Mad About You hit the air in the early ‘90s, when Seinfeld made it trendy to have a sitcom based on the humor that stems from everyday life. It wasn’t quite as successful as the legendary “show about nothing,” but when it was on the air, Mad About You managed to carve out its own niche.
One of the charms of the series was the interplay between Paul Reiser, Helen Hunt, and Murray, the couple’s border collie mix. Though not particularly bright, Murray was always around to provide a laugh when both Hunt and Reiser just weren’t getting the job done. He was a constant in every almost every scene in their apartment, and it would be hard to imagine the dynamic between the two stars without him.
