Hello, Larry – The Final Papers – 1979

70s Shows - McLean Stevenson - Hello, Larry - 1979

McLean Stevenson - Hello, Larry - 1979

After McLean Stevenson left M*A*S*H he had his own show, which had a nice, but short run. Then he guest starred on several others and had some parts in movies.

In 1979, he got another chance at being the lead in a sitcom. This time it was “Hello, Larry”.

In Hello, Larry, McLean plays the father of two teenage girls and is a talk show host on a Portland, Oregon radio station. This show also had a short run – January 1979 through April 1980.

It wasn’t one of the best 70s shows nor was it one of the funniest. In the clip you are about to see, there are four or five fat jokes in the first couple of minutes, then a fairly long, maudlin stretch where he talks about his divorce with his daughters.

This is just part one (I admit, I watched all three parts!) of the episode, so if you want to watch the entire episode, just wait until this clip’s done and you’ll go to part 2.

Hot L Baltimore – A Norman Lear Production

The Hot l Baltimore - 1970s

The Hot l Baltimore - 1975

Back In 1975, a sitcom called “Hot L Baltimore” hit the airwaves. It was Norman Lear production based on a play by same name by Lanford Wilson.

How could it fail? Lear had already brought us All in the Family, now America’s number one show, after all. But fail it did. I think it was probably a bit, no, a lot too progressive for the time. The setting was an old hotel in Baltimore with an eclectic mix of characters. The ‘e’ in ‘hotel’ on the neon sign keeps flashing out, hence the title.

What you about to see is the trailer. It’s short, but there’s a pretty tense, yet funny moment in it. I hope you enjoy it. If you find any full, or even partial, episodes, please let me know, I’d love to see them.

70s Shows – All in the Family or “Those Were the Days”

70s Shows - All in the Family - Those Were the Days

All in the Family was one of the highest-rated 70s shows for most of the decade. However, there is a lost pilot episode, not unlike many TV shows, especially sitcoms.

This version of the pilot starred different actors as Mike and Gloria. What you are about to see is the lost pilot’s theme song. Same song, but a bit rougher around the edges.

As you will see in the credits is the title of the show – “Those Were the Days” – the same name as the theme song. It took me years to figure out the line, “Gee, our old LaSalle ran great.” Yes, those were the days. Please enjoy responsibly.

The 70s just wouldn’t be the 70s without one of the campiest, cheesiest, most-beloved shows around – The Brady Bunch!

As the 70s were in full swing, the maturing Brady Kids formed a band, or two, or… well, as you’ll soon see in this particular episode, they’re called the Silver Platters. They lied to Alice and told her they were going to a football game, but instead entered a talent contest with a $100 top prize. They wanted the winnings to buy their parents an anniversary gift. However, from the looks of it, the costumes they’re wearing must have cost about three hundred bucks to make! Ah, television. I hope you enjoy this 70s Shows classic moment!

70s Shows – The Paul Lynde Show

70s Shows - The Paul Lynde Show

Most of us remember Paul Lynde from being the center square in Hollywood Squares, but he had an unfortunately brief run as the star of his own show, The Paul Lynde Show. It was an early 70s show, and the clip you are about to watch is from 1972. The video quality is fair, at best, but it’s still one of the funniest 70s shows around!

I think Howie would have been a great character on Big Bang Theory, but he was ahead of his time.

70s Shows – The Odd Couple Theme

70s Shows - The Odd Couple Theme Song

70s Shows - The Odd Couple Theme Song

One of my favorite 70s shows was a little sitcom that came from the Neil Simon play of the same name: The Odd Couple. One of my favorite things about the Odd Couple was their opening theme song, especially in the first couple of seasons when the narrator over the song tells you exactly how Felix Unger and Oscar Madison come to live together. Please enjoy this great 70s shows moment!

70s Shows - What's Happening!

In this episode of one of the most popular 70s shows What’s Happening, Fred “Rerun” Berry busts some mean dance moves!  It seems like he was years ahead of himself, but so were many of the character actors from the 70s shows.  I hope you enjoy this clip and maybe even bust a move yourself!

One of my favorite 70s shows was Welcome Back Kotter, and one of my favorite episodes had young James Woods playing 70s preppy. He does it very well and gets to exit on the line, “In your socks with a pound of lox!”
