Scriptwriter Robert “Bob” Colleary, who spent two decades writing for Captain Kangaroo before transitioning to sitcom writing in the late 1970s, passed away on January 8th at the age of 82. Colleary wrote “Guerilla My Dreams” for the eighth season of M*A*S*H. It was one of his earliest sitcom credits. According to his obituary at Legacy.com, Colleary won an Emmy Award in 1980 for his work on Barney Miller and later served as an executive producer on Benson and It’s a Living. His Internet Movie Database entry has a number of credit under the name R.J. Colleary, including a 2011 episode of Life with Boys, a Canadian sitcom. Given that his obituary states he retired in 1989, it seems unlikely that most recent credit is accurate. Based on a quick Internet search, which led me to this interview with R.J. (Bob) Colleary — the son of the Robert “Bob” Colleary who wrote “Guerilla My Dreams” — I believe IMDb has mixed writing credits for father and son into one entry.
