Summary of Laverne and Shirley The Complete Series DVD
In the first season, the main title shows the first and last names of the characters ("Laverne De Fazio & Shirley Feeney"), but in subsequent seasons it was reduced to just their first names ("Laverne & Shirley"). During its syndicated run, the series was retitled Laverne & Shirley & Company from 1981 to 1983 due to the series still airing on ABC at the time. (At the time, distributors would sometimes change the name of a show for syndication if it was still producing new first-run episodes on a network. Such as was also the case with Happy Days, when it was retitled Happy Days Again in syndication.)For the first five seasons, from 1976 to 1980, the show was set in Milwaukee (executive producer Thomas L. Miller's home town), taking place from roughly 1958–59 (one early episode involves the girls' three-year high school reunion of the Fillmore High Class of 1956) through the early 1960s.
