Strange Titles

It is hard to translate comedy into another language or culture, which is why drama and action tend to do better in international markets. That doesn't typically stop Hollywood from trying, however. Here are some unusual foreign titles for famous American sitcoms.

Perfect Strangers was known as A Greek Conquers Chicago in Greece.

The Facts of Life was known as The Apple Tree in Italy.

Golden Girls was known as Super Cats in Brazil

Growing Pains was known as Our Noisy Home in Germany.
