside: Jeff and his brother, Wayne, make a bet where the loser has to run around the block in only a pair of clown shoes. Jeff's brother loses a bet. Fortunately for Wayne, Jeff lets him run at night after everyone is inside (but not asleep). Unfortunately for Wayne, after Wayne starts his (off screen) run, Jeff puts Wayne's clothes inside and pulls a bullhorn out of the closet and yells into it: "Attention, ladies and gentlemen, there is a naked streaker running around just outside your doors. Yes, he is naked, naked, naked. Good luck finding your clothes, Wayne." Jeff then goes back inside and locks the door.
  • Pro Wrestling Episode: "Wrestling Opera"
  • Retool: The show explored this in a series of commercials between seasons. Jeff and his TV son are discussing where they have been recently and why everything is so strange. Jeff calmly explains that the network is retooling their show so it will be even better and his son shouldn't worry. When the boy asks where his Mom is, Jeff tells him that she is being recast.

  • The Eponymous Show
