It's the first episode set outside of Mayberry! If you're unfamiliar with the episode, perhaps you are assuming the "Big City" is New York. Nope, it's Raleigh. It's all relative.

Every 1970s superhero had to visit the disco at least once, right? David Banner gets a case of Saturday Night Fever. The episode is notable for featuring a disco version of "The Lonely Man," the closing piano theme from the series.

Taxi "Latke's Revolting"
Sunday at 12:30AM | 11:30C

Andy Kaufman fans, take note. This is one of his spotlight episodes. After Latka's country erupts into a civil war, he feels that he has an obligation to go home and join the revolution, after all he is a general.
