Robert Urich & Jodie Foster in Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice (1973)

Like the film, Bob (Urich) and Carol (Anne Archer) are a free wheeling, easy going couple, while Ted (David Spielberg) and Alice (Anita Gillette)  are more straight laced and conservative. Still, they're friends and spend a lot of time together. Unlike the film they aren't looking for a four-way. This series is spun off from the Paul Mazursky film of the same name, but bears little resemblance to it, due to the nature of television at the time. The intention is there, with episodes dealing with adult themes, but they seem pretty tame by todays standards, and even the standards of 1973, for that matter. Jodie Foster plays Ted and Alice's daughter Elizabeth, and is as charming as ever.

In the episode above, Ted is worried that his secretary is falling in love with him, and doesn't know what to do about it. It was uploaded to YouTube by wreckage3001.

Obscurity factor: 10 (largely unknown, not on DVD, only on the air for 2 months)


  1. Nice you mention my video. There's another Bob&Carol episode with Jodie Foster on my channel. I try to make all her vintage stuff less obscure. Don't know if that means good or bad news for your site ;)

  2. I'm glad you found the site! You're the first YouTube poster whose video I included who found it here!
