Laverne and Shirley with The Fonz

1 9 8 2 (USA)
8 x 30 minute episodes

Hanna Barbera produced this bizarre combination of two animated series – Fonz and the Happy Days Gang and Laverne and Shirley in the Army related the misadventures of army recruits Laverne DeFazio and Shirley Feeney and motor pool private Arthur Fonzarelli (aka The Fonz).

They were all supervised by Sergeant Squeely – the US Army’s only talking pig (voiced by Ron Palillo). Sergeant Turnbuckle (Ken Mars) was Squeely’s superior.

Mr Cool (Frank Welker) was Fonzie’s dog.

Cindy Williams and Penny Marshall did not voice their characters this time around, although Henry Winkler provided his own character voice for Fonzie.

The series was also advertised as Laverne & Shirley with Special Guest Star the Fonz.
