Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

Nancy Walker played Howard Cunningham's visiting cousin Nancy Blansky from Las Vegas in, 1977, episode of Happy Days. Blansky's Beauties premiered the following week.

Nancy Blansky (Walker) was a long-time Las Vegas showbiz vet (since the 1950's) and current den mother to a bevy of beautiful Las Vegas showgirls. In addition to keeping order in the chaotic apartment complex where they all lived, Nancy staged the girls' big numbers at the Oasis Hotel. Although the Happy Days episode on which Nancy first appeared took place in the early '60s, Blansky's Beauties itself was set in (then) present-day 1977. If I think about that it makes my brain hurt.

Pat Morita, after the failure of his series Mr. T and Tina, was added to the cast as Arnold, the character he originated on Happy Days.

Blansky's Beauties failed in the ratings, and was cancelled in the spring of 1977. Thus, Walker is one of the few actors in television to have starred in two failed vehicles (the other being The Nancy Walker Show) in the same season (Walker's Blansky's Beauties co-star, Pat Morita, also earned this distinction in the 1976-77 season, having headlined his own short-lived ABC sitcom, Mr. T and Tina, in the fall of 1976, before the launch of Blansky's). After her infamous season at ABC, Walker returned to her popular role as Ida Morgenstern on Rhoda in the fall of 1977.

Fun stuff.
