129 x 30 minute episodes

After Louise Lasser left Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman in late 1977 most of the original cast remained and the show was renamed Forever Fernwood.

The focus shifted to Mary’s heart-broken ex-husband Tom (Greg Mullavey) and the rest of the oddball residents of Fernwood, Ohio.

The writing was just as daring and the comic situations were just as campy and absurd.

Tom Hartman began dating Eleanor Major (Shelley Fabares) but in the very last episode of the series, he married Eleanor’s stuttering sister, Penny Major (Judith Kahan).
