If you google "Laverne and Shirley and Company", you can see the font they used for that title.

There's one variation you didn't include. It's a season 2 variation that credits the actresses coming through the apartment doors, but it says "Penny Marshall as Laverne" "Cindy Williams as Shirley" (including the character names like the umbrella/front steps opening) as opposed to "Penny Marshall" "Cindy Williams". I haven't seen this opening since ABC daytime reruns in the late 70s/early 80s, but I remember it distinctly, because it so clearly indicated it was a season 2 opening as opposed to season 3 (which didn't use the character names with the actress' credits).
