Being an '80s child I'd like to thank TBS and Nick at Nite for airing this show. The first time I watched it was at age 5 or 6 when it was shown at two in the morning on Sundays in my hometown. Unfortunately, they were airing the Furley episodes which would throw me off later on when they showed the first few seasons. Don Knotts was the only actor who stood out, and Priscilla Barnes a little. I remember her name, mostly because one of my sister's friends was named Terri. But when they started airing it on TBS later on as I got older, I would watch and wonder:"Who is this old married couple,?" where's furley? I thought he was first. It became even more confusing when I discovered that the blonde roommate at the time was not Priscilla Barnes but Suzanne Somers. What happened was the first few times that I saw her was on her short-lived show "She's The Sheriff" as well as an animated disney valentine special. Despite all of these confusions, however, once I was old enough to get the jokes it instantly became one of my favorite shows, moreso than what was on at the time!
