It’s way past time for another look at Obituary Bob, Timothy’s looney tunes axe murderer from “The Treasure of Sierra Madre Street,” the Tenspeed and Brown Shoe episode that first aired on June 20, 1980. OB is about to stage a diversion that involves the teddy bear.
Tenspeed and Brown Shoe was one of about eight million television projects that the legendary Stephen J. Cannell had a hand in. Creating, writing, producing, directing, even acting – you name it, he did it. There aren’t too many go-getters like him left.
