This video is part of an ongoing project to build a retrospective TV archive made for the LL community on my Retro TV channel at
Laverne & Shirley ran for 8 seasons with 178 episodes from 1976 to 1983. A successful spinoff from Happy Days. There was also an animated spinoff called Laverne & Shirley in the Army. The theme song sung by Cyndi Grecco actually made the top 30 on the charts and the show surpassed Happy Days in ratings for a bit too.
To me anyway this was The Odd Couple with a female cast. Ironically the set of Laverne & Shirley IS the set from The Odd Couple that was modified when The Odd Couple ended it's run.
There was a lot of crossover with Happy Days, which I think shows today could do with more of.
My favorite characters on this show were Lenny and Squiggy, played by David Lander and Michael McKean. They were originally hired as writers and they wrote their characters, which they had created in college, into the show. So I guess that's all I have to say on this show. Enjoy!
