For several years there was a certain amount of interplay between the characters of this show and Happy Days (1974), especially when both shows were set in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. See more »
In the final three seasons, when Laverne and Shirley move to California, the exterior apartment house shots do not match the set's floor plan- specifically the bedroom and kitchen. The outside shows the bedroom is above the living room, but inside it is in the direction of stage right. The kitchen extends beyond the living room, stage left, and from the outside it just shows that the building ends at the living room. See more »
When Laverne and Shirley first debuted on Happy Days, little did anyone know that that supposed one off appearance would lead to a classic. Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams were perfect as the wild Laverne and the prissy Shirley. However, the rest of the cast deserves credit for this excellent slice of life comedy, especially Michael McKeon and David Lander as everyone's favorite losers Lenny and Squiggy. But the thing that made this show great was the fact that it was one of the all-time great slapsctick comedies.
