Tlie series is a spinoff from "Happy Days," and -- get this -- already a spinoff from "Lavernc and Shirley" is in the works. Yes, Paramount Television ami ABC arc planning a new comedy scries called "Lenny and Stuiiggy in the Army." I kid you not. L e n n y and Squigyy, friends of Lavcrne and Shirley, a r c two of the stupidest characters ever seen in a TV series. While I do not consider "Lavcrne and Shirley" one of the belter TV situa- tion comedies, I'll grant that the two stars, Penny Marshall and Cindy W i l - liams, have a certain appeal, and it's not their f a u l t the scripts aren't more sophisticated. I h a v e (ailed to f i n d anything appealing, however, in the characters of Lenny and Squiggy. 1 In (he potential series, the same two actors who h a v e been p o r t r a y i n g L e n n y and Squiggy on "I.avcrnc and Shirley" w i l l h a v e t h e starring roles. They are Michael McKean as L e n n y and David L. Lander as Squig- gy. "Lavcrne and Shirley" a i r s at 8:30 tonight on Channel?. MISS WILLIAMS, who plays Shirley Feeney, has been Wasted by a St. Paul newspaper entertainment columnist, Bill Diehl, for appearing In the current theatrical m o v i e t i t l e d "First Nudie Musical." Wrote Dichl: "What her new-found television fans would do upon hearing her spit out words such as that four-letter expletive for human excrement need not be guessed at. "Millions who tune in at present and judge Cindy so 'cute,' so 'talented,' so 'delightful' surely would drop little Miss Garbage Mouth in a twinkling. "1 cannot, for the life ol me, understand why some of these performers let themselves a p p e a r a n d participate in s u c h tasteless, disgusting, revolting i t e m s as 'First N u d i e Musical.'" The film is rated U, but the St. P a u l columnist terms it "incredible" that it isn't X. Cindy had appeared in s u c h movies as "Ameri- can Graffiti" and "The C o n v e r s a t i o n " b e f o r e becoming a TV star in "Lavcrne and Shirley." And, according to Dave Kaufman in Daily Variety, she reluctantly agreed to do the scries after first turning down the offer. "I DJDN'T WANT to do a series," Kaufman quotes Cindy. "I was frightened at the thought of it. I t h o u g h t a b o u t overexpo- surc, and about losing out on a movie career." After asking the producers for some things she didn't think t h e y would give her, she agreed to do "Lavernc and Shirley." B u t , according to K a u f man, she figured it would have only a short run. To her surprise, it has been one of the most popular shows on TV. And she has been amazed at the impact of a hit series. It makes you wonder a f t e r hearing all those years that recognition is in the movies," she told Kaufman. "You find it in TV."
