1978–1982 A very young Robin Williams. I was going to say bizarre, but he is already that. The Mork & Mindy theme tune was composed by Perry Botkin, Jr., who also did work (scoring) for Happy Days and Laverne & Shirley. In the second season, the theme was modified toContinue Reading

1980-1982 Wow, imagine Tom Hanks in a 1980s television series. Bosom Buddies might well have been Tom Hanks’ big break; the show is about two men (the other being Peter Scolari) who disguise themselves as women in order to live in a women-only apartment because of the dirt-cheap rent. TheContinue Reading

Let’s just complete all Jesse Frederick theme songs, shall we? This is the last. By the way, I just found out that these shows associated with Jesse Frederick are known as “Miller-Boyett sitcoms.” Shows developed and produced by Thomas L. Miller and Robert L. Boyett.

The memorable theme song for Perfect StrangersContinue Reading

So, we’re still in the Happy Days era, and this next show, apparently, is a spin-off of Happy Days. Surprisingly enough, composers Charles Fox and Norman Gimbel are once again associated with this show’s theme song. The theme song for Laverne & Shirley is entitled “Making Our Dreams Come True,”Continue Reading

You’d probably be surprised to know that “Happy Days,” the song, was not always used for Happy Days, the show. In its first season, “Rock Around the Clock by Bill Haley & His Comets was used for the opening credits. However, also in season one, “Happy Days” was used asContinue Reading
