Dr. Katz is a divorced psychologist who lives with his son, Ben. While trying to help his patients (famous and not famous) with their traumas, paranoias, conflicts and problems, Dr. Katz also handles his own problems. His son Ben is all grown up but still don't know what to do with his life. His hobby is to waste Laura's (Dr. Katz's sarcastic receptionist) time with cheesy pick up lines and useless ideas and inventions. Dr. Katz also has a Cheers like bar called Jacky's 33 where he usually hangs out on his spare time, mostly chatting with his friends Julie and Stan. Julie is the bartender, who is studying to become a physical therapist and for whom Dr. Katz has a crush on. Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist was a cartoon based on Jonathan Katz's personal life. Originally running on Comedy Central, the show aired for 5 and a half seasons, and helped put Comedy Central on the map, along with fellow cartoon hit South Park.

Saisons & épisodes Les résumés de tous les épisodes de Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist

S01E01 Pot-Bellied Pigs 00/00/0000 In the premiere episode, Ben sends off quite a lot of money -- $2,999.99 each -- to buy two pot-bellied pigs, theoretically to breed them, although he didn't specify which sexes he wanted. This sudden interest in animal husbandry comes after Katz lectures Ben about finding a job.
S01E02 Pretzelkins 04/06/1995 The first couple episodes had much more random discussion than did the ones that followed. "Pretzelkins" typifies it. The unifying theme is that Katz feels a bit of a malaise in his life. Julie thinks it's because he deals with unhappy people all day long; Stanley thinks he needs a little "you know." Katz asks Ben to drive Grandpa to the urologist, and "remind him to put his pants back on."
S01E03 Bully 11/06/1995 Ben finds that his favorite stuffed animal from his childhood, Bully, has been tossed in the dumpster. Ben immediately blames his father and begins to label all of his possessions; he even labels his labels. Ben starts to fear that his father is going to throw him out of the house like his Bully. Sick of his father playing his folk, blues and "Snoopy Dog Dog" songs, suggests that he should play an open mic night, so that he doesn't play in the house. Ben and Laura go to watch him humiliate himself.
S01E04 Cholesterol 18/06/1995 When Katz becomes concerned about his health after a routine check-up, Julie the bartender agrees to help him get in shape. In exchange, he gives her guitar lessons and sings a songs he wrote about her, with one word: "Julie."
S01E05 Everybody's Got a Tushy 25/06/1995 Katz goes on a couple dates while Ben has no plans other than taking a shower, feeling clean, and then maybe shaving all his body hair. Katz expresses concern to Julie and Stanley about Ben's sex drive and social life. Ben looks up a few old girl friends and winds up with a date with one from fourth grade. He also wants to go into hydroponic farming "because it's fun." We see Grace the cleaning lady briefly as Katz mentions that sometimes Ben rubs up against her. (The only other time we've seen Grace was in #103.) Also, we hear the information operator on the phone; her voice is unaccredited, but it sounds a little like Laura.
S01E06 Family Car 02/07/1995 Ben borrows the car for the day; Katz calls him on the cell phone; Ben parks in front of the building and narrowly avoids getting towed when Laura -- in a surprisingly nice move -- cries to the tow truck driver to get him to stop. The car has to go into the shop because Ben had the emergency brake on the whole time: "Everyone has their own definition of 'emergency,'" he explains.
S02E01 Bystander Ben 15/10/1995 Ben is proud to have been quoted in a newspaper article as a witness to a crime, and he considers himself to be a part of the media now. He considers getting a more exciting first name than Ben, like Zeus; dad suggests Ben "The Over-Reactor" Katz. He finally admits to Katz that he didn't actually see the crime.
S02E02 Real Estate 29/10/1995 Katz's ex-wife announces she's coming for a visit, and Ben tells her she can stay at their place, which Katz does not like the idea of. Ben then brings up the possibility of getting his own apartment, which of course does not happen. ("The sunken living room -- can that be fixed?" he asks one potential landlord.) Stanley, at the bar, tells Katz he's the one who came up with the slogan "Location, location, location"; it used to be "Location, location, location, location," he says. Katz winds up deciding to let his ex-wife stay at the house, even though Ben has now changed his mind on the whole matter, too.
S02E03 Glasses 12/11/1995 Katz gets glasses, although he doesn't think he needs them. He points out the irony in a store whose job it is to sell you glasses telling you after an examination that you need glasses. He makes Laura help him look at an eye chart which he wrote himself. Julie laughs when she sees him in his glasses, and Stanley is no help either.
