Synopsis / Plot
TV Series (1986-1993). Balki (Pinchot) was a young shepherd from the Isle of Mypos in the Mediterranean who moved to a Chicago apartment with his American cousin, Larry (Linn-Baker), who also left his large family. Mugging, sight gags, and fall-down comedy provided the laughs as Balki learned about America and built a career as an illustrator for the Chicago Chronicle. The two cousins could not be more dissimilar! For, while Larry is panicky, hyperventilative, business-like and mercenary, Balki is placid, unharried, sunny-natured and idealistic. Eventually both men were married to long time girl-friends, Jennifer and Mary Anne. In one of the final episodes, both became fathers while promising to stay together as "friends forever".
1992: Emmy: Nominated for Outstanding Individual Achievement in Makeup
