Trivia

Eddie Mekka - the guy who played "The Big Ragoo" on Laverne and Shirley - was arrested in Las Vegas in March 18, 2017 after he allegedly got into a drunken car crash. See more »

Goofs

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 »

Laverne & Shirley reruns
18 June 2007 | by agowin-1See all my reviews

I wish they would put Laverne & Shirley reruns back on in the evening time- like around 7 or 8 pm-- I need a little Nostalgia in my evening time. Thank you so much-I love Laverne & Shirley.I watched this show with my family all the time - tried to not miss any episodes,it made ya for get the bad day,and let you think back on the good ol' days,the show had style,and respect,honesty, it had a lot of class i always thought anyway.I guess I could go and get the series on DVD but most of the time there isn't much to watch on TV.,but I don't know having it just come on your TV like it used to is a lot better than popping in a DVD.Silly huh---I have some TV programs on DVD set but I never play them -maybe I'm lazy-oh well so please think about putting back on the reruns of Leverne and Shirley--Thank you.
