Garry Marshall Week: Blansky's Beauties

Blansky's Beauties was another Garry Marshall production. Spunoff from Happy Days, the show seemed a bit confused. Nancy Walker's character was a cousin of Tom Bosley's character and she appeared on Happy Days to setup her show. Happy Days, of course, was set in the 1950's. Blansky's Beauties, however was set in the 1970's. Amazingly, Nancy Walker's character showed up the week after her Happy Days appearance on Blansky's which was 20 years later, yet she didn't look much older. Other characters went back and forth between the shows, also without looking a day older or younger despite the 20 year time difference. Blansky's Beauties lasted for just one season.
