That last one kinda looks like the dad from Diffrent Strokes (the white guy, not Meadowlark Lemon). Or ... well, some other balding middle-aged white guy who wouldn't be allowed on TV today.

No, not him. But he do sorta resemble him...

And ACTUALLY, this show is sorta kinda a spin off of DS. The main character of this show was old friends with Philip Drummond.

The only spin-off I can think of is Facts of Life. Is that it?

That house in the other one (not the one w/ the two people, the house by itself) looks really familiar. I'm gonna say ... Alf? I'm sure that's wrong, but I'm pretty sure it was a show I watched regularly.

No, not FoL. It was a very short-lived sitcom. And the connection between the two is very slim. Mostly I really wanted to post a picture of Meadowlark Lemon.

Not Alf. But if you watched the show that it comes from regularly, then you and I have a lot in common. Which is oh, so sad, knowing the program.

#1) "Bosom Buddies"
#3) "Mama's Family"
#5) "Hello Larry"?

Yup, those is right!

In Mike's defense for not getting Hello, Larry-- it was a terrible show and this was taken from the even-weaker-than-the-first 2nd season intro.

As far as Mama's Family-- it surprises no one that I know when I tell them I'm 3rd cousins to the guy who played Vinton on the show, that renegade of the 'rural purge' era, Ken Berry.

is #4 Barnaby Jones? That puzzle piece intro looks familiar . . . some quinn martin production . . . ?

Good ole Barnaby!

(Who names their kid 'Barnaby'?)
