A too good to be true, inexpensive vacation to "Near" Mexico, proves to be just so when the girls get a room with a wall missing. Plus many other deceptive practices foisted on them and other guests ...
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
Penny Marshall has said her favorite episode is "Why Did The Fireman?...", one of the few very serious episodes on the show. The plot has Laverne's boyfriend Randy ( played by Ted Danson) dying while fighting a fire. Laverne becomes depressed and goes into denial, and then her father has to talk her out of it. See more »
Two working women living together for years would be highly unusual in the 1950s/1960s. So unusual that if they were not a couple (as would be suspected) or related, the peer pressure would be enough to force them to end their domestic setting. See more »
When Laverne and Shirley first debuted on Happy Days, little did anyone know that that supposed one off appearance would lead to a classic. Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams were perfect as the wild Laverne and the prissy Shirley. However, the rest of the cast deserves credit for this excellent slice of life comedy, especially Michael McKeon and David Lander as everyone's favorite losers Lenny and Squiggy. But the thing that made this show great was the fact that it was one of the all-time great slapsctick comedies.
