This spin-off of the classic sitcom Happy Days focused on Milwaukee's Sweethearts, Laverne De Fazio and Shirley Feeney, two lower class girls who shared an apartment and worked together at Shotz Brewery as bottle-cappers. The two girls were as different as night and day: Laverne was feisty, quick-tempered and man-hungry while Shirley was more naive and trusting and quite inexperienced when it came to romance. The two shared their apartment building with Leonard "Lenny" Kosnowski and Andrew "Squiggy" Squigman, two wannabe greasers who always visited at the most inconvenient times and drove the girls insane. The girls hung out at the Pizza Bowl, a local pizza restaurant/bowling alley owned by Laverne's boisterous father Frank. The characters moved to Burbank, California during the show's sixth season, and Cindy Williams departed the series as Shirley during its eighth. The show remains a popular staple of syndication.
