I'm posting this for no reason other than the fact that the theme song for this long forgotten 1970's era sitcom is still ingrained in my mind after all these years. Remember when sitcoms actually had theme songs? This one is particularly long even by 70's standards. Any Doodle Whore readers out there old enough to remember this chestnut? And where is that pint-sized ingenue Donna Pescow today? Who cares. Enjoy.

    I can't say I remember ever actually watching this show, though I probably did. I do have a vague memory of it. I remember Debralee Scott for some weird reason, and I know who Robert Hays was (Airplane! anyone?)and I remember Donna Pescow (who first came to the public's attention in Saturday Night Fever). The others are a bit of a blank, though Sharon Spelman looks familiar, probably because (as IMDB tells me) she's been a television character actress for decades.

    The thing I love MOST about this clip is how very, very 1979 it all is. The hair (I had that haircut, but I'm not saying which one, oh, okay, ALL of them at some point), the opening credit sequence, the music, even the FONT. I LOVE it.

    The Seventies. The decade that style forgot, perfectly preserved in this delightful YouTube clip... *happy sigh*

    Could I possibly feel any older. No, not really, because I look fabulous! I LUV the 70's! Everything from cheesy sitcoms (like this), disco, 3 piece suits, feathered hair, I could go on and on. As for 'Angie' yes I do remember this sitcom. Donna Pescow, Rob Hayes (not ageing to well these days) and my favorite Doris Roberts. The show itself was very shortlived, much like 'Makin It' which came out the same year. Remember that one? It starred David Naughton from the Dr. Pepper commericals who actually had a number 1 song by the same name (which was later used in 'Meatballs'). Sadly, the Pepper dropped him after his full frontal nude scene in 'American Werewolf In London', which by all acounts wasn't even enough to give me a boner. Ah yes, you just made my day.

    Freakin' amazing. Because I still think about this show, even though I haven't seen it in nearly 30 years. I remember loving it when I was a kid. (Yet more "hindsight" evidence that I was GAY GAY GAY.)

    Donna Pescow was adorable.

    Do I remember the theme to "Angie"!??! It defined my life as a child. Love does bind, but more on that later. All I ever wanted when I was a 10 year old boy was to quit my job as a blue-collar waitress and marry a rich man like Robert Hayes (sexy for the 70's). It's still my dream, but more on that later. And, god bless little Tammy Lauren for having worked for 30 years in TV and currently appears on Y&R. And, who doesn't love a "young" Doris Roberts, who at 147 years young is still popping up at awards shows and Malibu Community Theatre. I LOVED Donna Pescow. She was such a hoot in "Saturday Night Fever" and Angie was so sassy. The opening themes to "The Love Boat" and "Dallas" were among my faves as a child. Thanks, DoodleWhore, for that walk down memory lane. YouTube is a minefield of odd obtuse childhood memories.

    Oh, I definitely remember watching this show! It seemed to be a star vehicle for Donna Pescow, post Saturday Night Fever. I think it was the first time the world ever met Doris Roberts.

    Wasn't see Donna's mom on that 70's show? I'm too lazy to Google it; but I think so...
