The Love Boat (1977-86) had shallow plots and sub plots, but they also had a huge number of cameo appearances by some very, very famous movie and television stars from the Zsa-Zsa Gabor to Caesar Romero, Ernest Borgnine, Jose Ferrer, Van Johnson, Don Ameche, Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., Gene Kelly, Shelly Winters and many more. It was a light, "fluffy" family show that was sometimes funny if nothing better was on at the time.
Small Wonder- I LOVED this show. it came on at like 6:00 a.m. on Saturday. i would set an alarm to wake me so I could watch it! I rarely got up though! 80 Totally Awesome Things From The '80s - BuzzFeed Mobile
"Murphy Brown" I miss this show. I never watched b/c I was too young to care when it was on, but I bought the Box set later in life and watched the whole thing over a weekend...Awesome watch for working women, even still!
