Hello. My father and I ...

We are Family: Kristy McNichol and castmates

Question: Hello. My father and I disagree: I thought Kristy McNichol was just in movies until Empty Nest, but he seems to think she was in a television series prior to that. Is that true? If so, what was the name? Thank you for your help.

Premise: A mod anthology about dating and mating in the swinging '70s, this collection of romantic vignettes drew an impressive guest roster, including Milton Berle, Sid Caesar, Sonny and Cher, Ozzie and Harriet, and, an icon of the era, Tiny Tim. In 1972, Ron Howard, Anson Williams and Marion Ross starred in a skit that resulted in a spin-off show, `Happy Days.' Popular, playful and never taken even remotely seriously, `Love' ran from 1969 to '74, and inspired a 1985 remake, `New Love, American Style.'
