When he suddenly gets promoted to Head of Product Improvement one day, his life is turned upside-down.

The series producers initially planned to make Arnie's salary following his promotion (which is mentioned in the pilot) $25,000 a year. They eventually decided that this was too affluent by 1970 standards (when minimum wage was $1.30 an hour), and reduced it to $20,000. Assuming 2,000 working hours a year, Arnie's salary would therefore have been the equivalent of $12.50 per hour under their original plan, and the equivalent of $10.00 an hour after it was changed.

Herschel was Charlie The Tuna! and give us a BOX SET!
I was 10 when this premiered and watched it regularly. The comment here about Arnie being moved or pre-empted because of political coverage jogged my mind a bit. Remember when that political stuff was on all the network channels and there was nothing else to watch? A nightmare for a kid in 1970. I remember Arnie being a good family show and probably had a crush on Sue Ann Langdon and didn't know it. (As I was 10!) But she was a doll. I remember Charles Nelson Reilly, too. I can't recall Arnie *ever* being shown in reruns. Come on SHOUT FACTORY! Give us a box set! The thing I was most enthused about was that my school teacher told us that Herschel Bernardi was the voice of CHARLIE THE TUNA! So we must have discussed it in class for some reason! I always watched Arnie with that in mind.
