Cosmic Cow - Bovine comic
strip character on the sitcom TOO CLOSE FOR COMFORT/ABC/SYN/1980-86.
Cosmic Cow was a space age hero righting the wrongs of the universe. He
sported a silver space suit and bright orange-colored horns.
The Cosmic Cow
character sprang from the creative mind of Henry Rush (Ted Knight), a
talented, grey-haired San Francisco artist/illustrator reduced to drawing a
weekly children's comic strip for Random Comics, a division of
Wainwright Publications owned by Arthur Wainwright (Hamilton Camp).
Working at home, Henry found he could be more creative if
he wore a hand puppet of Cosmic Cow while he drew. So, putting a pen in the
cow's mouth Henry cranked out the weekly strip, occasionally asking his puppet
advice on whether the plot line was proceeding properly.