S02E04 Office Management 17/12/1995 Laura takes the day off for no good reason, and Ben thinks it's because she's not happy there, particularly when Katz asks Ben to fill in and then brusquely changes his mind. Katz frets about whether Laura is happy -- "100 percent of my employees are unhappy," he muses. Stanley suggests "Intra-Office Primal Screaming." In an attempt to make things better, Katz makes Laura an "Administrative Assistant": "I won't be able to pay you as much, but there will be additional responsibilities," he tells her. Katz tries to convince Ben (and himself) that there is no problem with Laura, but then throws an office Christmas party -- even though his office consists only of him and Laura.
S02E05 Bees and SIDS 14/01/1996 Ben gets a sore throat, which then spreads to his legs -- his hypochondria is in full bloom. Katz admonishes him to stay away from the medical books: "Last time it took three doctors and $500 to convince you that you didn't have an ovarian cyst." Ben suspects he may have something genetic, and Katz does some "gene" jokes (gene splicing, the shyness gene). He finally settles on SIDS -- Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. Meanwhile, Katz has a fear of bees, which comes to light when one finds its way into the office.
S02E06 Drinky the Drunk Guy 21/01/1996 Ben thinks Katz is drinking too much ("Take the mask off for one minute"), which of course he is not. As usual, Ben goes way overboard, mentioning a TV program he plans to watch: "The Drinky Guy Who's Drunk All the Time, and His Name is My Dad" ("Drinky the Drunk Guy" is Katz's suggestion for a similar program). Ben calls Laura to check on his dad, and she tells him not to let his own hypochondria extend to his father. He attempts an intervention, guided by a pamphlet called "Why is Daddy Actin'Funny?" but it's a bad time for Katz, who is busy reading "The Foot Bridges of Madison County." So Ben vows to try the intervention at a more convenient time.
S02E07 Sticky Notes 07/04/1996 Katz suspects Laura of stealing office supplies but is too weaselly to confront her on it. Stan, at the bar, says it's not even stealing. Katz points out only he and Laura have keys to the office, along with the cleaning service -- ""Finders Keepers."" Meanwhile, Ben begins pursuing -- some would say stalking -- the new girl in the building.
S02E08 It Takes Some Getting Used To 14/04/1996 Alerted that something is afoot by Katz wearing a bathrobe, Ben learns that he had a woman over the night before. At first he is incredulous, but then believes it and is offended.
S02E09 The Particle Board 21/04/1996 Katz wants to put up shelves and convinces the reluctant Ben to help. Ben goes wild at the hardware store, buying lots of unnecessary stuff, including a nailgun, which he breaks through mis-use and can't return.
S02E10 A Journey for the Betterment of People 28/04/1996 Ben is approached by a "woman plying her trade," and it makes him decide to help people in need. He gets pretty obsessed about the whole thing, brags to Laura, calls Katz a failure, insults a long-time family friend, and finally gives up on the idea of helping people -- all in about three days.
S02E11 Theory of Intelligence 05/05/1996 Katz is asked to speak at an adult education class on his theory on intelligence. His theory is that a person's intelligence increases immediately after an intense emotional experience. Ben tries to prove this by inflicting pain upon himself, among other things.
S02E12 Henna 12/05/1996 Ben and Katz both use "Ultra Henna Bouquet," which makes their hair an odd orange color. Ben just can't bring himself to complain, though, since he got the sample free in the mail and loves getting anything free. They do call the hotline, and Katz tries to complain, only to be stopped by Ben.
S02E13 ESP 26/05/1996 After making a few lucky guesses, Ben thinks he has ESP ("Extra-sentencing something") and goes to extremes in trying to test it. He warns Katz not to go to the bar, or else something bad will happen.
S03E01 Monte Carlo 06/10/1996 Ben decides to go into the celebrity limo business. He moves into Katz's office to do this, which of course annoys Laura.

S03E03 Fructose 20/10/1996 Katz decides to keep a bowl of fruit at the office, but it goes rotten pretty fast. He talks about it at the bar, and Stanley pronounces ""fructose"" as ""fruck-tose."" Meanwhile, Ben considers a variety of career options, after being told by his dad that he's ""pissing his life away"". He tries cake decorating and makes a cake made purely of frosting; takes up roller-skating; considers being a truck driver; and asks if there's a job for what he used to do as a kid: put on a pair of dad's pants, pull them way over his head, and stumble around the house.

Ben wants to know why Katz is doing this, instead of the ""charlatans"" they usually get (""They were busy,"" Katz says), but when he learns that it pays $400 an hour, he encourages this new pursuit of his dad's. Eventually, Katz finds Roger not competent to stand trial.
