Laverne & Shirley & Kevin & Christopher

Kevin and I got into a humdinger of an argument recently at Stew Club.

It was over the time-setting of Laverne & Shirley. I put forth that even though it was a spin-off of Happy Days, set in the 1950s, it was set in the present day of the late 70s, when the show aired. Kevin insisted it took place in about the same time period as Happy Days.

Our good friend wikipedia settled the tiff.

Laverne & Shirley was an American television situation comedy that ran on ABC from 1976 to 1983 ... Set in roughly the same time period as Happy Days, Laverne & Shirley started in approximately 1959, and when the series ended, it was 1967.

Eh, you can't win them all.

One thing we can all agree on is that there was also, apparently, an animated Saturday morning cartoon, "Laverne & Shirley Join the Army," which none of us remembered. For some reason - according to the opening credits a cross between a handsome recruiting officer, patriotism, and the fact that the army accepts signatures with no last names, the dames enlisted.

I'm still not sure why their commanding officer was a pig, but there's no explaining everything.

Cheers, buddies!
