Laverne DeFazio and Shirley Feeney were best friends and roommates coping with dates, neighbors, and each other During the late '50s and early '60s they worked as bottlecappers for Shotz Brewery in Milwaukee. They moved to Burbank, California in 1965 to start a new life when they got replaced at the brewery by an automated bottlecapper.Written by
While the parent show "Happy Days" had many science fiction or magic themed episodes, "Laverne and Shirley" had none. Actually, there was one episode called "Upstairs Downstairs" which had Laverne and Shirley battling the forces of both Heaven and Hell; although that turned out to be a dream sequence. Also, in the pilot episode of Mork and Mindy; which is a Sci-fi spinoff of happy days centering around the alien Mork; Mork dates both Laverne and Shirley. See more »
In the opening credits for the show, I spotted an Interstate Highway sign. The Interstate began construction in the mid-1950's, and Milwaukee wasn't added to the system until quite a bit later. See more »
Laverne, I'm telling you, flying is safer than driving! Nobody has ever crashed into a cloud!
Laverne De Fazio:
Yeah well nobody ever fell 40,000 feet from a DeSoto either.

Here is an example of an excellent television program. This show is a show that can be enjoyed by all without nonsense about sex, drugs, and violence. It's also way funnier than the some of the shows we have on television today. It's a shame that this wonderful program cannot be found in syndication these days. This show also had some great characters even beyond the title characters such as Lenny, Squiggy, Big Rosie Greenbaum, and more. In my eyes, Laverne & Shirley is a classic that will never die and that will be cherished for years to come. If the opportunity ever comes along for you to see this great television show, don't let it pass you by. See Laverne & Shirley if you haven't, you'll be glad you did.
