Throwback Thursday – Love American Style [VIDEOS]
The show featuring humorous short stories of love and relationships and in between some campy shorts, it ran for 6 seasons followed by years of syndication.
It was the precursor to the Love Boat, without the boat and a regular cast of characters on each segment.
Debuting in1969, it ran one year, and then was renewed from 1971 to 1974. I remember the later versions and syndicated re-runs.
Every week there would be everywhere from 1 to 4 segments each featuring a story of romance, usually with a spin at the end.
The show featured many cameos from the top stars of that era, and had a catch theme song originally sung by the 60's group the Cowsills.
The show also featured a segment called 'Love and the Happy days' which became the pilot for one of the biggest sitcoms of the 1970's 'Happy Days' (check out the pilot on video below)
