Synopsis / Plot
TV Series (1984-1992). 9 Seasons. 193 Episodes. "Night Court" centers around Manhattan Criminal Court Part II, presided over by Judge Harold T. "Harry" Stone (Harry Anderson). Judge Stone is not your typical magistrate. At 33 years old, he was the youngest judge appointed to the court. Unlike other judges, Harry's office is decorated with all sorts of strange artifacts. His shelves are decorated with gag items, a stuffed armadillo, magic props, and photos of his idol, the now-late jazz singer Mel Tormé. Harry has a penchant for magic tricks and bad jokes, and his unorthodox style follows him to the bench. Harry is joined by Dan Fielding (John Larroquette), the prosecuting attorney with an amazing conviction record and a sex life to match; Bull Shannon (Richard Moll), the 6' 8", bald bailiff who isn't the brightest light bulb in the box of candles; Selma Hacker (Selma Diamond), the short, elderly, raspy-voiced bailiff with a dry sense of humor; Lana Wagner (Karen Austin), the court clerk with a secret crush on Harry; and Liz Williams (Paula Kelly), the defense attorney.
