Who could forget the zany adventures of Balki Bartokomous and cousin Larry Appleton!
This sitcom airing 8 seasons was 80′s TV comedy at it’s finest. And I always thought that the theme song was one of the best one’s out there. Well constructed, catchy as all hell and I can clearly remember that if I turned the show on too late and missed the theme song, I’d get pissed off.
Oddly enough though, my memory of this sitcom is connected with an unfortunate situation when our family’s home was robbed. This was like 1988, by which time the show was part of the Friday night “TGIF” classic line-up (everybody remembers that right??) Anyway, got home from my grandparents house to find we got robbed, scared to death as any kid would be… and I’m sitting on the couch (I think my younger brother was sitting next to me) and Perfect Strangers is on the TV while my Dad is in the foyer talking with the police. The memories that stay with you.
Who else has a weird connection of something like this?
And who else loved this show, this theme song, and that good old Friday night in front of TGIF?
Pass this post on to a friend of yours that used to love this show!!
