Mad About You Cast


Series Description
    


The Mad About You TV show was a 30 minute romantic comedy series on NBC about a rare subject for the 1990s! Two young newlyweds in love and happily married! That's not to say that their lives together were perfect. They had their share of disagreements like all couples do and even considered a split in 1996, but there was never any doubt that they cared deeply for each other. In May of 1997, they were blessed by the birth of their daughter Mabel.

Mad About You Trivia

Paul Buchman worked as a documentary filmaker and his wife Jamie worked as a public-relations executive.

Lisa Kudrow played the twin sister, "Ursula Buffay" of her "Friends" character, "Phoebe Buffay" on close to two dozen episodes of Mad About You. Then, on episode #16 of Friends titled, "The One With Two Parts - Part 1", Jamie saw Phoebe at the gang's coffee house and mistook her for Ursula.

That wasn't the only crossover episode involving Mad About You characters. In episode #8 of Mad About You titled, "The Apartment", Cosmo Kramer (Michael Richards' character on "Seinfeld") was subletting his apartment from Paul Buchman. When Jamie found out that Paul hadn't given up the apartment, she told him to get over there and get Kramer to take over the lease.

Episode #7 of Mad About You titled, "Token Friend" was inspired by a real-life experience. Actor Steve Buscemi guest stars on that episode. In real-life, he tried out being a stand up comedian, before becoming an actor. He was doing so badly one time that they took him off stage before his gig was done and replaced him with another comic. That comic was Paul Reiser. Steve Buscemi is doing fine, however, as a very, very busy actor. You might know him best as the recurring character, "Tony Blundetto" on the TV series, "The Sopranos".

A character in one of the episodes asked Paul and Jamie if they had seen that movie where aliens burst out of people's chests (referring to the Alien movies). Paul responds by saying that he only saw the first one. This was an inside joke referring to the fact that Paul Reiser had starred in the second Alien movie.

The piano player for the theme song was none other than Paul Reiser himself!

Paul Buchman and Jamie Stemple (later Buchman) met while trying to buy a copy of the New York Times Sunday paper at a newsstand.

Mabel Buchman, Paul and Jamie's daughter, got her name in a pretty cool way! Mabel's grandmother (played by Carol Burnett of the "Carol Burnett Show") said that "Mothers always bring extra love". If you make an acronym out of that sentence, it spells, "M.A.B.E.L."!

Actress Teri Hatcher lost the role of Jamie Buchman to Helen Hunt at the final Mad About You auditions. If she'd have gotten that role, who might have played "Lois Lane" on the series, "Lois and Clark"?

As a wonderful surprise for the viewers who hated to see the series end, the final episode's story line in May of 1999 was told from the viewpoint of a "grown-up" Mabel, Paul and Jamie's daughter! We learned that in the future: 1999 - Paul and Jamie will discover that they are not legally married! 2005 - Jamie becomes pregnant again but loses the baby. 2021 - Paul and Jamie break up (but they eventually reunite and live happily ever after). Undisclosed Years: Fran and Mark re-marry, Ira marrys and has eight children, It is discovered that Maggie and Hal were British spys, Marvin becomes an international wrestling champion called "Angry Tina" and Debbie and Joan get married in Hawaii!


Mad About You Theme Song

Title: The Final Frontier

By: Don Was and Paul Reiser

Tell me why, I love you like I do.
Tell me who, could stop my heart as much as you.
Let's take each other's hand,
As we jump into the Final Frontier.

Mad about you baby. (Whoo hoo hoo)
Yeah.
I'm mad about you. (Whoo hoo hoo)

Whoo hoo hoo.
