Laverne & Shirley reuniting on kids show
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.
