You're possibly showin your age, but yeh I remember Horshack and the sweathogs.Plenty of laughs back then. I'm guessing Vinny Barbarino is the only one to have made the bigbig time and remain so...

R.I.P. Horshack

I remember that as well. Haven't seen it in reruns though. This sad event will probably revive interest in the show.

Sadly, I think this is the second sweat hog to pass in a year. Didn't the guy that played Epstein die not too long ago? Very good show. Now for trivia - who wrote and sang the theme song? NO GOOGLING!

I think you are right, Song writer had something to do with the "The Lovin' Spoonful" too.

P.S. Julie, my old girlfriend has aged well,julie.jpg

You're right about that, I was going to use that as a hint!

Great show. Travolta's character was good. Juan Epstein and his ridiculous absentee notes, Freddy "Boom Boom" Washington's "Hi There" in the deep voice, the bad family joke by Gabe Kaplan at the end of the show. One of the shows that actually holds up. The only character I didn't like was, well, never mind.
