Lav­erne & Shirley re­unit­ing on kids show

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - ENTERTAINMENT -

IF you’re a Lav­erne & Shirley fan, they’re go­ing to make your dreams come true. Penny Mar­shall and Cindy Wil­liams, the stars of the 1970s odd-cou­ple sit­com, will re­unite on kids show Sam & Cat next month.

It will mark the first time the duo will ap­pear in a scripted TV se­ries in 30 years.

The episode ti­tled #Sal­monCat will air Nov. 18 on YTV.

Sam & Cat stars Jen­nette McCurdy and Ariana Grande as po­lar op­po­site room­mates who start a babysit­ting busi­ness to make ex­tra cash. In the spe­cial episode, they must re­name the com­pany be­cause it’s too sim­i­lar to Salmon Cat, the name of a fic­tional ’70s show. Mar­shall and Wil­liams play the creators of Salmon Cat who are em­broiled in a 30-year feud.

Lav­erne & Shirley, a spinoff of Happy Days, aired from 1976 to 1983 on ABC and starred Mar­shall and Wil­liams as room­mates Lav­erne De Fazio and Shirley Feeney.
