Premise

Long-running slapstick sitcom (with a great theme song) about two single Milwaukee women sharing an apartment and working at a brewery in the 1950s. Their circle of friends included oddballs Lenny and Squiggy, and Shirley's sweet boyfriend Carmine. A spin-off from `Happy Days,' it relied more on physical comedy than its parent show and was actually more successful, becoming the No. 1 show in its second year. Before the end of its run, the girls moved to L.A. A cartoon version aired in 1981.
