at last!!!!!!!!!!!

I cannot believe it. I thought that I was going crazy. No one that I've spoken to remembers this show. I loved it. My favorite part of this show was the song. I don't remember much about it except that it mentioned Rudolph Valentino, she was struck by a trolly, golly and that now she is an 80's lady. I was beginning to loose hope that i would ever find out about this show. I know it has been many many many years since i last saw it but i know that i would love to see re-runs of this show any time. Seems to me that even as cheesy as it was, it was a real family show. and you know you don't see many of those anymore. Doesn't anyone enjoy wholesome shows anymore??????
