Laverne and Shirley

Category: TV/Movie

A spinoff of the popular show Happy Days (which was set in the 50s), this show follows the adventures of two single women in Milwaukee. Originally from Brooklyn, Italian-American Laverne De Fazio is athletic and cynical, likes to date “bad” boys and owns an entire wardrobe of sweaters with the letter L embroidered on the chest. Her roommate Shirley Feeney is more optimistic and less outspoken, has an on-and-off boyfriend named Carmine (who’s an aspiring dancer and singer) and is known for love of teen-idol Fabian and a stuffed cat named Boo Boo Kitty. The show ran from 1976-1983, and the theme song was very popular among girls.
