Happier Days: Paramount Television's Classic Sitcoms, 1974-1984
by : Marley BrantAh,
the golden age of television sitcoms. Remember the first time we saw Robin Williams...on Mork & Mindy? Remember how funny Laverne & Shirley was? Remember settling down to watch Cheers every Thursday night for years? Here's the inside scoop on all of those shows and more--the behind-the-scenes stories, the intricate interactions between cast and crew, the stories of how these shows were the spring-board for dozens of great careers, for such stars as Tom Hanks (dressed as a woman on Bosom Buddies!), Penny Marshall, Andy Kaufman, Kelsey Grammar, Ted Danson, Henry Winkler, Judd Hirsch, Bebe Neuwirth, and so many more. Each chapter focuses on a specific hit series and is packed with intriguing details and interviews. Anyone who's ever stayed up late to watch reruns of Taxi (or any of the other great Paramount sitcoms) will want a copy of Happier Days to read during the commercials.
