Celebrity Rock: Starcrossed (1976)

From season 1 of Laverne & Shirley:

In "From Suds to Stardom", Lenny & Squiggy (Michael McKean & David L. Lander) stole the show with their debut single, "Starcrossed".

Now you know why Squiggy never had the clarinet again after this one. Benny Goodman, he ain't.

I rather liked their follow up, "Night After Night" better, but still a fun showing!

I don't know why Laverne didn't beat up Gloria! She was a bee-yotch extraordinaire!!!

I always liked episodes in which talent shows were involved. You could see the principals get to show what they could do - Eddie Mekka and Betty Garrett singing and dancing, Lenny & Squiggy doing their thing, Laverne and Shirley getting crazy trying to hold auditions with people with less desirable talents....

"Night After Night" is the one most people remember, and the guys came to Albany to perform it at a Cerebral Palsy telethon around the time it was released. I remember seeing it on TV.
