Szysznyk (Pronounced SIZ-nik) was an short-lived American television series produced by Paramount Network Television, originally broadcast on CBS during the 1977-78 television season, and starring Ned Beatty as Nick Szysznyk. Only ten episodes were aired.[1]


Retired Marine Nick Szysznyk is a playground supervisor at a Washington DC community center.[2]

The ongoing punchline of the show was that other people, particularly those meeting Szysznyk for the first time, almost invariably mispronounced his surname. (In one episode, a detective called him "Sneeze-wick".)
