TV Show Mash-Up

"Laverne and Shirley"

What OTHER show was a spin-off of "Happy Days"?

George

Well,

"Mork & Mindy's" Mork was INTRODUCED in "Happy Days", and Fonzie appears in the series pilot,

but I don't think of that as a "spin-off."

So, I'd go with "Joanie Loves Chachi."

{Off-topic,

Until the other day,

I confused Van Johnson-the dancer who appeared on "I Love Lucy" for an episode-

with Van Williams- who played Britt Reid/the Green Hornet.)

"Joanie Loves Chachi" was the one I was thinking of.

Van Williams did a crossover episode of "Batman." I think Van Johnson also appeared on "Batman" as The Minstrel.

You're up!

Van Johnson did.

The Green Hornet/Van Williams was in a 2-parter in Batman, and before that, had done a

cameo with Bruce Lee/Kato with one of those windows while Batman and Robin climbed up the wall.

Didn't realize it was my turn.

==========================

Next show:

Amazing how a show can become so well-known and well-watched when there were only 39 episodes.

I should know this. :asdf:

"The Dick van Dyke show"?

My guess would be "The Honeymooners."

Your guess would be correct.

The "lost episodes" were additional material used on "the Jackie Gleason Show"

but the series itself was "the original 39."

The Dick Van Dyke Show had 158 regular episodes (plus 1 reunion.)

Go, bfh!

"No socks" makes me think of "Miami Vice," but I didn't watch the show, so I don't know if pastels and Elvis are relevant.

Good guess - it is Miami Vice.

Sonny Crockett (Don Johnson's character) wore pastel shirts, and, of course, pastels are popular in Miami.

Elvis was the name of Crockett's pet alligator.

You're up.

I know it was one of the "Primetime soaps."

"Dynasty"?

George

Dynasty is correct.

Your turn.

The longest-running scripted show (not news or sports) in TV history.

George

MASH ran for maybe 12 seasons.

"Saturday Night Live" started before it and is still running. Is it that?

"Kojak" Interestingly, his ability always to find a parking space exactly where he needed to be became an idiom: "kojaking" a parking space.

Moishe, Lawrence, Shmuel, and Jerry
