Children of the 80s, how many of you remember "Night Court"? The show, which was on NBC from January 4, 1984 to May 31, 1992, took place in a Manhattan court room and chronicled the lives of the people who worked therein.

But all might not have been as peachy keen on the set as it seemed -- TMZ caught up with Richard Moll, who played Bailiff Bull Shannon on the show, and he shot down the idea of a reunion as fast as the reporter could ask about it.

Moll said that he would "run in the other direction" if anyone approached him to get the cast back together. He went on to say, "I love show business...it's the people that I can't stand."

Moll, however, is a show biz person himself. He's continued to appear in TV shows and movies since "Night Court" ended, including "Scary Movie 2" and "Smallville." He's also done voiceover for video games and TV series.
