    Because pinball need more fun themes to balance out the death and destruction in vogue of late, why not a classic sitcom-themed pin? I've tried to include ones that might have a shot at getting made. There are more obscure shows that would be awesome but are probably more homebrew territory (Eastbound and Down, Sledge Hammer, Parks and Rec) and others that already have pins (South Park, Family Guy, Gilligan's Island, Simpsons).

    I vote Seinfeld i think it has a lot of good potential for a Pinball.

    If they do Happy Days, does it have to include a Shark Jump toy?

    No love for "My Mother the Car"?

    The correct answer is Get Smart.

    Seinfeld would be fun though.

    Yeah, it will go right next to my Dobie Gillis pinball machine.

    I feel Seinfeld could have a ton of hidden jokes from the show. There are just so many of them!

    Archie Bunker you meatheads. A breaking series that finally allowed you to hear a toilet flush. shocking!

    That 70s show could be cool too.

    Pinball has become too sterile for some of the call outs that would be required to make it any good.

    A Pinball machine about nothing...not that there’s anything wrong with that.

    A sitcom seems like a pretty inert subject for a pinball machine. There's a reason most pins are based on action-oriented properties and activities.

    #27 1 year ago

    One Step Beyond (I think like Twilight Zone) pretty good

    We have the exact same sense of humor. This was my first thought after seeing this topic.

    If Lost was a pin the code would be great at the start and gradually get worse culminating in a convoluted wizard mode bereft of any substance or meaning.

    People love Seinfeld and always will. Maybe the only sitcom that would work and sell.

    I loved Seinfeld when it was on, but am I the only one who thinks it has aged badly?

    #37 1 year ago

    There's a ton of good animated sitcoms that would work well.... Beavis & Buthead, King of the Hill, Bob's Burgers, another South Park, etc.

    How about that Japanese crap. Attack on Titan is huge! Although not a sitcom.

    Yup.

    Besides the lack of cell phones it’s aged great. Almost everything still applies

    Not a sitcom, but is very worthy of a pinball machine.

    Munsters could be fun, lots of toys.
    Happy Days pin, only real problem is that everyone will be hitting it to try to get a free game. AAAAA!

    #45 1 year ago

    Deja vu on this thread, regardless...

    The last season should have.

    With the death of Joanie Cunningham and her drug use, how can it be Happy Days still?

    #48 1 year ago

    Seinfeld is just full of material, pick any episode. I won't go over the most famous ones (Soup Nazi, The Contest, Puffy Shirt, etc.)

    -Turn off the Kenny Rogers Roasters neon sign
    -Keep the Close Talker away
    -Masseuse multiball
    -Return the flagged book to the bookstore
    -Don't insult the doorman timed shot mode

    The music in a Seinfeld pin would be interesting . . .
